Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Ran into this interesting and fairly instructive US Navy training film from 1955 explaining the layout and function of the 16 inch three-gun turrets that e.g. the Iowa Class sported.

Never knew so much manpower was needed to operate one turret (79 operators), and also did not have a clue about the complexity of those beasts, also it is quite amazing to see the technology of around the time of my birth at work.

Enjoy!
