The first thing I thought was – What’s the pull weight on those triggers? – then I thought a flinch wouldn’t matter now – would it? – LOL! – When the “trigger system” was combined with radar that could accurately tell you where the shells were splashing down as well as give you accurate target acquisition – Oh My . . .
The Iowa class could drop nine 16 inch shells in a 90 foot circle every 30 seconds at 20 plus miles – there just ain’t a lot of room to hide a ship in a 90 foot circle – day time? night time? sea state? NO difference. The biggest change was all of a sudden the Japanese navy were no longer the sole proprietors of the night surface action . . .
Have Fun! – Run the Gun! – and remember – Fish Heads are Cheap!!
