• How would a battle similar to the scale of Jutland between the  U.S Navy and the IJN played out in the prewar years?

    Wow. Never heard of that. Is amazing both nations had plans like that!
    I would have said Japan, as their surface fleet was 70% of the US one and with no other commitments (the Atlantic and a European coast).
    Then they changed things by craftily tipping things in their favour with a sneak attack that should have been more successful.
    Mistake seems to be in not commerce raiding and that cost them.
    Is funny. Thank you for bringing it up.
    I think the Japanese had the invention and guile to get away with it, with a great Admiral to see things through in Yamamoto.
    But then they lost the will in reality.
    Is too hard to choose a victor.
    Except the US did win.

    Plan Orange was a U.S plan to defeat the Japanese in a large Jutland type battle in between the war years.
