she was a great ship in her time..............!!
If u count the number of guns she had, it would be one hundred and sixty two
Yamato was on my mind this past April 7th for just that reason. If you don't already have it you might want to read 'A Glorious Way to Die' by Russell Spurr, about the Yamato's final days.
