Yamato's fire control system

Postby Christian VII. » Thu Sep 03, 2015 8:29 pm

Is there any in depth information on Yamato's fire control system, or was it all lost at wars end when the Japanese disposed of her plans? If so how much is actually known about her fire control system, and is there a chance she was more capable than believed?

Campbell gives a good description in Naval Weapons of WW2, as does Friedman in Naval Firepower. You might also want to check out

Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
They stood and Earth's foundations stay;
What God abandoned these defended;
And saved the sum of things for pay.
