The biggest warship of World War II and the world's largest battleship. Yamato was designed around the idea that an individual ship could have superiority over any battleship of a potential enemy. Her main guns had overwhelming firepower. The ship maintained a very high level of survivability due to reliable armor and robust torpedo protection. Yamato’s AA capabilities were highly efficient due to carrying numerous AA artillery guns.
- Unrivaled main battery guns that can even penetrate other battleships at close range when they're bow on.
- Extremely good dispersion, but landing hits on targets beyond beyond 18km is still challenging.
- Second largest health pool and heaviest armor in the game.
- Large quantity of secondaries can easily kill a destroyer at very close range.
- Surprisingly good agility for its size.
- Impressive torpedo bulge as long as torpedoes hit her torpedo belt.
- Longest main battery range in the game, but shells take a long time to travel and are extremely inaccurate when firing at targets that far out.
- Extremely large size but still smaller than Izumo and Großer Kurfürst.
- Very high notoriety and potential danger makes her a priority target for the enemy team.
- Even with upgraded AA the lack of short range AA guns will make you very vulnerable to enemy carriers should their strike aircraft get close enough to dump their payload.
- Extremely slow turret traverse rate of 72 seconds for traversing 180 degrees.
- Poor shell velocity of the main battery makes it difficult to hit distant targets.
- Long rudder shift time.
- Casemate armor can be easily penetrated by other battleships, and even cruiser armor piercing rounds at close range.
- Extremely vulnerable to fires due to the percent damage dealt to health pools.
- Despite being heavily armored, her enormous citadel, high above waterline up to her belt, is still highly vulnerable when enemies have a clear shot at her broadside.
