Ok this doesn't affect anything game-wise but it kinda bothers me anyhow.

The Atago In-game does not seem to have glass covering the windows on the bridge.

dfj579.jpgAs you can see the windows do not seem to have glass in them.

Below are pictures of other ships in the IJN CA line that do have glass in the windows on their bridge.

The Myoko is also shown to have glass on both decks of the bridge.sltvgo.jpg

The Mogami has glass in the windows of its bridge as well.

considering it's an open bridge to begin with.......

 

 

That's the thing tho, even the Yuubari with its open bridge has a font with a glass pane.

Well I've heard our Atago is actually using a Takao model and based on those bridge pictures, our Atago is a pre 1940 Takao. Who knows, glass may have been removed during some seasons due to heat :hmm:

Yup. Atago is actually the alpha test Takao model.

 

Takao was originally the IJN t8 cruiser in alpha. But for reasons known only to WG, Takao was shortly replaced by Myoko (which later switched tiers with Mogami). Meanwhile Kitakami was supposed to have been the t8 IJN premium upon release. But it had issues which are well known by this point, and was pulled. 

 

WG needed a t8 IJN premium in a hurry to release alongside Atlanta. So they took the alpha test Takao they already had ready, brushed her with some blue paint, and called her Atago.

I looked up "takao class cruiser" or something like that and hit up google images. (also, the ship in the picture is Takao) Most pictures were from the side like this and don't really say anything either way. But then I got lucky and struck this picture which I'm fairly certain is from a Japanese report to the naval command showing the result of the Takao bridge refit.

It comes from this book, which includes images of this gorgeous class that have never been seen before outside of Japan

It's probably because of Kantai Collection that Atago was chosen. I mean compared to Takao, Atago is far more popular.

Personally, I don't mind the "glassless" model in the game because I like being able to see the small details in the bridge.  Even the OP's pictures show those details.  I'd rather have that than the shiny texture that's called "glass" in this game.  If she actually had the transparent glass effect with the details inside, that'd be cool.
