    Default Battleship...TWISTED.

    WAY twisted. Instead of three alien vessels and a small battle group, its now the combined US, CIS(ex-Soviet Russia) Chinese and UK navies against four of Earth's finest space-going, conventional-hulled warships: the Yamato(latest refit, Wave Motion Gun DISABLED) the Queen Emeraldas, the Arcadia and the Blue Noah. These four ships have a maximum ceiling of two miles above sea level. Our "Strongest Global Navy" gets all its assets, sans nuclear options.

    If Nuclear options are enabled, then the Wave Motion Gun on the Yamato is fixed at the same time and comes into play.

    Can our World's Strongest Navy take down four of the finest vessels ever to leave our planet's atmosphere?

    No real clue as to the Harlock ships' capabilities, but I'd be surprised if anything we had could even scratch them. It'd probably take a little while for them to get every last ship and sub, but I think the space group can wipe EarthNavy out with impunity.

    Strangely, I think we can take them. With incredible losses, that is. The Arcadia by far has the best hull strength feats(IIRC small tectonic movement only caused it to be jammed in a canyon...) so they're likely to be the last bastion. BUT, we aren't talking just about machinery here; we're talking about fighting men. And each and every ship from these nations turned into an asset.

    Which turns this from a surface to surcace-air battle into a scenario where amphibious operations come into play(IIRC even the Blue Noah doesn't have enough guns to island-bust, and its more heavily armed than the Yamato...) So to get rid of all of our boys, they'd need to land troops.
