I wonder how powerful a squadron consisting of the Bismarck, Tirpitz, Scharnhorst, Gniesenau, Graf Spee, Admiral Scheer, and Prinz Eugen would be. If they were all firing their guns on the same target, then that target is going to be reduced to nothing but a blazing wreck.

How they usually say? 'History doesn't know subjunctive mood'. Battles between entire fleets became a thing of the past after aviation and submarines appeared... But yes, it would has been big problems for Anglo-saxons, if Kriegsmarine had gather those ships together.

In your professional opinion, if you'd pit the KMS Bismarck, USS Missouri and IJN Yamato against each other, who would win? I'd say it sure wouldn't be the Bismarck.

It is too... theoretical question, you know. Like 'Who is stronger? An elephant or a whale?" one.

But if I only had a choice, I would place a bet on Missouri. She was built later, she had artillery radar and ultimate targeting system. So Yamato could withstand the day fight because of her 460-mm main guns, but during the night her chances seem to be low. Bismarck seems to have almost no chances because of lesser main artillery caliber. She should open fire much way later than her imaginary adversaries.
