A thread for all my World of Warships releases.
I apologize for the large amount of files, due to workshop size restrictions and the large number of textures per model ,together with multiple models sharing textures, I decided to separate them into multiple addons for organization’s sake.
HIJMS Yamato (1944)
With no further ado:
A prop of the HIJMS Yamato, has it appears in World of Warships.
Fully rigged, use a model tool to tamper with moving parts.
WARNING: You will need the easy bonemerge tool to put the model together. Merge the hull into the guns.

HIJMS Yamato (1944)
Needs no introduction. The largest battleship ever built, featuring the largest guns ever mounted on a warship. The Yamato class battleships were conceived to counter the more numerous American ships by having a single vessel capable of enganging multiple enemy ships at once.
Despite the warships massive power, it’ status as a national symbol alongside it’s massive tactical value meant that the ship was only used for the most pivotal of operations.
Yamato notably participated in the Battle of the Phillipines and Operation Sho-Go during the Battle of Leyte Gulf, before finally meeting her end during Operation Ten-Go, which called for Yamato to run aground in Okinawa, in preparation for defense against allied forces. Allied interceptors arrived, and after a fierce naval battle, Yamato was sunk from the combination of multiple torpedo and bomb hits, a fire spreading and the explosion of the second turret magazine.
Despite all this, the Yamato remained a cultural symbol for Japan in the decades to come, with many seeing the ship’s final mission as a noble, heroic sacrifice in defense of the homeland.
