Here's the USS New Jersey, BB-62, second of the Iowa-class ships built during WW2. Most decorated warship in US naval history. 16" guns could lob a 2500 lb shell from here to Trenton, which many seem to think might not be a bad idea. Berthed permanently just a few hundreds yards from her shipyard birthplace in Camden, NJ. 887 feet long, 108 foot beam, 29 foot draft, top speed 33 knots.

887 feet long. Twice as long as an Apollo rocket. Big ship
My one nit pick is the prop in the foreground.

Yeah big - 100 feet longer than the Titanic. This was taken from the parking garage, top floor, and I wanted to get that foreground in the frame, rather than a whole bunch of featureless sky. I've got a bunch more shots I haven't worked on yet, stay tuned for perhaps a better comp.

When I was in Nam they would fire over us bombarding inland. It was pretty cool.

I hope you don't mind but here is an official Navy Stock Arial photo of the Jersey.

I have read when the ship fires its bigguns it moves the entire ship in recoil. Puff the magic dragon had to be trimmed by the pilots due to the weight shift as the GE gatling guns were fired and the ammo lost the weight of the powder( not so much) and the projectiles( not just plain ole lead)

Here are a few more for those interested. I was an idiot earlier in the day and was playing around with the WB adjustments and forgot to reset them to neutral, so every shot was down around 3000K - blue to the max..Of course, the LCD shots didn't show it, so I took 200 snaps with the wrong white balance. Thank goodness for raw, in this case.

Complete set can be seen on Flickr, for those so inclined. Wandering around a ship like this, even with it's gargantuan size, gives you a finer appreciation for those guys who spent months aboard - on the inner-ship tour I was constantly hunched over to keep my 6'0" frame from knocking on the bulkheads overhead, and turning sideways to creep along the passageways between objects. 5" 6" and 120 lbs was a perfect size and weight for a Navy guy back then...

Nice shots, would love to see a BB but think I'm right in saying only in America is there a battleship in existance and there are a few!

I'm not sure the US has ANY full-line dreadnought-sized battle wagons still on the rolls. They're just TOO expensive to run considering their utility these days. A carrier and a couple of guided missile cruisers and you've pretty much got things covered. 1 Tomahawk > 16-inch guns.

They do make a BOOM though...
