Description

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.

Declassified Stats:

•Multiple submerged torpedo launchers and anti torpedo APS.
•Composite Metal Foam armoring of various thicknesses and areas.
•9x 18in Kraken Electromagnetic Hypersonic Ram Cannons.
•12x Katana 3in Electromagnetic Guns
•6x Nagamaki 5in Electromagnetic Guns
•Weapons System points can be exchanged with various Federation CIWS systems.

    Ohh alternative history makes sense now thanks for explaining @RocCrafter101

    @GeneralOliverVonBismarck Well, Russia invaded Japan before the US. And Japan never launched Ten-go. I’ll probably explain more later.

    How does one refit a ship that is sitting on the bottom of the ocean @RocCrafter101

    @RocCrafter101 lol, interesting.

    @KerlonceauxIndustries Its just two length xml edited pistons, a rotator, and a helicopter. Set all on landing gear.
    It has problems though, like smashing into the ship and getting stuck lol

    How did you do the helicopter anyway. I must know.

    Though this ship does look nice. Would be a pity if I had to sink her.

    @RocCrafter101 Thats what I thought. But a fusion or even a matter/antimatter reactor or two should provide enough energy.

    @KerlonceauxIndustries Yeah, it would probably need an extremely powerful energy source too. But a weapon like that is a really too much.

    @RocCrafter101 Yeah. I was thinking about a moon-based long-range !aser capable of hitting Earth, but I think thats a bit over-the-top.

    @KerlonceauxIndustries
    Yeah, we don't really expect this level of an all out attack on the vessel. But it would be quite hard but not impossible by these strikes. Lasers travel faster than any projectile which by the time our two nations meet in era we would have powerful and numerous enough of them onboard to identify, target and destroy the reentry vehicles before impact with the Aegis combat system.

    @RocCrafter101 The V.L.O.W.A. (Very Large Orbital Weapons Array) is probably the most powerful weapon that exists. In fact, it requires 15 separate keys and 16 completely different authorization codes from the top personnel at KI to even arm. That doesnt include having to have a precise target as well as another 7 authorization codes and 6 keys. And the codes cant be shared with other people.

    @RocCrafter101 Good luck intercepting kinetic missiles from over 30 orbital weapons and surveillance platforms, 5 of which are more or less weaponized space station in a lunar orbit. And each platform carries at least 15 projectiles.

    -Well, railguns can intercept them with matched velocity and high fire rate, hypervelocity shrapnel can shred the projectiles in reentry and cause them to burn up.
    -But this vessel is part of the Federation in the "International Council" RP server. Which prohibits Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical weapons along with weapons in orbit. I don't choose to go to RP servers which employ these kind of weapons as they usually get messy.
    -Along with how this vessel operates in 2025. If it was in later stages, I would be using high power LaWS ([La]ser [W]eapons [S]ystems) to intercept such projectiles.

    @RocCrafter101 Or I should put her up against my orbital hypervelocity kinetc projectiles.

    @KerlonceauxIndustries Not sure, haven’t seen it. But this vessel was designed for air defense. Railguns accelerate projectiles to hypervelocity speeds releasing shrapnel from proximity fuses that are near impossible to dodge by aircraft without fullstop split second capability at long distance. Laser Weapons systems in place of some CIWS guns would easily deal with incoming missiles at Hypersonic levels of speed. Along with the ability to pack 36 medium range SAMs into one VLS cell as each cell can fit either 1 S-Large Missile (ASBM, IRBM), 4 Large Missiles (Zircon X, HSLAM, Sarin II), 12 Medium Missiles (Unknown), or 36 Small Missiles (Whirlwind, Hurricane). Composite metal foam armor is able to withstand heavy hitting armor piercing rounds, while spaced armor around the belt, main batteries, and deck plating stops HEAT rounds. With the lightening of the armor, the ship is much faster than it used to be and can perform maneuvers decently.

    Now how will she handle against the massive Toulouse-class carrier?

    This is Jap bias—ok, actually this is pretty cool, I’m not gonna lie. I like how u used CMF armor for less weight but more protection.

    @ErvenDynamics They technically are all CIWS guns. They just carry the shape of WW2 AA guns to make it look like Yamato. They have a radar system on them and can independently target enemy aircraft and missile systems.
