IJN Musashi as lost during the opening engagements of the Battle of Leyte Gulf. After sustaining 19 torpedo hits and 17 bomb hits during American air attacks. She sank bow first after being abandoned with 1023 going down with her.
It is cruel irony that the biggest and most expensive battleships ever constructed were sent to the bottom without ever firing on a single enemy ship. I wonder how many aircraft carriers or planes could have been built with all the resources that went into them. =/
