The sinking of the Yamato marked the end of the era of super battleships as the world’s main naval power. Various countries began to look at alternative ways other than battleships to launch their military operations. The battleship project is considered too expensive in terms of production and maintenance costs.
Nazi Germany also experienced the same thing, changing strategy after losing the battleship Bismarck. Operations to repel Allied merchant ships in the Atlantic were only carried out by U-boats, which were more effective than large-tonnage battleships.
Another idea that shone after the end of the battleship era was the airplane. The development of aircraft technology is considered to be more effective so that aircraft carrier projects are more desirable and must be owned by countries in the world today. Military ships are also designed to be as effective and efficient as possible, not necessarily having large tonnage and cannons like the doctrine of battleships of the World War I and II eras.
