"That would be the Yamato and the Musashi. They mounted the largest guns ever put on battleships, and were the largest 2 battleships ever built."
LH - I had trouble finding this again. But as I understand it, the size of the projectiles these ships fired, combined with the ballistics and the way air works on an object traveling through the atmosphere, these ships were able to shell American battle ships from a distance so great that the Americans couldn't reach them to fire back.
Is that correct?
