The Yamamoto was the worlds largest battle ship, and sunk during the last week of the Pacific War in 1945 with all 4500 hands lost.

The "YAMATO" was the name of the ship. "YAMAMOTO" was the name of a Japanese admiral.

The Battleship Yamato was over-rated. Her guns were fired only ONCE in WWII, she's only famous for hauling Admiral Yamamoto around for a while, wandering back and forth across the ocean, avoiding battle. The one and only time her guns were fired was in support of the Phillipine invasion, at land targets. When she tried to fight a real battle, she was quickly sunk by an American Submarine. So much for the "Invincible Imperial Japanese Navy."
