A modern torpedo is an underwater ranged weapon launched above or below the water surface, self-propelled towards a target, and with an explosive warhead designed to detonate either on contact with or in proximity to the target. Historically, such a device was called an automotive, automobile, locomotive or fish torpedo; colloquially a fish. The term torpedo originally applied to a variety of devices, most of which would today be called mines. From about 1900, torpedo has been used strictly to designate a self-propelled underwater explosive device.

While the 19th-century battleship had evolved primarily with a view to engagements between armored warships with large-calibre guns, the invention and refinement of torpedoes from the 1860s onwards allowed small torpedo boats and other lighter surface vessels, submarines/submersibles, even improvised fishing boats or frogmen, and later light aircraft, to destroy large ships without the need of large guns, though sometimes at the risk of being hit by longer-range artillery fire.

One can divide modern torpedoes into lightweight and heavyweight classes; and into straight-running, autonomous homers, and wire-guided types. They can be launched from a variety of platforms.

Well;

The building is very good - that is why I have given the diamond.

But there are few strange things; first what is the sense behinde the third image?

Why does your description contains an explanation about a torpedo?! The text is correct but what is the link between the imperial palace and a torpedo?

The last Question - why does it is tagged as Japan? Isn't this supposed to be the Imperial Palace in the Forbidden City in China? China and Japan has not much in common....

I guess you should take more care about your presenting as I don''t think that any of this was supposed to be here...

My building is a mixture of Shishin-den Hall in Kyoto and Heijo Palace

Lol I didn't notice these things until you point them out. I have also seen one map earlier where they built a Japanese-themed village with cherry blossom and stuffs and named it "China Village", I wonder why the two countries with totally different culture got mistaken for one another so easily.

Well I guess East Asian have the same problem with for Example German and French.

But all the things I mention, because I take very high care for them on my own. Most times I refuse to comment or value anything that is not discribed well by its publisher.

Oh actually I just found out the Imperial Palace in Japan bears more resemblance to the buildings in this map than the ones in the Forbidden City in China :D But it would be helpful if the creator had a more detailed explanation of the inspiration behind the build.
