Operation Ten-ichi-go, April 6-7, 1945 
 
Close-up of the previous photo shows Yamato smoking heavily from the bomb hits of the initial attack wave that struck the aft superstructure and blew up secondary turret #2 as seen earlier.

Note the front 18.1" guns still pointing to port from where the attacks came.
