This is a top and side view of the Yamato. The main feature of the ship is the 18.1 inch main turrets. The turrets have devastating power and reach. The Yamato also had several other weapons, including all the anti-aircraft scattered across the ship and the main turrets. Others guns were 6.1 inch turrets and some more added on throughout the war.
It even got a anime series about in the year 2199, when aliens unleash radioactive meteorite bombs on Earth, then the people secretly build a massive spaceship inside the ruins of the gigantic Yamato, which lies in the former bottom seafloor. Naming it "Space Battleship Yamato" they used blueprints obtained by capsule that yields faster-than-light engine and a new incredibly powerful weapon called the "Wave Motion Gun" to travel across space to the planet Iscandar to retrieve a device that can cleanse the Earth of its radiation damage. This series was a big success that many remakes, movies, and other series were also made. Speaking of movies, this picture is showing a live-action remake of it.
