Lightwave 8.3 design of the never built WWII US Navy super battleship USS Montana. All gun turrets are separate layers for easier animating. 16in guns are layered separate as well. This is an introductory offer as the model does not yet have anti-aircraft guns, seaplane launch/recovery equioment and other details.
In WWII the Imperial Japaneese battleship Yamato was the biggest warship on the high seas. The U.S. response was a proposed 'super battleship' with 4 main gun turrets mounting 16in naval guns. The extra 3 guns on the fourth turret effectively allowed the U.S. Navy to put more steel shot against the Yamato than the Yamato could against the Montana, giving the Americans an edge should the IJN Yamato come out of Tokyo Bay looking for a fight. The Montana was never built since 2 of the Iowa class battleships were deemed more than a match for the Japaneese warship.
