16 in Iowa class battleship against the New York skyline (believed to be USS Iowa herself).

26-inch thick armor from Japanese Yamato class battleship, pierced by a US Navy 16-inch gun. The armor is on display at the US Navy Museum just in case anyone asked to see the math.

All four Iowa-class battleships steaming together (1954). Ship closest to the camera is the USS Iowa (BB-61). The others are (from near to far): USS Wisconsin (BB-64), USS Missouri (BB-63) and USS New Jersey (BB-62).

16 in USS Washington off Port Angeles, Washington, April 1944. She was the second of the two ship North Carolina class; the US Navy's first battleships of the post-Dreadnought era, produced to 35000 ton Washington Treaty limits. Despite an eventful war including the sinking of Japanese battleship Kirishima in September 1942 she suffered no casualties at all throughout the conflict.

USS Oklahoma (BB-37), the only ship of the United States Navy to ever be named for the 46th state, was a World War I-era battleship and the second of two ships in her class; her sister ship was Nevada. She, along with her sister, were the first two U.S. warships to use oil fuel instead of coal.

16 in USS Washington off New York City, August 1942. She was to sink the Japanese battleship Kirishima later that year - see photo nearby.
