Thinking Out Loud Again

July 10, 2001

I realized something while I was watching those StarBlazers reruns on They use old pre-World War II naval battle doctrine! The most awesome ship in the fleet, the Argo (née Yamato) is a battleship. Also, the enemy ships are battleships. To fight they actually turn broadside to each other (as in ocean-going ships, to bring as many guns to bear on the enemy as possible) and let loose.

Just found it interesting.
