Good point about Missouri. Both Iowa and New Jersey saw more combat than Missouri which was late to the dance and didn't do much more than sail into Tokyo Bay for a party.

On Yamato, other than a miserable performance at Leyte and getting torpedoed to put her in the shop for a while by a US sub, she mostly sat at anchor in Truk or Kure as her fuel consumption and lack of HE ammunition made her unsuitable for troop support missions. I believe I've read that destroyers sailors referred to her as the "Yamato Palace" in homage to her inertia.
