IJN Yamato by zulumike IJN Yamato by zulumike
The IJN Yamato, named after the ancient Japanese Yamato Province, was the lead ship of the Yamato class of battleships that served with the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II. She and her sister ship, Musashi, were the heaviest and most powerfully armed battleships ever constructed, displacing 72,800 tonnes at full load and armed with nine 46 cm (18.1 inch) main guns. Neither ship survived the war.

After the sinking of this battleship, the battleship era died.

The battleship is based on a photo of a 3D model with permission from 3DHISTORY.DE.

Cheers, Mike

Same fate as the Bismarck, knocking out the steerage by torpedo planes.

I agree air dominance destroyed these ships.

The Bismarck wasn't even designed to stitch up all ends. It was just adjusting itself to the newer plane while forgetting the Swordfishes.

It was the emergence of aircraft that sent the battleship era to its watery graves, and the arrival of the aircraft carrier took them out of the picture entirely. But even before that, the effectiveness of battleships as a whole has been questioned.

Still doesn't change the fact that they're usually the first warships that come to mind whenever the term 'flagship' is brought up, though.

Actually aircraft carriers became "flagships" as both the IJN and USN built their naval forces around the aircraft carrier in WW2 in the Pacific War.

Vice Admiral Nagumo's "flagship" was the IJN Akagi at Midway.
