Battleship Yamato

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.

Pros: Edit

  • 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.

Cons: Edit

  • 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.
