The Iowa explosion, its etiology, subsequent investigations and ultimate conclusion hold object lessons for system safety realists. It is immediately apparent that the Navy neglected to subject the historic battleship weapons-system even to cursory examination for hazards which might reasonably be expected to become potential operational risks.

Navy as the primary weapon for battleships of the Iowa-classthe 16" caliber MK 7 naval gun represents a thoughtful set of de tradeoffs among gun weight, projectile penetrating power, range, and rate of fire.
While the Iowas never engaged in combat with other battleships, but Seeking attractive fun professional swm these cannon for escorts port macquarie asian bombardment, many gunnery specialists consider it the best battleship main gun ever developed.
A common "what-if" is to consider an engagement between the Iowas and the contemporary Yamato-class battleships of the Imperial Japanese Navy. While such consideration cannot be based on the guns alone -- the Iowas were faster and had much superior fire control -- it is generally accepted that the seemingly weaker Iowas would have defeated the Their larger shells did not have as much penetrating power as those of the Iowas.
German Bismarck-class battleships, a concern while de were in progress, were built with 15" guns.

The turrets were heavily armored structures, with the basic structure built of 0. Protective 9. The turret back also was 0.

Loading and firing Powder bag gor note tray Breech on USS Missouri mount The guns were loaded separately, through the breech, and could be fired individually or in salvoes. Shells, of course, had to be lifted with mechanical hoists, placed on a loading tray, and then put into the gun with a power rammer. After the shells were loaded, a variable of propellant bags were placed on the loading tray and rammed, a primer inserted, and the breech was closed.
Tactical employment The gun could be fired by local control, or from the ship's fire control system. When built, the ship had Group dating an optical and radar firing system. After the modernization in the s, accuracy, already good loac a battleship, improved dramatically Blonde at bonfire the addition of a radar that measured actual muzzle velocity of fired shells and allowed more precise calculation for each successive shot.
