>>28496176 The Yamato isnt that butthurt inducing to the Chinese, since it didnt take part in the invasion of their country.
The Izumo and Kaga were. And these names are already in use again.
But in the end, these ships were nothing but worthless Helicopter-carriers. Nothing the Chinese airforce and navy actually fears by having the clear edge in terms of supersonic missile capability and air-superiority over the Japanese.
>>28496026 Why are Nips so fucking obsessed with the Yamato? It was a terrible fucking ship, literal useless shit. Too big, too slow. Did nothing of worth in the war except sink one ship during Midway, and then was later sunk in a humiliating manner.
>>28496026 Why do people praise the Yamato so much and assumed it was some unbeatable ship? If the Japs believed so much in it why did you constantly keep it at distance with their other ships to protect and it ran at the first sign of trouble?
>>28497201 Because it was a 70k ton ship with 18 inch guns. It *was* unbeatable by any one battleship. It ran from torpedoes at Samar but that's nothing unusual as no US battleships would've sat there and tanked torp hits.
>>28496026 I NEED TO KNOW A HENTAI VERSION OF HER GODDAMN I NEED TO BEAT MY DICK OFF SO BAD NOW HOLY FUCKING SHIT SOMEONE GICE ME TOE LINK TO A WEBSITE THAT HAS THAT CHARACTER EXPOSING HER TITS AND PUSSY HOLY FUCK I'M HORNY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
>>28498667 It would have been roughly 50/50 for a one on one between Yamato and a SouDak or Iowa. All that range and hitting power is worthless if they can't hit anything, and IJN FC wasn't on the same planet as the USN. The USN, meanwhile, could put first salvos on target in pitch dark from nigh on 23,000yds out. Sure, if one of those 18"ers actually hit a vulnerable spot, there could have been real trouble (why it's 50/50 - the odds get a lot longer for Yamato at night), but it wouldn't have been an automatic one hit kill outside of a golden BB.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Leyte_Gulf#Battle_of_Surigao_Strait_.2825_October.29 >At 03:16, West Virginia's radar picked up the surviving ships of Nishimura's force at a range of 42,000 yd (38,000 m) and had achieved a firing solution at 30,000 yd (27,000 m). West Virginia tracked them as they approached in the pitch black night. At 03:53, she fired the eight 16 in (410 mm) guns of her main battery at a range of 22,800 yd (20,800 m), striking Yamashiro with her first salvo. She went on to fire a total of 93 shells. At 03:55, California and Tennessee joined in, firing a total of 63 and 69 14 in (360 mm) shells, respectively. Radar fire control allowed these American battleships to hit targets from a distance at which the Japanese battleships—with their inferior fire control systems—could not return fire.
This was the last BB-BB engagement ever. And it was radar FC and stupid accurate fire that decided it, not the biggest guns.
>>28499035 Hell, even one of the radar upgraded North Carolinas would have made a good showing of themselves. In some ways, the shorter cal 16" guns on the North Carolinas and SouDaks are even better suited to dropping plunging deck fire at long range. The incidence angle is much steeper for them.
>>28499035 You are deluded. Maybe an Iowa has a fighting chance, but a SD would be a sacrificial lamb.
>This was the last BB-BB engagement ever. And it was radar FC and stupid accurate fire that decided it, not the biggest guns. And two years before, South Dakota was almost sunk except for the Washington sneaking up and saving it from the Kirishima.
>The USN, meanwhile, could put first salvos on target in pitch dark from nigh on 23,000yds out. Which must be why the SD was getting pummeled without being able to do anything, right?
>>28499188 >South Dakota suddenly suffered a series of electrical failures, reportedly during repairs when her chief engineer locked down a circuit breaker in violation of safety procedures, causing her circuits repeatedly to go into series, making her radar, radios, and most of her gun batteries inoperable.
>>28499188 >And two years before, South Dakota was almost sunk except for the Washington sneaking up and saving it from the Kirishima.
