Japanese Battleship Yamato, ablaze from stem to stern, with bombs blasting her forward turret, during the furious 3-day engagement in the Philippines, end of Oct. 1944. Yamato and her sister ship, Musashi, were the heaviest and most powerfully armed battleships ever constructed, armed with nine 46 cm ( 18.1 inch) 45 Caliber Type 94 main guns. Yamato was sunk in April 1945 by American bombers, with loss of most of her crew.

This is the ghost fleet of mothballed ships in Suisun Bay off San Diego, California. Some of the ships have been anchored here since the 1950s and include a battleship and an amphibious landing ship. Many, if most, of the ships will never be re-activated but are too expensive to break up. Some will become museum ships, such as the battleship USS Iowa, and some will be sold other countries to become part of their navies. Some will simply sink to the bottom of the bay.

16 in South Dakota class battleship USS Indiana, January 1944.  With their single funnels they were shorter but better protected than the preceding 'North Carolina' class, and similarly complied with 35000 ton Washington Treaty limits - unlike the succeeding and significantly larger 'Iowa' class.
