Japanese Super Battleships by LyokoWarrior4ever Japanese Super Battleships by LyokoWarrior4ever
Battleships Yamato and Musashi the largest battleships ever created, a third ship the Shinano was laid down but halfway through its construction it was converted into an Aircraft Carrier. Both mega ships were sunk by US Task forces. Musashi sunk during Leyte Gulf and Yamato during Operation Ten-Go both were beautiful ships and it is sad to see them go down

(Edit post 2/8/14, due to some complaints I will put in typing, that I am not the original owner of this pic, Oriyoshi Ohrai is the original artist, who made this as the cover of 'The Maru Special Japanese Naval magazine back in the 80's. For those offended, thinking I had made this, I apologize here and now. That goes with most other Yamato/naval pics I post. I will do my best from now on to do so.

This is truly as masterpiece as both ships were indeed deserving of the designation battleship.

Ps I think the Iowa class battleships (USA) were the only allied battleships that stand a chance 1v1

Besides the detail and making the battleships a sort negative space (great composition) the best thing about this is the mood. Very ominous. But these things have probably been said before. Great work!
