The Yamato was a monster and shouldn't be left out of any discussion about the most amazing Battleships of all time. It had its flaws, but its the only Battleship that stood a decent chance in a one to one fight with one of the Iowa Class Battleships.
The HMS Dreadnaught, CSS Virginia (Merimack) also deserve significant praise.
