The tier 10 behemoth battleship Yamato sits a top of the Japanese battleship line in World of Warships. The Yamato currently has one the best overall armor schemes in World of Warships when it comes sheer thickness and also with effective armor taken into account. This World of Warships Yamato ar.. Yamato (大和) was the lead ship of her class of battleships built for the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) shortly before World War II.She and her sister ship, Musashi, were the heaviest and most powerfully armed battleships ever constructed, displacing 72,800 tonnes at full load and armed with nine 46 cm (18.1 in) Type 94 main guns, which were the largest guns ever mounted on a warship The thickness of armor was the largest ship battleship Yamato: 64 cm. Are no longer built armored ships (the 'last to be built was the HMS Vanguard, and the last to be made in disarmament were the battleships USS Yowa class) because the damage the missiles though
And if you're talking about the armor outline -- that gives the outline of the citadel, along with the armor thickness for the particular parts. PS Here are some schematics of various frames, to help you visualize the citadel concept a bit better The thickness of armor was the largest ship battleship Yamato: 64 cm. With the rethinking of design, naval architects had to examine every system and function of a warship, and determine the functions and systems that were critical. For ships which rely on fire damage IFHE thus can be a poor choice even if significant armor thresholds are passed The Yamato-class ships were battleships of the Imperial Japanese Navy constructed and operated during World War II. They had some serious armor. But this hole is the result of ballistic testing that was done at the Naval Proving Ground in Dahlgreen showing what a serious damage 16″ shells can do The question invites many interpretations. Are we talking belt armour thickness or other protection methods, such as torpedo bulges? If belt armour, probably the best protected were the Yamato class, with up to 16.5 belt armour. The Iowa Class, i..
All or nothing is a method of naval warship armour, best known for its employment on dreadnought battleships.The concept involves heavily armoring the areas most important to a ship while the rest of the ship receives significantly less armor. The all or nothing concept avoided light or moderate thicknesses of armor: armor was used in the greatest practicable thickness or not at all, thereby. . As an example, the SOUTH DAKOTA Class battleship ALABAMA had solid 19 Class B armor turret faces, while the others had 18-19.5 (roughly) turret faces, in some cases made up of a thin back plate laminated (bolted flush with no gap anywhere) to a thick front plate
Battleships having more armor (weight wise) than Yamato isn't too surprising, Yamato was surprisingly efficient in terms of armor layout, she was relatively 'wide' compared to something like a Montana, meaning more displacement (ie, more armor) for a given length (bulkheads don't weigh too much compared to belts) for a given thickness of armor Among the battleships he compares are Yamato and Iowa, based on five criteria: guns, armor, underwater protection, fire control and tactical factors such as speed and damage control. It. Homogeneous armour was typically used for deck armour, which is subject to more high-obliquity impacts and, on some warships such as Yamato class and Iowa class battleships, for lower belt armour below the waterline to protect against shells that land short and dive underwater Maximum armor thickness penetrated IFHE beneficial against (non-exhaustive) Without IFHE With IFHE Tier 8 - 10 152 mm 180 mm Japanese 100 mm : Most light cruisers Some Japanese destroyers/secondaries: 30 mm : 32 mm : Tier 8 - 10 battleship bow/stern, tier 8 - 10 British and French battleships' casemate plating, Slava deck platin
This makes perfect sense to me, as Yamato also had the distinction of carrying the only armor plates which were completely impervious to any battleship weapon ever mounted afloat -- her 660mm turret faceplates Yamato on trials in 1941. Yamato was ordered in March 1937, laid down 4 November 1937, launched 8 August 1940, and commissioned 16 December 1941. She underwent training exercises until 27 May 1942, when the vessel was deemed operable by Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto. Joining the 1st Battleship Division, Yamato served as the flagship of the Japanese Combined Fleet during the Battle of Midway in.
