    The controversial moment, Bismarck was huge, and ended badly, however, most of the battleships were useless

      Bismarck was huge, and finished badly

      By the way, yes, I still remembered Yamato, he generally went out to sea once.
      So yes, scale is not necessarily the key to success.

        This is you in vain. Midway, Battle of the Mariana Islands, Battle of the Philippines. Yamato went out to sea more than once.

          I agree. hi I exaggerated a little. But he really made himself so. For their epic sizes, two small fights and all. request

          Combat career in 1942-1944
          As the flagship of the United Fleet, Yamato formally participated in the battle at Midway Atoll on June 4-6, 1942, but actually had no clashes with the enemy, since it was 300 miles behind the Japanese aircraft carriers. May 28, 1942 "Yamato" relocated to the island of Truk, where he spent about a year, playing the role of the floating headquarters of the United Fleet. December 25, 1943, located north of Truk Island, Yamato was hit by a torpedo (charge mass 270 kg) from the American submarine Skate and took into the hole about 3000 tons of water. The ship’s combat capability was severely affected by the flooding of the main caliber aft cellar. In January - April 1944, Yamato underwent repairs and modernization in Kura.
          In June 1944, the Yamato took part in the battle in the Philippine Sea, and the compound, which also included Musashi and a number of other heavy ships, acted in front of its aircraft carriers. On June 19, Yamato first opened fire in a combat situation, but it later became clear that the battleship fired on its own aircraft.
          The Japanese command cherished its battleships for the alleged general battle with the US Navy. In reality, the war in the Pacific Ocean turned into a series of small but debilitating skirmishes, in which the forces of the Japanese fleet melted while the strongest battleships stood up far from the zones of active hostilities. As a result, the Imperial Navy developed a skepticism about these ships, well illustrated by the proverb popular with sailors: “There are three of the biggest and most useless things in the world - the Egyptian pyramids, the Great Wall of China and the battleship Yamato”

            I don’t argue about his "performance", because I completely agree. Although against the background of Musashi’s career, this also looks good. Everything is completely sad there.

            But he really made himself so. For their epic sizes, two small fights and all.

            There was one article on combinedfllet that examined the possibility of using Yamato on the Tokyo Express on Guadalcanal. The conclusion was this: it would be most profitable for the Americans, since regular exits from the Yamato connection would make the IJN fuel balance negative: the additional fuel consumption for operating the OS with superLK was not covered by the receipt.
            And about two small fights ... 386 aircraft from 8 aircraft carriers of two operational formations were thrown at the sinking of the Yamato. Just for comparison: 350 cars took part in the raid on Pearl Harbor.
            But the first full-fledged battle of “Yamato” is yes ... epic file. Moreover, even double: not only did the Japanese LCs were unable to catch up and sink the American AVEs, which were inferior to them in speed, so they also lost contact with them! However, the great merit of the destroyers covering the Taffy 3, as well as the AVE air groups, which forced the linear forces of Kurita to constantly evade, is in this.

      Many copies were broken about the dimension of the ships! But given the geographical location of Russia, probably we do not need "whoppers". Better hundreds of stealth rocket launchers than one tremendous crypt! We are not going to occupy anyone, but for the protection of ships and this displacement is enough! The answer is: "Quality, Quantity - Price"!

      You tell this to Cunningham - who, with the old "queens", drove Supermarina in the tail and in the mane, and after undermining his two LCs, he was forced to deploy convoys back to Malta at the first news of the withdrawal of the Italian fleet. smile
      Or Marines on Guadalcanal. And better - to pilots from the "cactus", whose airbase these "useless LC" almost wiped off the face of the earth. What did it come to - the Americans had to send the cruiser to the slaughter, only so that the pair of “Congo” did not reach the “cactus”. And then for the same purpose to push a couple of post-Washingtonians into the strait. At night. With a scanty escort. Against multiple enemy EM. By what miracle Sodak and Washington managed to evade all torpedoes with 2 KRT, 2 KRL and 9 EM - God alone knows. A torpedo was fired fairly ... only the SRT shot 24 in the milk:
      From 01.02 to 01.14, the Atago and Takao fired 24 torpedoes at the South Dakota, but not one of them hit the target. Another 4 torpedoes, just as unsuccessfully, were launched on 01.02 by the destroyer Asagumo.
      "Torpedo soup" in all its glory. smile

    Apparently top-secret all that relates to “Makarov”. It is not known where he is. It seems he is not even in the Black Sea. Two are working, and the third? ...

    Nice boat.
    Or maybe, in fact, a lot is better, but smaller than all these battleships (remember, the German and Japanese died so beautifully?)

    So Russia's answer went to the Mediterranean on the mattress threat of bombing Domask, in connection with the alleged chemical attack by Assad in Eastern Ghouta. And there, and to the MiG-31 with the "Daggers" is not far away. Gerasimov does not scatter jokes.
