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

Maybe. But remember, the Iowa was built for speed, the Yamato for just pointing its guns in one direction and saying "FUCK EVERYTHING IN THAT DIRECTION". But the Iowa could probably land more hits, as its guns were aided by computers and radar. Yamato, if it were to hit the Iowa, would probably devastate the Iowa.

Yes but let's also not forget the Iowa after the Korean war (or Vietnam) was upgraded to include cruise mussels into its arsenal and cruise missile are deadly to any armored warship like a battleship or heavy cruiser but still it'll be a close one like you said because it took 21 bombs and 17 torpedoes to sink the Yamato which is quire impressive by battle ship standards

Well, I'm talking about if the Iowa was in it's WWII state. It'd be quite a fight, thats for sure.
