Yamato Legendary Japanese Tier X battleship.
The biggest warship of World War II and the world’s largest battleship. Yamato was designed around the idea that an individual ship could have superiority over any battleship of a potential enemy. Her main guns had overwhelming firepower. The ship maintained a very high level of survivability due to reliable armor and robust torpedo protection. Yamato’s AA capabilities were highly efficient due to carrying numerous AA artillery guns.

The pinnacle of all Japanese battleship design philosophy and possibly of the entire world, Yamato gains its place as the one of the most solid battleship at her tier. She has the third largest hit points of any ship in the game at a staggering 97200 next to Großer Kurfürst’s 105800 and Kreml’s 108300 her guns have the second highest citadel hit damage of any round in the game, at 14800 HP per citadel hit. While individual AA mounts are mediocre, the sheer number of AA guns, nearly 150 25mm AA barrels and 24 127mm DP guns, provides a mild deterrent particularly against lower tier carriers. She, along with her sister ship Musashi holds the record for best torpedo protection in game, with a value of 56%, which is rather surprising considering that in real life, they both suffered from weak torpedo protection due to design flaws with the area joining the upper and lower armour belts. In game, Yamato represents the upgraded 1945 variant while Musashi depicts the original version. With a turning radius of 800m and a top speed of 27.2 kts, she is also surprisingly maneuverable despite her large size, though still quite short of her real life maneuverability. However, with a long rudder shift time and extremely slow turret traverse, one must plan all actions in advance, or risk being caught off-guard and unable to react. The guns, while having better accuracy than Conqueror, Montana and Großer Kurfürst, are very unforgiving, with a 30 second reload stock, which can be decreased to just under 27 seconds at the expense of further reducing its abysmal turret traverse by using a piece of equipment. Being one of the biggest ships in the game, Yamato is constantly targeted by Aircraft Carriers, and despite the numerous AA guns, high tier carriers can still get planes through, so it is advised to stay near ships that have solid AA suites such as cruisers for an AA “aegis” to be created. In addition, even though your armor is the most solid in the game you should still try to angle your ship as sometimes shells may have a chance to hit home and deal glaring damage. Keep in mind that her high citadel can easily be hit if the enemy manages to penetrate your armor.

Yamato is by far, the most powerful battleship in the game in a long ranged and defensive position. She may not be the fastest, the stealthiest or the Tier X battleship with the highest RoF, but her armor, gun caliber and health more than makes up for it. Her guns are so massive that they can score citadels on virtually any Tier VIII+ battleship and combined with their immense accuracy, she is a formidable foe. With good aim and some luck, Yamato’s glaring damage can wipe battleships off the sea and in the hands of a skilled player, will dominate the battle and can even control it.



  1. Hello and welcome once again everyone, today replay highlight features the tier 10 IJN battleship Yamato in a really nice game where our featured captain gives a very nice demonstration on how to aim these legendary Yamato guns. I hope you enjoy the game and let me know what you think in the comments and until the next time, keep sailing it like you stole it o7

  2. Are you using push to talk to record?

    • Hi Nick, No I’m not but a mistaken ripple cut on my part may have removed some syllables making it seem like it. My apologies.

    • No biggie, just seemed like it was dead silent and then it’s get some feedback when you talked similar to someone using ptt

  3. last time I was this early, Yamato was still sailing to Okinawa

  4. Yammy is a powerful ship. Currently my favorite Tier 10…but that’s started to get some competition between kreml and Conq.

    • Hi Bigs, I believe that can only be good for the game, having just one ring to rule them all was never a good thing now was it ? -)

  5. In the build section you showed selecting the fighter squadrons consumable, but in the replay he’s using the spotter aircraft. What is the actual build used by Bazinga_Flux?

    The prediction of the stalin beaching was pretty awesome

    If there’s something I’d like to see is a video on how to best aim in the Bismarck. It’s my favourite ship and I’d like to improve playing it more and more. Also the video content is great very enjoyable to watch!

    Also I’m using a tank/stealth build on the Bismarck with the improved aiming upgrade currently.

  8. Nicely done. I really enjoy the constructive critiques you provide of the action. Pointing out how the captain positioned his ship and took advantage of that was particularly interesting for me. “Sailing it like you stole it,” isn’t the phrase that matches with your smooth jazz DJ delivery, but it does encourage having fun.