Test of 26 (66cm) Class A Main Armament Turret Face (Port) Plate, originally for IJN SHINANO, the third Japanese YAMATO-Class super-battleship (converted into an aircraft carrier, instead, and sunk on its way to final fitting out yard by a U.S. submarine), which made up far left side of turret face looking from inside turret out of gun port, with D-shaped cutout making up about half of. Among the battleships he compares are Yamato and Iowa, based on five criteria: guns, armor, underwater protection, fire control and tactical factors such as speed and damage control
Armour. Yamato was fitted with armour plating of varying thickness, measuring between eight and twenty-two inches. Specifications. Source: Weapons of World War II by Alexander Lüdeke - Pages 290-291. Displacement: 69,646 tons Length: 864 ft 6 in Beam: 127 ft 5 in Draft: 35 ft 5 in Maximum armor: 16.1 in (sides), 9.8 in (deck Yamato is probably one of the most well known ships of the Second World War however most articles focus on the ship as completed and it's somewhat boring but in the end still dramatic career. I would like to focus on the development side (A-140 onwards) and how the final design (A-140F6) was reached with a brief look at subsequent planning for the improved-Yamato designs (A-150) World War II: Why Japan's Biggest Battleship Committed Epic Suicide. The story of the Yamato is a warning to all armed forces that the march of war technology is merciless and unsentimental Of the seven battleships Parshall analyzed, Yamato and Iowa had the best underwater armor. However, Yamato had poor seams between her upper and lower armor belts, which allowed water to enter when. Yamato can overmatch the bow armor, and if that battleship is almost directly bow on that is over a 50% increase in armor thickness over North Carolina. Yamato has a main armor belt that essentially identical to Montana in terms of thickness, and it also shares the much weaker lower armor belt that is completely underwater
One of the largest battleships ever built, Yamato entered service with the Imperial Japanese Navy in December 1941. The battleship and its sister, Musashi, were the only battleships ever constructed with 18.1 guns.Though incredibly powerful, Yamato suffered from a relatively low top speed as its engines were underpowered.Taking part in several campaigns during World War II, the battleship was. IJN Yamato magazine explosion. In addition to belt armor, which protects battleships from direct fire, If the armor thickness is less than 1/14.3 of shell's caliber, a ricochet does not occur regardless of armor encounter angle. See this table for examples
The particular piece of armor tested was the 26-inch frontal armor for one of the Shinano's 18-inch turrets. This was the thickest armor ever made for a warship and it was speculated that the Yamato's armor was impervious to the 16-inch shells of American battleships. The U.S. Navy shot it point blank with a 16-inch shell YAMATO battleships (1941-1942) Yamato 1941. Yamato 1941. Yamato 1945. Name: No: Yard No: Builder: The armour protection was designed to providing of an immune zone under 457mm shells in a band from 20000 to 30000 m and ability to maintain 1000kg air bomb Yamato: thickness of beam 155mm barbettes was increased to 103mm. + 4 x 3 - 25/60. Yamato on trials in 1941. Yamato was ordered in March 1937, laid down 4 November 1937, launched 8 August 1940, and commissioned 16 December 1941.  She underwent training exercises until 27 May 1942, when the vessel was deemed operable by Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto.  Joining the 1st Battleship Division, Yamato served as the flagship of the Japanese Combined Fleet during the Battle of. Mar 29, 2019 - This is 26-inch thick armor salvaged from a Japanese Yamato class battleship which was pierced by a 16-inch armor piercing test shot from a US Navy ship..
Actually the raw thickness of Yamato's belt armor compensates for the much higher quality of the Iowa's armor, edging out the Iowa by a slim amount. The kicker is that the welding was so poor on Yamato and Musashi they probably wouldn't have been able to sustain constant shelling before whole armor plates began breaking off of the ship Casemate belt armor increased from 25 mm to 100 mm. Izmail's casemate armor belt didn't allow her to fully utilise herself as a close range battleship, and changing the thickness of the armor will allow this ship to act more aggressively and effectively at distances that are comfortable for her. Accuracy Changes: Tier III Knyaz Suvorov
The side armour extended between the two transverse armoured bulkheads, which were 300mm forward and 300mm (upper), 270mm (lower) aft. Unusually, these two bulkheads were themselves inclined outwards from bottom to top by 25°. There was a torpedo bulkhead of 100mm thickness Yamato is sturdy, no doubt about that. Her guns don't care much about armor thickness or angling, neither does her armor. As Flamu said in his commentary once: Yamato doesn't give a sh*t. Bow towards enemy, adjust speed, aim, shoot. Only her sides are vulnerable to close range BB shells, and her bow doesn't like torps
battleships). Typical armor bolt used for securing the Class A upper bel to its STS backing plate. One bolt per every 5 square feet BB61-64 Arrangement of protection for torpedo defense and triple bottom systems. (Robert Sumrall) With the exception of its guns, the most awe inspiring aspect of the battleship is the huge amount of armor employed. Calculating actual thickness is pretty easy, only requires some trigonometry! Here are the belt thickness values with 5 degrees increase of shell impact angle: Eg at 0 degrees the shell arrives parallel to the waterline which also shows the true armour thickness if a shot fired at point blank range. At 0° Yamato: 436mm (410mm at 20°
If the thickness of the armor is equal to or greater than the shatter threshold, the shell shatters. On the other hand, if the shatter threshold is strictly greater than the thickness of the armor, it penetrates. Example: Cleveland has a shell diameter of 152 mm. Dividing 152 by 6 gives an HE penetration value of 25.33 mm, which is rounded to. Nagato (長門?), named for Nagato Province, was a dreadnought battleship built for the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) during the 1910s and was the lead ship of her class.She carried supplies for the survivors of the Great Kantō earthquake in 1923. The ship was modernized in 1934-36 with improvements to her armor and machinery and a rebuilt superstructure in the pagoda mast style Rc-controlled Yamato :honoring: Jump to content.

