True! If you can't find it on pd just use the one I posted. If you need more Navy ship or Sub pics let me know I have a small collection

Here's a Navy photo I like. This Big Bad Boy was shooting their big guns in Vietnam when I was there.

That's incredible. I can't believe how much fire is coming out of those barrels. Exactly what was the projectile? I imagine it wasn't just a solid piece of lead or copper.

They're 16"/50 caliber projectiles: (external link)
"The Mark 7 gun fires two basic rounds, a 2,700 pound AP (Armor Piercing), which can penetrate up to 30 feet of concrete, and a 1,900 pound HC (High Capacity) shore bombardment projectile."

Good call...You can find more data on Wikipedia, and just look up USS New Jersey on bing images. They have a better quality shot of the one I posted.
Mine was a scanned image of the picture.

The Atlantic Hawk coming in after doing buoy placing ops outside of St. John's.

This was in 2010. Great day for boat watching, crappy day for whale watching. :)
