Senkan Yamato (戰艦 大和)

The Ultimate version of the Battleship would have been designed by imperial Japan in the late thirties. The ship would be equipped with the largest calibre of guns ever put on a ship in the entire history of mankind. The Japanese were so secretive about the technical details of their new construct, that workers on the shipyard had to swear an oath of secrecy. And Yamato wasn't alone: it had 2 little brothers. The Musashi and the half finished Shinano.

Altough it's technicalities were impressing (of course there were some flaws like bad shell quality, a poor radar and damage control system), the ship wouldn't leave it's naval base for the near entirety of the conflict. Combined with some luxury provided for the first time to all social classes on the ships (Airconditioning on the entire ship, elevators, menus by renowned chefs in the officer mess), the ship would be dubbed Hotel Yamato by it's crew. Isoroku Yamamoto, head admiral of the Imperial Japanese Navy, would even get fatter while serving on the ship. Eventually Yamato would be sent out in an attempt to reinforce the forces on Okinawa, a suicide mission. Yamato would be sunk by a joint force of US dive and Torpedo bombers when a fire caused by these forces would set a magazine ablaze.

Yamato would eventually prove to be obsolete in a new era of naval warfare dominated by aircraft carriers. It would be comparable to crafting a masterpiece of a sword to fight in a gunfight. But even then Yamato can let people dream of better times or alternate scenarios...
