Thats a pity .. BB group with yamato mushashi bismark and tirpitz would see force Z running like ducks on an icy pond
Nooot necessarily... With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the For Poops and Giggles Department brings you today's heavy-weight bout!
In the Axis corner, battleships Yamato, Musashi, Bismarck aaaaaaaaand Tirpitz!
And in the Allied corner, battleship Prince of Wales and battlecruiser Repulse!
It was a five round fight from 20Kyards to about 9Kyards, and the combat report is shown below:
Day Time Surface Combat at 64,65
BB Yamato, Shell hits 4, and is sunk
BB Musashi, Shell hits 6
BB Bismarck, Shell hits 2
BB Tirpitz, Shell hits 2
BB Prince of Wales, Shell hits 6, on fire
BC Repulse, Shell hits 11, on fire, heavy damage
When the fight was over, the Repulse was about ready to sink, having received most of the attention from the Bismarck and the Tirpitz, with a little mid-caliber thumping from the Jap heavy-weights. The PoW was barely damaged, the same as Musashi, Bismarck and Tirpitz.
As for the Yamato? She got Hood'ed. The first 14-inch shell landed on her by the PoW at 9,000 yards exploded her magazine. Glug-glug-glug.
