Why are americans such barbarians, also, post cool ships and talk about her

Those are some janky ass cannons man, but I like it.

As far as subs go I really like the Balao class, but that's pretty vanilla and there isn't much to be said about it desu

Yeah, I agree. It was a real shame to sink the Nagato. I really wish we would have just fixed it and returned it to the SDF or at the least, turn it into a Museum ship.

I think it's horrible that we did what we did to such a beautiful ship, but

>She survives with only minor damage but eventually sinks because of a little hole the americans didn't fix because of a little bit of radiation
That's wrong. From what I remember, didn't part of the hull deform and cause it to tip over? Either way, it is horrible that we allowed it to flip rather than sending dudes on board and having them clean it and fix it up before it sank; lord knows we didn't give a shit about exposing anyone to radiation before the 60s.

>She was towed to the Pacific via Philadelphia and the Panama Canal,[77] departing on 3 March.[81] The ship survived two atomic bomb blasts: Test Able, an air burst on 1 July 1946 and Test Baker, a submerged detonation on 25 July.[83] Prinz Eugen was moored about 1,200 yards (1,100 m) from the epicenter of both blasts and was only lightly damaged by them;[84] the Able blast only bent her foremast and broke the top of her main mast.[85] She suffered no significant structural damage from the explosions but was thoroughly contaminated with radioactive fallout.[83] The irradiated ship was towed to the Kwajalein Atoll in the central Pacific, where a small leak went unrepaired due to the radiation danger.[86] On 29 August 1946, the US Navy decommissioned Prinz Eugen.[83]

>By late December 1946, the ship was in very bad condition; on 21 December, she began to list severely.[77] A salvage team could not be brought to Kwajalein in time,[83] so the US Navy attempted to beach the ship to prevent her from sinking, but on 22 December, Prinz Eugen capsized and sank.[77] Her main battery gun turrets fell out of their barbettes when the ship rolled over. The ship's stern, including her propeller assemblies, remain visible above the surface of the water.[86] The US government denied salvage rights on the grounds that it did not want the irradiated steel entering the market.[83] In August 1979, one of the ship's screw propellers was retrieved and placed in the Laboe Naval Memorial in Germany.[6] The ship's bell is currently held at the National Museum of the United States Navy, while the bell from Tegetthoff is held in Graz, Austria.[63]

why would you risk lives to save something with no practical use?

Historical value.

>Uh, we don't want this piece of shit
Well, the US sure did want its tech. As for the nuking part, that happened after the US crews couldn't keep the ship operable on their own.

We had already ditched battleships, the last one the US ever commissioned was the USS Missouri.

Prinz Eugen wasn't a battleship, though.

Either way, if the US crew had been as capable in keeping it operational, it may have served longer. Well, its best parts had already been ripped out either way, for testing on regular US ships.
>>
>>16068
We tried to save her you fucking moron. We washer her down multiple times but even after 5 months she was too dangerous to work on so we let her sink. Plus, the Admiral Hipper-class series of cruisers was absolutely worthless at everything except convoy raiding in the North Atlantic. She deserved to be used as a practice target.

No, that's a completely normal thing to do. I bet you even have a car wallpaper and you call me the normie.

The Prinz Eugen's still there, but upside down.

There was a guy who used to post every week on /hr/ who had literally thousands of pics of old warships in their current state. Crazy to think that there are ships from WWII and even older left abandoned to the elements that are still intact.

IJN destroyer Kikuzuki was left sitting in the backwater of a bay in the Solomon islands for years. Unfortunately, the ship has corroded so badly that now all that's left is under the water and half buried in mud...

It sounds like living on gilligan's island.

basically they found out that nukes don't do anything to a fleet

IJN battleship nagato didn't sink, the only ships that sank were the ones directly under the blast
