USS Iowa Guns & Ammo

The U.S.S. Iowa, open to the public near Los Angeles, has very impressive guns.
And the ammunition is also very large.
They also have cruise missiles (empty tubes now, I'm sure).
And finally, here's another view of the guns.

  4. Beautiful photos of an amazing ship. Too bad this technology was outdated by air power in the early 20th Century.

  19. «Louis» saw the Iowa just as she was about to be towed to LA from Richmond Harbor.

    Those 16" guns could hit targets 20+ miles away.
