Probably. They made the Tirpitz for FB. Why not?

There were indications several months before Pacific Fighters that one was in development and 1C Maddox already have another version of it so there is a high probability that somewhere along the line its included

Let me put it this way:

It would be a crime to make a Pacific theater game and not include that Bad boy!

IF you say "Yamato" you say "Mushashi"!

And don't forget their third sister who was transfered into a aircraft-carrier!

There were a couple of battleship/carrier hybrids made. Battleship converted before finished due to carrier loses. I saw a pic somewhere of one that looked like they added the flightdeck above the main guns. I don't know if the mains could actually be used or not. Wasn't one of the probs with Yamato not being able to depress the AA guns down far enough and it created a "dead space" once the plane got close enough?

Massive air attack on the Yamato on April 7, 1945 during Operation "Ten Go". Details are varied, but the typical quote is "10 torpedoes - mostly on the port side - and numerous bomb hits".

Sister ship Musashi took an even more severe pounding at the Battle of the Sibuyan Sea at Leyte Gulf, October 24, 1944. Estimates were 19 torpedoes and 17 bombs! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

White elephant... maybe. I still wonder what might've been had one of these ships met a US counterpart during the war.

Had the battle of "Bull's Run" not taken place at Leyte Gulf, such an encounter between USS. New Jersey (and friends) and the Yamato would have taken place. Though more heavily armored and with a larger main battery (18.1" vrs. 16") the Iowa's had many advantages, speed and manuverability (33-35 kts vrs 28 or so) better armor design, and far superior fire control (misses donn'a count, unless real close). The details of the 18." rifle were unknown to the US at the time, but the 16" 50 cal. "lightweight" rifle remains the finest weapon of it's type ever produced, with a superb 2700 Lb. armor piercing shell that due to it's high sectional density could penetrate as well or better than the heavier Japanese shell. The Mk. 38 fire control system, using sophisticated analog computers, radar and good optics, was like it's counterpart the mark 37 (for the 5"38cal), the best in the world.

It would have been an interesting contest, with no certain outcome as luck always plays an important part in war at sea. What is certain, had Yamato been slowed down by any serious hits, she would have not, as with Mushashi, survived the aircraft onslaught the next AM.

I believe you are referring to the battleships Ise and Hyuga which were converted to hybirds. A third of thier main armaments were removed. They could only carry 22 planes, mostly Judys and Pauls. I don't think they could recover planes either. The planes either had to land on regular carriers or on land. Ise was sunk on 28 July 1945 by air attack. Hyuga was damaged by air attack on 24 July 1945 and subsequently ran aground.

Let me add, It would be a crime, if by Ubi's decision we will not have the possibility to recreate most of the various locations and planesets around PTO and will be left with torso of PTO.

(Should I talk once again about Aleutian Islands,pre-war china etc,etc?)

Maaaaaan, now I am a whinner!

Thank you unseen84 http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif I didn't think I was crazy (but most others do). It's always nice to learn something new.
