Yeah, it looks off. But given the above photo without the gun that I found, I'm not discounting the possibility of another cannon having been crudely affixed to the turret.

I posted it in the T110 thread so I should probably post it here too:

 

The O-I as rendered in the Estes 'Super Heavy Tanks' book which came out recently.

I stuck it with the best copy of the the blueprints I could find.

Soukou already beat you to it in the T110 topic by referencing the full document that both Dai and Soukou have on hand for a 100 ton heavy tank

It's actually 130 tons. This is the paper plan version of something bigger than the Iwakuro/Mi-To that was actually made.

Was that supposed to be the same 105 mm gun as on the final O-I plan? Looks somewhat shorter

Going by the measurements on the actual document (I also have an interior view version), I think it's a 15 cm howitzer, specifically the Type 96 15 cm howitzer.