Yes. Clearly the IJN was wise to rely on and crow about human error during a night battle in the engine room of the enemy. This was clearly the winning strategy. Meanwhile, during that battle, before her engine room error, South Dakota almost single handedly rendered half of that column of 1 BB, 2 CA, 2 CL and 9 DD afire or crippled. The USN force was 2 BB and 4DD, btw. The only reason that entire jap task force was not put on the bottom is because South Dakota had an operator foul up. That's it. As it is, they still lost 1 BB and 1 DD plus 4 transports and a failed mission to the 3 USN DDs lost. If that's what a "sacrificial lamb" looks like, I'll take it any day.
>Which must be why the SD was getting pummeled without being able to do anything, right? See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_South_Dakota_%28BB-57%29#Naval_battle_of_Guadalcanal >A quarter moon assured good visibility. At a range of 18,100 yd (16,600 m) three of the leading Japanese ships were visually sighted from the bridge of the South Dakota. The USS Washington fired on the lead Japanese ship, thought to be a battleship or heavy cruiser. A minute later, the South Dakota's main battery opened fire on the nearest Japanese ship. Both South Dakota's initial salvos struck and started fires on the respective targets. The South Dakota then fired on a second target, continuing firing until the ship disappeared from its radar. South Dakota's Turret No. 3 then began firing over its stern on another Japanese target, demolishing South Dakota's own aircraft in the process. Firing continued until the target was thought to be sunk. Meanwhile, South Dakotas secondary 5" batteries were engaged, firing upon some eight Japanese destroyers that lay close to the shore of Savo Island.
>>28499846 continued >A short lull followed after the radar plot showed four Japanese ships, just clear of the left tangent of Savo, approaching from the starboard bow, range 5,800 yd (5,300 m). Searchlights from the second ship in the Japanese column illuminated South Dakota. The Washington opened with her main battery on the leading, and largest, Japanese ship. The South Dakota's secondary batteries put out the lights, and it shifted all batteries to bear on the third ship, believed to be a cruiser, which soon gushed smoke.
All this before the fault in the switch room. You're a dumbass. No, it shouldn't have happened, but she still gave a good accounting of herself.
>>28499951 Very poor choice of name to call a warship, that is morale breaker just waiting to happen. Still, I find it funny that the name Yamato was actually used multiple times before the giant floating hotel was ever made.
Found this slightly sensationalized blow by blow of that battle. Good timeline on both sides of it, marred a little by an excited tone and occasional hyperbole. The bias is clear as if the writer had a father on the Washington. He dings up South Dakota pretty good. Still, all in all a good read.
>>28500544 The anime and the long decades of peace helped Yamato's popularity skyrocket. Strangely enough, it looks like KanColle is actually starting to erode that aura, especially with the whole hotel insult, making Yamato into more of a joke these days.
>>28498789 >the Yamato is all by herself in the ocean minding to her own when suddenly >multiple U.S. battleships in full throttle approaching her and a flight carrier is unleashing his fast athletic planes >the Yamato is startled by the sudden presence of the american military in full power looming over the ocean distance but she quickly gets her cannons ready to take aim as she quickly gets herself up and ready >but it was too late >one of the dive bombers from the flight carrier take out her large cannons by dropping their hot explosive loads all over her shiney beautiful cannons and Yamato is embarrassed by her cannons being blown out by the americans fast dive bombers >the battleships are closing in on her now and it will only be a matter of time before they all subdue her and do things to her >she helplessly try to get away by turning around and turn back when suddenly another dive bomber swings by and drops another hot explosive load right in her rear end! >the Yamato screams in embarrassment as she realizes her rear end panties has been torn off exposing her naughty place that is leaking with wetness! >one of the battleships caught up and rammed his strong patriotic proud american steel right into her rear end as she screams in both pain and pleasure from the impact and then the american battleships started to unleash the american fury of loads onto the now weak Japanese ship now >she struggles to get away but is blocked by one of the battleships and it rams his bold headed eagle front right into her poor fragile face and gets a mouth full of Uncle Sam's anthem into her mouth >she is now gagging on the american's large front as she is getting pounded in the rear end like as though she was nothing but a tugboat now but suddenly >BOOM of hot massive oversize loads goes all over here body from the other battleships on her left and right side and that was when she realizes she will never escape from her wet demise and ecstasy of orgasms >She will never forget.
>>28500880 >One month >1945 It really grates my nerves when they fuck up like this. I know this is supposed to be cheap porn, but historically, Nagato was anchored off Kure for over a year before the tests took place.
