Yamato is the lead ship of the three Yamato-class battleships. Her sisters are Musashi and Shinano.

As the largest and most powerful battleships ever built, the Yamato-class boasts the highest combat stats among all battleships available to the player. They also have the longest range in-game as base, enabling them to fire first in almost every battle they partake in. Their firepower is so high that they can still achieve the daytime damage cap even when sufficiently damaged. It should be noted that their outstanding power comes with a cost, in the form of immense deployment costs, roughly 2,5x times that of the Nagato-class.

Battleships generally do not have torpedoes and thus they can not take part in the closing torpedo phase, nor gain an additional boost to their night-time firepower. In addition for being the largest surface vessels armed with conventional ballistic weapons, battleships have four equipment slots once fully upgraded and have access to catapult-based seaplanes that can enable daytime artillery spotting with the appropriate equipment setups.

However, battleships do not come equipped with anti-submarine warfare (ASW) capabilities and are thus susceptible to enemy submarine squadrons, which is why battleships are highly reliant on lighter ships like Destroyers or Light Cruisers to dispatch them. This is generally advised, as having a single battleship in an ASW-fleet enables an additional attack for all surface ships to dispatch submarines without the submarines gaining any additional attacks outside their opening and closing torpedoes. An Aviation Battleship is typically recommended, since they are capable of attacking submarines with their seaplane bombers.

Yamato is best used conservatively due to her immense resource consumption, since not only does deploying her cost a lot of resources, but also her repairs, which can cost up to thousands of fuel and steel or more quite easily if she is heavily damaged, not counting the fuel and ammo used in deploying her. Often when the firepower of other Battleships does not prove to be enough against tougher enemies such as a Battleship Water Demon despite using the proper equipment setups. Even then, it is best to exercise discretion, since it may prove costly on the long run.

 

Service History

Yamato (大和?) was the lead ship of the Yamato class of Imperial Japanese Navy World War II battleships. She and her sister ship, Musashi, were the heaviest battleships ever constructed, displacing 72,800 tonnes at full load and armed with nine 46 cm (18.1 inch) 45 Caliber Type 94 main guns, which were the largest guns ever mounted on a warship. Neither ship survived the war.

Named after the ancient Japanese Yamato Province, Yamato was designed to counter the numerically superior battleship fleet of the United States, Japan's main rival in the Pacific. She was laid down in 1937 and formally commissioned a week after the Pearl Harbor attack in late 1941. Throughout 1942, she served as the flagship of the Japanese Combined Fleet, and in June 1942 Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto directed the fleet from her bridge during the Battle of Midway, a disastrous defeat for Japan. Musashi took over as the Combined Fleet flagship in early 1943, and Yamato spent the rest of the year, and much of 1944, moving between the major Japanese naval bases of Truk and Kure in response to American threats. Although present at the Battle of the Philippine Sea in June 1944, she played no part in the battle.

The only time Yamato fired her main guns at enemy surface targets was in October 1944, when she was sent to engage American forces invading the Philippines during the Battle of Leyte Gulf. On the verge of success, the Japanese force turned back, believing they were engaging an entire US carrier fleet rather than the light escort carrier group that was all that stood between the battleship and the vulnerable troop transports.

During 1944, the balance of naval power in the Pacific decisively turned against Japan, and by early 1945, its fleet was much depleted and badly hobbled by critical fuel shortages in the home islands. In a desperate attempt to slow the Allied advance, Yamato was dispatched on a one-way mission to Okinawa in April 1945, with orders to beach herself and fight until destroyed protecting the island. The task force was spotted south of Kyushu by US submarines and aircraft, and on 7 April 1945 she was sunk by American carrier-based bombers and torpedo bombers with the loss of most of her crew.

Trivia

  • 2013 August event E-4 completion reward
  • Requires 2.5 times more fuel compared to Nagato-class battleships
'Hirihoukenten' sock
  • Was cynically referred as "Yamato Hotel", a hotel located in Dalian China during WW2 time, as she never took part in any major battle pre-1944 due to her high consumption and her status as IJN's flagship. Referred the same in-game as for same reason.  
  • Yamato's remodel art features a 'Hirihoukenten (非理法権天)' kneesock (originally a flag). It reflects one of the old philosophy in feudal Japan where foolishness (非) is not above sensibility (理), sensibility is not above law (法), law is not above authority (権), and authority is not above divinity (天). As the emperor was treated as a divine figure in imperial Japan it has a meaning of "no men can oppose the (divine) emperor".  A slogan adopted by the Imperial Japanese navy, this flag was hung on Yamato on her final voyage towards Okinawa.
  • Sunk 7 April 1945 north of Okinawa (at 30° 22′ 0″ N, 128° 4′ 0″ E) in the famed Operation Ten-Go, along with Yahagi, Isokaze, Kasumi, Hamakaze and Asashimo.
  • Wreck discovered on August 1st, 1985, in 1,120 ft of water in the East China Sea 180 miles Southwest of Kyushu and North of Okinawa .
  • She wears an Armband that resembles the Maritime signal Flag for the letter "Z", the Z flag played a major role in Japanese Naval History. On May 27, 1905, Admiral Heihachirō Tōgō raised the Z flag on his flagship the IJN Mikasa before the start of the Battle of Tsushima and the Z flag was raised on the Akagi on the eve of the Attack on Pearl Harbor. The raising of the flag means the following: "The fate of Imperial Japan hangs on this one battle; all hands will exert themselves and do their best."
  • She is an option for A43.
