"The gun could propel a 13 pound shell 7,000 yards at a velocity of 2100 feet per second. The gun weighs 7,500 pounds."

For all you USS Iowa haters out there its main armament could propel a 2,700 shell (that's about the weight of a Honda Civic) a full 23 MILES.

Its unfortunate that so many good men died in WWII, and more unfortunate that people like you have no appreciation for what they did so many years ago. Without their efforts, you wouldn't be allowed to act like the immature little assclown you are today. So just shut up and say thank you, that will work.
