In August 1940, Japanese battleship YAMATO was finally launched at water
from Kure naval yard's dry dock. Work on the YAMATO project began with the
development and modernization such as the huge armament 46cm turret, it was in
1934. This project was in a top secret for a while because the YAMATO had to
be a final hope for Japanese naval at that time. Most of main countries which
had naval were tying to develop the plan enforcing naval because the Washington

its size, weight, and armaments were supposed to be expired in those days.
