At some point, lets respect Yamato, as she gets her model updated from 1944 to 1945

Deepest respects, she was the last Battleship of the IJN on April 7 1945.

Yeah, the US took her and used her for nuclear testing.

It would have to be retrofitted to Nagato, as her & Mutsu were sister ships, & they were not of the Kongo class, as Haruna was..

Well I'm very interested in this from a Historical point of view. From what I had learned, most of the technical drawings photos and other records were destroyed before the occupation forces arrived. Up until recently all that has been known revolved around a few old photo's and some documents that survived, witness statements and a good smattering of hearsay.

If WG have discovered more info I hope it can be collated at some time, and we can have access to it.

Mind you, I hope Tamiya arent going to change their Yamato model to much. I only have the 1980's updated model of her. Lol She'll be out of date and inaccurate. Can't have that can we.

I'm more concerned about what changes they make to the AA...

1945 should have better AA than 1944

I might actually consider rebuying the ship...

Yeah, during the last ranked season...I was broke at that time and didn't have any T9 to play with. I guess it was a very good desicion cause I eventually got Black and Alaska because of the chain of events afterwards and now I'm sitting with 75mil:Smile_trollface:

some substantial technical drawing of original plan managed to survive. the one that almost completly wiped out was details on her moderinization refit.

Historian managed to scrap bits of fragmented information to draw coherent picture, either from foto, documentation, testimony and mostly stuff like maintance log, enginerring reports, trace and trails from manifest etc. but the technical drawing was destroyed.

for exa,ple at 1945, she have 9x3, 24x1 25mm added. there is no technical stuff about those refit survive, or where they added. but Historian know this from leftover logs and  documentation in Kure. prob WG technical/history advisor managed to speculate the layout for her final journey in 1945
