The Yamato is the most beautiful ship to ever float. The above picture is a dynamic scene of power and motion. What an amazing huge ship. It was a killing machine. She didn't have much of a chance, however against airplane bombs.

The US Iowa class would have decimated this overweight clumsy boxer with it's vastly superior accuracy!
