Super Battleships - weighing over 65,000 and/or having armament of 16" or bigger guns.
Whats your take - Useful or Useless?

I personally think they wouldn't be useful because they would be VERY vulnerable to air-power - eg. Yamato & Musashi and also the planned Montana class - which were scrapped in favor of the Essex class.

I think not because in WW2 - where the concept of super battleships was becoming reality -
Air Power was really starting to take hold. And those large, bulky, slow moving ships would provide ideal targets for torpedo and dive bombers.
Granted that they would have had heck of a lot of AAA, but still.... - (you see my point?)

Air power for the win!

I like destroyers, fast, light, fair armament, and cheap. I like the "tin cans" form WWII most. Carriers are cool but without aircraft they are nothing but flat boats. Battleships are obsolete but still epic. Subs are just incredible, stealthy, powerful, and big.

Super battleships are undeniably cool but in the age of airpower and now cruise missiles, they would be sitting ducks. Small, stealthy, and cruise missile equipped seems to be the ruling force for the future.
