    The USS Wisconson and USS Iowa are still in Category B reserve.

    The US Congress has mandated by law that the two battleships are to remain in a constant state of 180day war readiness indefinitely.

    So yup, we still have 2.

    In her prime she could do 16 knots, and her 13-inch guns were state of the art 105 years ago.

    Wish I could still find the photographs of the Yamato on the ocean floor. The only good enemy BB is a sunken enemy BB!!!!!!

    Here's what Battleship lovers everywhere would have loved to sink the Yamato or the Musashi with....

    Revelation 16:16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

    I see the 16" being fired, but where are the 5"s? You ever notice how in comparison to the 16", people think the 5" is small, but it's still a kick ass cannon.

    The 5" guns are in twin turrets along the flanks of the ship.

    Three turrets on each side.

    BR theres a launch(boat) on the near midship port side of the BB that points toward a plain to see 5in Turret.

    It's between the TLAM ABL cannisters, and right next to the Harpoon cannisters, amidships.

    Sorry dudes. I still can't see them, and I'm not sure where the TLAM ABL and the Harpoon launchers are either.
