Although the Iowa had superior targeting, at THAT range there's no doubt in
my mind that the Iowa would have lost.

I'm all pro America, I served, but the Iowa would have been shredded by the
Yamato's guns. Now at a realistic range, the Iowa could easily have out
gunned the Yamato, since it's targeting was heavily reliant on spotter
planes, while the Iowa's was radar based.

I can somewhat agree to this due to te fact that the Iowa's immense speed
could easly catch up to the Yamato to get inside for the firing distance,
the reason why I think why the Yamato lost was because the gun accuracy
between Iowa and Yamato was outclassed, people seem to misunderstand the
bigger battleships always wins, that is false, even though Iowa is a longer
ship than Yamato lol, if this was an h44 battleship which was never made
and h44 lost to Iowa I completly disagree with that

Loved the video, however not very realistic. In reality one or both of
these battleships in a one on one battle would have been disabled or sunk
rather quickly after a slug fest at such close ranges like this one from a
few salvos of 16 and 18 inch shells.
Don't see much use of the main 16 inch and 18 inch guns on ether ship
throughout the battle. Both ships can fire 2 shells a minute from each main
gun, don't recall seeing even one full broadside from the main guns on
ether ship. The muzzle flash and smoke from the main guns is almost
non-existent. Saw what appear to be lots of fire from the secondary guns on
both ships which would almost useless against each other.
Noticed sailors on the main deck. When the main guns are being used on
battleships there never is any sailors on deck due to the overwhelming
concussions of the big guns that would knock them overboard or kill them.
The visible battle damage with fires and smoke as in so little of it on
both ships detracts from the overall quality of this video battle. The
paint on both ships looks totally intact throughout this entire battle
with one listing and the other sinking.
Hate to be critical as you put a lot of work into this video, however you
got to work on your realism. This video looks more like a video game. Note
there are some actual videos of battleships in action here on you tube. You
should watch them.

And why all the secondary fire from both ships? Not clear what caused the
death blow to Yammy, certainly not 5'' shells. You had it sinking like
torpedos hit it. And does the game restrict you to only creating short
jerky images of the ships? Also, the salvos sound like space weapons. Nope,

Автор lingcod91 (1153 года назад)
I don't think Iowa would have put, or got, herself in such a close
broadside slug exchange. Yammy had the greater range and would used it.
Whether she scored a hit on Iowa isn't the point, steaming into 18" shells
would be extremely dangerous. But to cross her T might have been Iowa's
best chance of success. The setup is indeed too unrealistic to judge,
except to say it would have been ugly.
BTW, saying the Bismarck got lucky is like saying Ali threw some lucky
punches. Hood made some fatal errors, and that's all it took. Ultimately,
judgement and skills outweight armor and shellfire. The fears about
Bismarck's firepower was fully justified by the British. The order was: No
single battleship was to engage Bismarck. Hood arrogently pushed that
order, mistook her target, and was a bit late getting into position to use
her full main guns. But England was disparate and had to prevent Bismarck
from reaching the Atlantic. Bismarck might have changed the course of
history. A very powerful ship.

That same fatal flaw that sunk the real Yamato. Weakly protected magazine
under the #2 main cannon. As powerful as the IJN was it seems odd such a
massive flaw would make it to production. That and someone mentioned a real
Iwoa commander would never get that close: Yamato had 2 secondary guns. 2.
The Mighty Mo had 7 on each side. Getting that close was the only way she
could topple the Yamato had they ever faced 1v1. Fortunately the Mo had the
fastest engines of all ships in that class and could do just that.

Battleship were the centerpiece of tasks forces. No battleship would fight
alone. The US had much more "at sea time" which translates to a better
working crew. Consider how poorly the Yamato was handled during the Battle
of the San Bernardino Straight. (Battle of the Leyte Gulf) If the IJN task
force had been better handled/led it should have been a devastating US
defeat. Instead it ending up being a US victory.

Not sure how the Iowa would win here. Both ships are close enough that
their shells will smash through each others armour, but Yamato's shells are
larger and have superior penetration. The Iowa has speed and accuracy on
her side, but at this range I'd find it hard to believe that the Yamato's
gunners would miss when their target is in plain sight. Yamato fires a
heavier broadside too.

