    Awesome picture! I'm going to have to make this one into a wallpaper. I wish we still had a couple of this class in service, they were a much better and more powerful ship in the smaller missile class that they basically replaced, much cheaper to refurbish the new class would have cost as well. Here's a couple videos of them firing:

    Really cool stuff! Nothing exudes power like a battleship! I always wanted to build a model of the Iowa class from the modern time period.

    Then of course, some of these big guns were used on land to devastating effect!
