Two secondary guns were removed and replaced with anti-aircraft flak guns and Radar.|
|First of the Yamato-class battleships, Yamato.
As the trump card for the Decisive Battle, I was made in utmost secrecy at the Kure Naval Yard.
With the most up-to-date and sophisticated technology concentrated in my body, along with the 2nd ship, Musashi, I will do my best as the centre of the combined fleet!
|Decisive Naval Battle, or Kantai Kessen, was the IJN's strategic doctrine during WWII, in which after a series of operations had weakened the US fleet, battleships would finish the last, and presumably, the strongest part of the fleet.|

|Secretary 3||あのー？ そんなに気になります？ やっぱり副砲がちょっと多いの？||Erm... are you that interested? Well, is it because I have a lot of secondary guns?||2 triple 155 mm turrets were removed later to make space for more anti-aircraft armaments.|

Um... well, my living conditions are noticeably different than the other girls'. ...Is that okay?||Air conditioned quarters, bathhouse, kitchen with refrigeration facility. full course meal for officers with live band playing in the background.

Character[edit | edit source]
Appearance[edit | edit source]
- Depicted as having long brown hair in a ponytail with multiple cherry blossoms in her hair, and often carrying an oriental umbrella with a shaft based on the battleship's distinctive mast.
Personality[edit | edit source]
- Because her historical counterpart had a career mostly based around impressing people, Yamato is often depicted as shy and soft-spoken. She also has a tendency to speak in third person, and in a very polite/honorific manner.
- She's depicted as lacking combat experience due to the real Yamato not having been used extensively in many naval operations during World War II.
- Dislikes being called a Hotel, a reputation she's built due to her lack of use as an actual warship and the commodities the real-life ship contained. However, she's not above calling herself Hotel Yamato.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Her name literally translates to "Great Harmony". Yamato is also the name of ancient Japan, and hence Yamato was seen as a symbol and pride of Japan.
- Was cynically referred to as "Hotel Yamato" due to having facilities unheard of in a warship (e.g. luxurious living quarters; civilians for cooking, hairdressing, and sewing; and even air conditioning) and due to not seeing action until very late into the war.
- Yamato's remodel art features a 'Hirihoukenten (非理法権天)' kneesock (originally a flag). It reflects one of the old philosophies 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 emperors were treated as divine figures in imperial Japan, it means to imply "no men can oppose the (divine) emperor". As a slogan adopted by the Imperial Japanese navy, this flag was hung on Yamato on her final voyage towards 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.
- The flag signifies the following: "The fate of Imperial Japan hangs on this one battle; all hands will exert themselves and do their best."
- Sunk on 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, under the command of Vice-Admiral Seiichi Ito. Aircraft from Intrepid were among those that took part in the attack, and some of her TBM Avengers were said to have scored unconfirmed torpedo hits.
- Her damaged art is based on the historical damage dealt to her during Operation Ten-Go; as the Americans learned from sinking Musashi that it's better to focus torpedo attacks on a single side of the target ship, in order to cause her to capsize. In Yamato's case, that would be on the port (left) side of her.
- Wreck discovered under 1,120 ft of water in the East China Sea, 180 miles Southwest of Kyushu and North of Okinawa, on August 1st, 1985.
- Her first mission was in the Battle of Midway as the flagship of the Japanese Combined Fleet, however, she didn't fire a single shot in that battle, the first time she fired her guns in anger was in 1944, in the Battle off Samar.