>>-----------------> UnknownPerson onGoogle <---------------<< HEY
JERKO! Americans have reasons to call HMS hood a battleship! Hood was the
largest ship in the Royal Navy when completed; thanks to her great
displacement, in theory she combined the firepower and armour of a
battleship with the speed of a battlecruiser, causing some to refer to her
as a fast battleship. Wiki states, "Battlecruisers served in the navies of
Britain, Germany, the Ottoman Empire, Australia and Japan during World War
I. By the end of the war (WWI), capital ship design had developed with
battleships becoming faster and battlecruisers becoming more heavily
armoured, blurring the distinction between a battlecruiser and a fast
battleship. The Washington Naval Treaty, which limited capital ship
construction from 1922 onwards, treated battleships and battlecruisers
identically, and the new generation of battlecruisers planned was scrapped
under the terms of the treaty."

Автор surearrow (237 лет назад)
>>-------------------> The real U.S. Commander would never get so
close. Placing his vessle at a horrible disadvantage and not using the
Iowa's strengths. American fire control and radar on the BB Iowa was
light years beyond anything in the IJN, and we knew this at the time. The
Iowa could make multiple hits a on a dime, and give you nice cents change.

The bottom line is that, after 1943 or so, having the world's best optical
fire-control systems was largely irrelevant. The night battle between
Washington and Kirishima near Savo pretty much settled the point; good
radar usually beats good optics in a stand-up fight. And the radar used by
Washington off of Guadalcanal was not as good as the sets fitted aboard
Then there's the fact that all radar fire-control is not created equal.
Radar operating at meter or decimeter wavelengths is useful for ranging,
but lacks the angular accuracy necessary for training. In practical terms,
this means that a decimetric set can develop a range solution via radar,
but must rely on an optical director to supply training information for the
battery. This hybrid fire-control solution is, of course, limited by the
quality of the optics available, and also by the visual horizon (which is
closer than the radar horizon), and weather conditions. Only with the
advent of 10cm and (later) 3cm wavelength sets was true 'blindfire' radar
fire-control achievable, wherein the firing ship need never come into
visual range of the opposing vessel. The Germans, Japanese, and Italians
never developed sets of this capability (both the Japanese (despite its
10cm wavelength) and German sets were usable for fire control against a
battleship-sized target only out to a range of about 27,000 yards.) The
bottom line is, then, that the Allied vessels, and particularly Iowa and
South Dakota, would enjoy an enormous advantage in gunfire control over
their adversaries. She would have the ability to lob shells over the visual
horizon, and would also perform better in complete darkness or adverse
weather conditions.

The final adjusted rating also reflects the fact that American FC systems
employed by far the most advanced stable vertical elements in the world. In
practical terms, this meant that American vessels could keep a solution on
a target even when performing radical maneuvers. In 1945 test, an American
battleship (the North Carolina) was able to maintain a constant solution
even when performing back to back high-speed 450-degree turns, followed by
back-to-back 100-degree turns.7 This was a much better performance than
other contemporary systems, and gave U.S. battleships a major tactical
advantage, in that they could both shoot and maneuver, whereas their
opponents could only do one or the other.

John McGlan - The Iowas were NOT longer than the Yamatos. NOR were they
designed to destroy the Yamatos. The Iowas were well under construction
before ANYONE outside the japanese high command even knew that the Yamatos
had even been DESIGNED, let alone what they were capable of. You are
thinking of the MONTANA class ships which were still under construction
when the Yamato and Musashi were finally sunk by aircraft. The Yamato had
radar like the Iowa, and the Yamato's guns outranged the Iowas by almost 5
nautical miles. She also had nearly identical speed. If these two
behemoths had ever had the misfortune to meet on the high seas, in good
weather, the Iowa would have been on the bottom likely before she ever had
a chance to fire a shot.

Автор DoubleMrE ( назад)
Since larger guns have longer range, I think its only common sense that
Yamato could've beaten an Iowa class in a one-on-one fight if it could stay
beyond their range, and within their own. But that would be difficult,
given the Iowa's greater speed. The fact is that either ships guns were
powerful enough to sink the other regardless of both ships armor
protection. I think the most important factor would be the experience of
the officers and crews. Of course, a lucky hit on a magazine by either side
would be doom for the other.

The USN had plans in the works to build an even bigger class than the
Iowas. The 'Montana' class would've equaled the Yamato class in size,
though they would've still been armed with 16" guns (but would've had 12 in
four turrets as opposed to the Iowas with 9 guns in three turrets).

Radar was not that accurate especially a long range, it might have been
able to get the guns within 5 degrees at best. And don't forget Yamato
also had radar, granted not radar controlled gun fire and not as good as
the Americans. Yamato's big advantage is armor, she had a lot of it, in a
gun duel she would have been very hard to sink even for the Iowa. Iowa's
armor on the other hand was not sufficient to match up against Yamato. 

