The Yamato battleship is the pinnacle of the battleship type. The biggest battleship in the world, and the best known Japanese Navy ship. Sadly remembered for her defeat in her last battle against 227 American aircraft, which became a demonstrative execution and ended with the giant being defeated and the hopes of the Japanese command crashed. Built in secret, and at great expense, she emerged as the largest battleship in history. Born to terrify her enemies, she'd cost eight billion USD to build in today's dollars. She represents the pinnacle of battleship building, but launched at a key turning point in naval warfare history. The rise of aircraft-based naval combat left her immensely powerful, but ill-equipped to fight sustained air attacks. Still, nothing captures the imagination of naval aficionados quite like Yamato. There's a mountain of knowledge just below the surface. Press "Play!" Naval Legends is a series about the construction, service, and daring deeds of legendary 20th-century ships.

This is probably the first time japan made a very overpowered ship instead of a badly made carrier like kaga soryu hiryu akagi shokaku and taiho as kaga sunk at june 4th 1942 3-4 bombs hitting her and creating a chain reaction below the deck as there were fires vaporizing torpedos,bombs and other flamabke materials, the taiho was sunk by a single torp launched by uss albacore although it didnt do any damage it ruptured gasolin tanks and had the same chain reaction to the kaga.
I cant help but wonder what would have happened to Yamato under the circumstances she wasn't destroyed in the months leading up to the end of WW2??
I visited and came to search about ships in a good time it seems.
The Yamato museum is one of the most incredible places ever seen.
Why there was no air cover for Yamato?
I visited the Yamato museum in Kure in 2015, it was well worth it! The detail on the model is incredible and there were also some relics salvaged from the original ship on display.
she's also best girl in kantai collection (fight me)
Imagine building a new yamato with modern/state of the art technology and weapon.😱
The level of craftsmanship that created this monster was ahead of it's time.
It's took 15 carriers , 600 planes , 75 torpedoes and 100 bombs to sink it, forgot allso 20 battleships
zYrj3gzXgeA&t=10m50s 10:50 The U.S. Navy defeated the heavily armed Yamato because the Yamato battleship was ill-prepared to defend against modern naval air assets…
The fate of Yamato was sealed when she was designed! ... Therefore, if your vocation is engineering, in order to be good at it you must first consult history.
56th like. Very well played. Super clip. Very happy new year 2022. Musically yours. Greetings from Paris.
This DOCUMENTARY, the effects, narration, music etc are very good.
Task force 58 or the strongest fleet
Wow I'd love to go to yomoto museum that ship was so amazing I think she probly could of Ben safe but the bigger you are harder you fall when us went in for the kill they went in with every thing .imagin a battle of just battle ships she would still be around if not for planes
What if the US stole the design of Yamato it will bring Iowa and Missouri to shame
