Good article Shinano

It is indeed ironic (and fitting) that this is the first MILHIST Topic Nom (though Belhalla has 4 on top of that) to follow after the legendary Iowa-class battleships—the two mightiest classes of warship to have ever existed who ironically, due primarily to logistics and fuel consumption, never met one another in combat. Having worked on this general topic for the last two months, I have finally brought all four of the articles within the project's scope to GA-Status (two others are also A-Class with MILHIST). All articles are GA or higher, and as such I believe that this topic qualifies for GT-Status. Also, since this is my first time doing a GT nom, I apologize in advance if I have goofed in any way.

  • Support. Meets the GTC criteria. (Full disclosure: I performed the GA review for Japanese aircraft carrier Shinano, and participated in the A-Class review for Japanese battleship Yamato.) — Bellhalla (talk) 05:21, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Support - and I guess the separate but related class Super Yamato class battleship could be a possible later addition? rst20xx (talk) 12:03, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
    • Possibly, but I doubt it. The Super Yamato class wasn't really related outside of the name and that it was going to be the next class of battleship after the Yamato class. —Ed 17 (Talk / Contribs) 16:11, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Support - Bring on the competition! :) In all seriousness though, everything checks out. Well done! — Preceding unsigned comment added by TomStar81 (talkcontribs)
  • Support - good work Cam, this meets all the criteria. (disclosure: I helped write part of Yamato-class battleship, and reviewed Yamato for GA.) —Ed 17 (Talk / Contribs) 16:11, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support. Great work by Cam. Of course a never-ending debate goes on between battleship otaku as to what would have happend if the Yamato battleships had met the Iowa battleships in battle, which almost occurred at Leyte Gulf. I'm sure the result would have been fun for everyone except, of course, the sailors involved. Cla68 (talk) 02:50, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
