The Musashi Battleship is the second warship of Yamato class battleship built by the Japanese Imperial Navy during the Second World War. It is one of the largest warships in human history.
On October 24, 1944, the Musashi was sunk by an American plane on the coast of Sibu, Philippines.
In October 1934, the Japanese Naval Command Department formally assigned the design task of the new warship to the naval ship administration headquarters. It is required to equip more than 8 main guns of 460 mm caliber, 12 auxiliary guns of 155 mm caliber (four in three), or 8 auxiliary guns of 200 mm caliber (four in two), with a maximum speed of more than 30 knots. The ship's defense armor can withstand the distance of 20000-35000 meters of its main guns Strike.
The overall design of the new ship is in the charge of the fourth assistant Fukuda Qier of the ship administration headquarters, and the technical guidance is in the charge of the general of pinghezhan shipbuilding. From March 10, 1935 to July 20, 1936, 23 design schemes (a-140-a-140f5) have been put forward successively.
On March 29, 1938, the construction of Musashi was started, and on November 1, 1940, it was launched. In the process of construction, we also learned the experience of Daiwa in the process of construction, and the equipment and so on have been greatly improved. But unlike the Yamato built in the dock, the Musashi built on the slipway has to go through a step of launching "from the slipway to the sea". In order to reduce the weight, it is necessary to install the armor in the main defense areas such as the shipboard after launching. Due to the outbreak of the "Great East Asia war", the construction of the Musashi, which was scheduled to be completed in December 1942, was accelerated to be completed on August 5, 1942. In 1905, the Japanese Navy ship naming method stipulated that battleships should be named after the ancient country name ("country" is the local administrative unit of ancient Japan).
Musashi is a ship named after the Musashi state in Hokkaido. Its history can be traced back to the 1st century A.D.where Tokyo is located. To name two "super warships" after the Maharaja state where the ancient capital of Nara is located and the Musashi state where the modern capital of Tokyo is located is undoubtedly of great expectation.
The main gun is a 94 type 45 times diameter 460 mm naval gun, with three main turrets, two triple turrets on the front deck and one triple turret on the rear deck.At that time, the Japanese Navy kept the caliber of the main gun secret. It was called the 94 type 400 mm gun, which was 45 times the length of the gun. In fact, it was 460 mm. The weight of the gun body is 165 tons, and the total weight of three guns in one turret is 1720 tons. In addition to the weight of the turret armor (790 tons) and ammunition, the total weight of the turning part of a single turret is 2774 tons, which is equivalent to the displacement of the Japanese Navy's autumn moon class destroyer. Each shell weighs 1.5 tons.
The rear part of the turret is equipped with a 93 type 15m baseline rangefinder (equipped with an electric compass, which can keep stable during navigation), and the front of both sides of the turret and the front of the top are equipped with periscope type sight glasses. The pitching angle of the turret is + 45 degrees, - 5 degrees. When the cannon is loaded with shells, it is fixed at + 3 degrees. The pitching speed is 8 degrees per second. The turret rotates for 3 minutes a week. The firing speed is 2 minutes, three simultaneous firing, 1.8 rounds / minute; the shell base is 100 rounds per gun, each shell weighs 1.5 tons, and each shell has a charge of 330 kg. The hoisting speed is 6 seconds per shot, and the loading is mechanized.
The naval gun Department of Wu naval factory adopts the new gun self tightening technology. The strength of the gun barrel is enhanced by internal pressure, and the barrel life is up to 200-250 rounds.
This is an improvisation of my weekends,I made use of my main body of "The Battleship Yamato",the part count has been turned friendly,and now you can fire its guns and fly its aircrafts.
Way to play:
Recommend High Quality Water Physics
Throttle when it sit down over the red water line.
Space to fire the Assistant&Main guns,if you want to fire them one by one, you can adjust the sequence of the bombs.
Space to launch the two seaplanes(I think it will be an exciting thing when you try this).
Thanks for playing&upvote!
