The Yamato is the flagship of the Iridium Federation primarily tasked with fleet defense from aircraft and missiles. Equip with multiple railguns, quadruple missile launchers, weapons system points, and AA guns from 30mm to 45mm, the Yamato provides a nearly impenetrable shield of fire around itself and the fleet. All 4 ships of the class (Yamato, Musashi, Shinano, and Mino) are planned to undergo the refit.
