Harima 播磨
This is a complete delusion told in the novel “Red Sun Black Cross” by writer 佐藤大輔Sato Daisuke, big battleship lover. Harima was the monster in 1950 of his novel world. I would like to post about him later.

Holy...a Japanese H-45!

Would love to read some of his books...shame they aren't available in English. Same goes for the anime Konpeki no Kantai.

Thanks!
Sadly he died on March 22, 2017 (age 52).
Below is the map of the Panama Canal copied from the book of his work "Red Sun Black Cross / Panama Invasion 2". There were three locks for water level adjustment, which were obstacles to the passage of US Navy battleships.

Reprints of his book were published on the occasion of his death.
After the invasion of the Panama Canal, the episodes have only been published as short stories.
