    What you have to understand here is that the japanese navy (IJN) had a doctrine, just like every other force did. Yamato and her sister ships werent built on a whim. At the time the Battleship was still the Queen of the navy for all nations. Japan withdrew from the Washington naval treaty and then followed the IJN doctrine for fighting its most likely enemy, the USA. The plan was to fight a decisive Naval engagement somewhere between Pearl and the Philippines.

    The Yamato and Musashi fit right into this doctrine, they were designed to engage the US battleships in this decisive battle and win. They werent designed to fight alone, they would be part of a consolidated battlegroup. So the fact that they may not be able to take on a destroyer is insignificant as their escort cruisers and destroyers would be there to do that job. Thus, you have to realise that they were built for a purpose.

    The fact that carriers overtook this doctrine is plain now, but wasnt in the 1930's and it should be remembered.

    Now onto the weird proposition that the Germans could have sold their navy to Japan. I have to ask this. How the heck would they get there? How would they get from Germany or Norway to Japan. This is just an idiotic proposition and I cant believe that anyone with common sense would even propose it.

    No, silly, Germany would put panzer tracks on the ships and send them to Japan via the north pole!

    Not after 1936, when the 1922 Washington Naval Treaty limiting ship construction expired. Yamato and Musashi weren't ordered until early 1937, after the treaty had expried, although design work began earlier following Japan's 1934 decision not to continue the ship construction limitation treaties.

    After 1936 Japan's ship construction proceeded under great secrecy. The future Allies had no reliable intelligence giving accurate details of the IJN fleet.

    Yup. I went to the Yamato Museum, where they had a 1/10 scale model.
    Freaking huge. They actually got a shipbuilding company to make the hull!
    The flooding system was pretty advanced too. So were the Soda machines on board.

    Could you post a pic of the model please? I'd be right keen to see it.

    I'm not sure that a 1/10th model could fit on your screen.

    It must be about the biggest model, on any scale, ever made.

    I suppose that was the same in most battleships, but you'd think A turret crew would be bleeding from the ears if B fired over them.

    Not only battleships. A former teacher was ex Royal Navy. Though nominally a Navigation Officer He was once in the A turret of either Hood or Barham when B turret let loose overtop..... according to this man it was a couple days before ears regained some sense of what hearing was supposed to be, despite ear protectors and heavy flash-over gear.

    Going by his report, I'd nae wish to be in a turret when the thing let loose, let alone when the next turret fired it's weapons.

    Seeing that magnificent scale model, I can only think that that ship was truly the last of it's Kind. Yes, others went on and exist today, though they barely match the Yamato, despite their awesome magnificence. Those remaining Battleships are surely the last such ships to exist. I have to say I'm impressed.

    Off topic, but that's the joy of this forum.

    First time I realised the difference between being at the butt and somewhere forward of the breech was sitting in a car as a kid when someone fired a .243 or .270 over the roof. Gave me a whole new appreciation of acoustics, and there was a car roof between me and the muzzle, even if the car windows were open.

    I've often wondered what it was like for the hearing of troops in battle when, for example, riflemen's weapon pits are forward of machine guns, or in contacts and ambushes where you're a few feet forward of the muzzle of the bloke beside you. It must destroy hearing for a while afterwards, which in some circumstances must leave you prey to approaching enemy you can't hear.
