    The moment I saw those 16s fire I instantly got reminded we used to fight like this. Now we have moronic LASERS.

  4. Erich Von Manstein says:

    Whos the idiot speaking that said "the ship moves sidways in the water when firing broadsides"? Hes a fucking lush. No the fuck it doesnt move. It wouldnt be a good gun platform if your moving all around like that. Also its been checked and tested and that is false.

  5. Helium Road says:

    That little buzzing sound that you hear passing quickly is one of the ship's radars sweeping past the video camera.

    USS Washington and USS South Dakota dueled the IJN Kiroshima this gives an idea what the battle looked like as the two American battleships had the same armament.

    Multiply this times a few hundred, and you've the Iwo Jima beach landing.

  18. Galva Thunder says:

    you can view this from one of the battleships, just search sink ex 89

    If the government spent as much money on repairing the Iowa Class battleships and getting them back in active service condition as it does on building new, weaker and more fragile ships and manning them we wouldn't need as many ships. No country or continent in the world has anything that could come close to the firepower and armor as a Battleship has. Even when countries like Germany, Great Britain, Japan had battleships of their own, they couldn't match the power or strength of an American Battleship. Ask Japan what happened when they went against Fast Carrier Task Force in WW2 and the Great Mariana Turkey Shoot. 

  20. jake stone says:

    Can someone please tell me if "Lucky A' is there? i can't see the bow numbers

  21. Robert Norman Cloud says:

    Nothing like a few battleships (and heavy cruisers) to "soften" up a hostile beach before landing troops on said beach.
