I guess we can compare the Maus to the Yamato, right? 🙂 Or more likely to the Super Yamato, since it was never produced. But this ship is outstanding indeed. A lot bigger than every possible ship that was ever built. So it is like some sort of Japanese Ratte.
Kaneda’s 500,000 ton Super Battleship
Draft: god knows
Weight: about 500,000 tonnes
Speed: 42 knots
Powerplant: not known, but is said to have 6 shafts for propulsion
50 x 2 406mm (16 in.) main guns
100 x 1 14cm secondary guns
100 x 1 10cm secondary guns
50 x 2 61cm above water torpedo tubes
This ship should be made into some kind of a Co-Op boss or as an 1st April special mode, I guess.
Vice Admiral Hidetaro Kaneda came up with this concept in around 1912 when he was a Commander (not a shipbuilder). Since Japan had limited funds and resources to build many ships, he suggested building one giant ship instead. He came up with this size after numerous calculations to stay level in Pacific Ocean, but of course Japan (or any other country) did not have the technology to build it, so it was scrapped.
