The Yamashiro is the sister ship to the tier 6 battleship Fuso, as such she shares the same weaknesses as the Fuso when it comes to the hull. The Yamashiro has the same AA and Secondary battery as her lower tier sister, with the biggest difference between the Secondary's being her their increased range. The main difference between the two sisters would be the added protection thanks to the added torpedo belt armor, making her more resilient to torpedoes and HE spam, while her Main Battery is completely different to that of Fuso with it being comprised of 10 406mm guns in two twin turrets on the bow and two triple turrets one midships and on aft of the superstructure. Compared to the rest of tier 7 Yamashiro has the tied best firepower with Ashitaka, however her speed is one of her greatest weaknesses with it only barely surpassing the speed of the American standards by 1.2knots. Her other weakness would be her almost non existent AA, making her very susceptible to Carrier attacks, specifically AP bombers and torpedo bombers, though if torpedoes hit her thick torpedo belt the damage would obviously be minimal (unless they detonate you).

Real ship, known existing guns in the IJN arsenal, historic record of rework proposal done for the IJN... I like it. I'd want this sort of premium before we get any more paper ships in the game. They're already adding Strasbourg (Dunkerque's sister) as a T7 so I think this idea should get more support.
