snotvod;3362980Cool, i didn't know the main guns could fire flak rounds too.
Ya -- the "San Shiki" (beehive) Model 13 fired 3,000 (2,998) lbs shells filled with 900 incendiary rubber thermite tubes and 600 steel stays, on a time fuze that set the shell off in a 20 degree forward angle. According to a site I found, "Instantly after detonating, the shell itself was destroyed by a bursting charge, increasing the quantity of steel splinters. The incendiary tubes ignited about half a second later and burned for five seconds at 3000 degrees C, producing a flame about 16ft (m) long."
The beehive was a failure because it tore hell out of the 18" main guns' rifling and didn't do much against attacking aircraft; depending on your source, it was either intended as a last-ditch weapon or just badly designed. http://www.ww2guide.com/flak.shtml
Also see 105mm US "beehive" artillery rounds.
Guenter, the movie only in Japanese? I trust you'll translate the script for us and leave it on the 130 forums :). Anybody seen the German movie about stalingrad? a fairly recent big budget movie about Stalingrad, heard it was good.
Yeah, pretty good and a real bummer.
As for the Yamato flick, it just occurs to me that instead of the stupid beehive rounds, they should have just fired off the Wave Motion Gun
Follow-up: Just saw that a film called "letters from Iwo Jima" is coming out in 2007, that tells the story of the battle from the Japanese side.