Although saying that, the Yamato's 18.1 inch shells are believed to have been capable of punching through 24 inches of armour; with the Iowa class having a maximum armour thickness of around 19 inches on their gun turrets Musashi(武蔵?), named after an ancient Japanese province,1 was one of two Yamato-class battleshipsN 1 built for the Imperial Japanese Navy, beginning in the late 1930s. The Yamato-class ships were the heaviest and most powerfully armed battleships ever constructed,3 displacing 72,800 long tons (74,000t) fully loaded and armed with nine 46-centimetre (18.1in) main guns. Her secondary armament. Armor protection for the Montana-class included a side belt thickness of 16.1 inches (409mm). Bulkheads would have measured in at 18 inches thick while turret barbettes would have been protected by 21.3 inches of armor. The turrets themselves were to be pressed by 22.5 inches of armor thickness
26-inch thick armor from Japanese Yamato class battleship, pierced by a US Navy 16-inch gun. The armor is on display at the US Navy Museum. This 26″ thick section of turret armor off the Yamato class battleships was found at the Kure Naval Base in Japan after the end of WWII and brought back to [ While previous battleships were more or less armoured with their contemporaries, that all changed with the arrival of the Yamato class. Featuring massive 18.1″ guns, these ships had the armor to match. Yamato and her sister Musashi featured a conning tower 19.7″ (500mm) thick, the strongest fitted to any battleship 26-inch thick armor from Japanese Yamato class battleship, pierced by a US Navy 16-inch gun. The armor is on display at the US Navy Museum. I found this Ballistic Test Report which I believe to be about this specific piece of armor. Ballistic Tests on the IJN Shinano's Turret Face Armor By Nathan Okun Updated 31 August 199
Fully loaded, Yamato displaced about 70,000 tons of water, outweighing even the biggest Allied battleships by more than 20 percent. Her hull was so immense that in the mid-1930s no Japanese. 3 The Soviets made use of very heavy belts throughout the design process, probably due to the stagnation of their heavy armor industry in the interwar years. They were essentially having to equip their ships with WWI-era armor, which did a great deal to drive up size. As it was, the completed design had slightly more tonnage in armor than the Yamato did, although more of it was outside the. In fact, the thickness of their armor protection approaches that of the giant Japanese Yamato class. Soviet industry was not up to fabricating armor plate of the specified thickness, so they resorted to using several smaller thicknesses to make up the total thickness for the belt, barbettes, turret faces and conning tower Belt armor just isn't that heavy compared to decks. I think the ratio is usually 6 or 7 to 1 for a given thickness. @Alex. Pretty much what John said. Battleships are a little bit harder than unarmored ships against nukes, but not nearly enough to compensate for the sheer killing power of nuclear weapons Comparing Montana's deck armor to Yamato's I have found a problem if germany attacked your battleship at Malta with 550 and 1,100lb HE/SAP type bombs In general one plate of a given thickness is more resistant than two laminated plates adding up to that same thickness
In the mid-1930s, the Japanese Navy commissioned a ship called Yamato intended to be the greatest battleship in the world—with more powerful guns, advanced optics, and impenetrable armor The battleship Yamato was the first of what were to have been five Yamato-class battleships, but only three were built. The Yamato was commissioned on December 16, 1941, and the second Yamato-class ship, the Musashi, was commissioned on August 5, 1942

Missouri's steel armor plates were of a superior quality than the Japanese steel armor of that time, making the armor thickness comparisons more favorable for modern US fast battleships (by about. 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.
