One thing to note. The show's General Director, Yutaka Izubuchi, was involved with the mechanical art production on Yamato III. He designed the Space Battleship Arizona, which was specifically an American built ship in the series. It looks like a cross between Yamato and Andromeda in style and has more guns than both.
For those interested...the Arizona (appears to have main gun armament of Andromeda, but AA armament of Yamato)

There were several other vessels of international origin from Yamato III.

There's the Bismarck (from Germany) - which oddly appears to have no weapons capabilities at all, save for a hand-full of forward-mounted torpedo launchers:

...And the Prince of Wales (from the UK) - no AA, but 4 main guns, oriented differently:
I may appear unoccupied to you, but at the molecular level, I'm really quite busy.