Автор Ammo Alamo ( назад)
A lot of the Iowa/Yamato comparison depends on when it supposedly takes
place - when the Iowas are first at sea with inexperienced crew, facing
experienced Yamato crews, or during 1944 when things are going badly for
Japan and the Iowas have some experience, or near war's end when the Yamato
has to be sent out with a one-way load of fuel, partly because that is all
the available fuel and partly to make sure the Yamato captain did not turn
tail at the point of action.

There was never a point in WW II where the conditions were right: Yamato in
battle-ready condition, an Iowa battleship in equivalent battle-ready
condition, both ships within a few hundred miles of each other and equally
supported or not supported by land and carrier air. So never would there
have been any heroic Yamato/Iowa face-off to see who would win or lose .
Nor was there any chance of using the battleship power alone to decide the
ships' fates. At no time would a one-on-one confrontation have
been acceptable to either force, except perhaps as a face-saving attempt
late in the war by the Japanese.

So Yamato vs. Iowa would not have happened, except in the fervid
imaginations of armchair warriors with an axe to grind (a virtual axe) and
of course a favored ship.

I would say, if a virtual Yamato/Iowa battle were to occur, then Yamato
wins if:
A. she surprises Iowa at night and has her usual surround of cruisers and
destroyers firing the incredibly effective Long Lance torpedoes, and
B. the Iowa is encumbered by a support force comprised of the usual US Navy
early-war ignoramus captains and admirals with no sense of a battle plan,
no understanding of how to react to an attack, and no willingness to
quickly get into the Iowa's strength: battle joined from certain
advantageous distances, using spotting aircraft, and employing
the destroyer screen to best advantage instead of letting them foul the
radar and get in the way of the sight lines of the battle ships.

Iowa wins if:
A. Battle is joined near daylight and continues into daylight, reducing the
Japanese extensive training and experience in night fighting, and allowing
US radar to be employed to full advantage as a range finding and
director-control device, and
B. US forces maintain clear communication so that the US Navy battle ships
can get into fighting distance quickly, and get clear lines of fire, and
C. Destroyer and cruiser forces attack with guns and torpedoes but work
under the direction of the battle leader and stay clear of the battle ship
guns, and
D. US Navy spotter planes accurately report fall of shot, and
E. All other US aircraft keep radio traffic to a minimum and to a
professional standard, instead of their usual habit of spewing senseless
noise, so much so that airplane radio wavelengths all become clogged with
shouts and hollers and nearly become useless as a modern battle tool.

As for Japanese naval on-the-scene leadership, remember, at Leyte, the Japs
had the day won, but their commander feared more US ships would appear out
of nowhere. Those US Navy ships were still hours away, because the complex
jap attack plan had for once worked perfectly to draw Halsey's main forces
far away from the main thrust of the Japanese attack.

So for fear of potential defeat, the Japanese leader at Leyte Gulf did a
180 degree retreat, despite winning the fight on every level. The Jap
retreat was gratefully received by the captains and crew of several damaged
and sinking US Navy destroyers and escort carriers. The US Navy forces had
bravely and fiercely attacked against unwinnable odds, and won the day only
by throwing their ships onto the shells and torpedoes of the attacking Jap
forces until the Japanese retreated for no good reason at all, despite
having way more firepower and armor than the US navy force arrayed against

There would never have been a 1:1 Iowa/Yamato face off, because that's not
the way the US Navy allowed its battleships to work; they were essentially
big shore bombardment platforms, equally useful for their twenty 5"/38
anti-aircraft cannon firing the top-secret proximity fused shells,
plus their too-many-too-count 40mm Bofors and 20mm Oerlikons, many of which
were director controlled.

The Jap Long Lance torpedoes were fearsome weapon systems, much more
effective than the US counterparts, so much more effective that for some
months the US Navy really did not have a torpedo worth the name. If the
Yamato battle group got within torpedo range of an Iowa battle group it
would be hard to see how the Iowa group could respond in kind at all, much
less stay afloat for long.

As for the alleged US Navy's radar advantage, it is just so much hot air.
When properly trained and fully equipped, the Japanese naval night fighting
equipment was fully the equal of US Navy radar at short and medium ranges
as shown by actual battle data during the fights around Guadalcanal (no
long range data is available for comparison). The Japanese officers and
sailors, at least the fully trained crews available near the beginning of
the war, were better than their US Navy counterparts in training and
in proper battle responses. Witness the November 14 night action near Savo
Island where a modern US Battleship was effectively taken out of the fight
by Jap cruisers and destroyers alone, with a lot of help from a lone
US ill-trained electrician officer who screwed up the battleship's breaker
system to the point he nearly got his own ship sunk.
