    Countering a Powerful Ship

    Usually,when you can't wipe out a megaship you turn to air superiority,but how many people have considered about building a ship larger and more powerful than those of the enemy.

    but then you risk that the enemy also builds a ship, larger and more powerfuller then yours. where will that end?

    Someone is going to economically hit the wall sooner or later.

    Also really outsized ships start to suffer practical problems. Ie lack of ship yards that can handle them and suffiently deep achorage.

    Orwell had a very distinct outlook; he was a master of allegories. His "Animal Farm" was as much a history of the Russian Revolution as it was a farm animal story.

    I guess you have to find your icons somewhere. I'm not sure why the Japanese would want to make a movie about the Yamato. It would have to be considered a bigger failure than the Bismarck which at least sunk one enemy ship before being sunk herself. I'm not sure but IIRC the Yamato didn't sink any ships or accomplish anything except (fortunately) squandering the limited Japanese resources. Same goes for the Musashi and the Shinano (sunk on it's first cruise while still unfinished).
