Some say that if these two ships had sailed together, the large mass of awesomeness confined in close proximity to eachother would have caused a disturbance in the gravitational and magnetic fields, causing light to bend around them, making them invisible and enabling them to fly.
At one time, in a Los Alamos test lab in 1946 the blueprints of both ships were held together up against the light, and witnesses reported seeing a mysterious greenish fog appearing in its place. The engineers close to the blueprints vanished. When the green fog lifted, the engineers were changed, some were embedded in the blueprints and others were found wandering aimelessly and without memory in New York City, several hundreds of miles away!
Therefore I think scen #1 and 2 should be changed so that Yamato is avaliable at game start, with unlimited ammo and 999 in belt armor. Oh, and with an airwing consisting of 200 Ki201 jets. And a cruise speed of 300 knots.
Would that be a reasonable representation of these historical facts?
The era of procrastination, of half-measures, of soothing and baffling expedients, of delays, is coming to a close.
In its place we are entering a period of consequences..
