If you have never been on a ship that fired it's main weapons at the same time, you have never lived. It's incredible, the ship tips as it moves sideways through the water, the entire structure vibrates, and the water directly around it jumps and shakes like a crater for just a fraction o a second. And then downrange you can see the target(in the ship I was on, the target was a scuttled ship for an artificial reef) just go up in smoke and flames. Truly an awe inspiring experience.

Never read about that. makes me curious though what it's going to use for a targeting system. Extreme range with a rail gun on a ship rocking in the ocean is going to create some interesting targeting systems methinks.

you should see the new deck housing for it. full composite, ready to house a gun the full length of the ship.

Wind and pressure will surely figure into it at well. For a normal round going a few thousand feet a second, wind is a problem. But for a round going mach 10(11,500 FPS) even a small pressure difference as it travels would equate to hitting a cement wall, it would not stop the round instantly, but it would steal velocity and alter direction. Not to mention ocean spray, mist, rain, etc. I am curious how they will solve that, but haven't found anything yet. We will see what the next few years gives us I guess.

That is the USS Iowa, the first ship of the Iowa class Battleships. She was state of the art back in WW2 and served the United States through every conflict all the way up to the 90's. She was made when pure brute force won battles, those 16" guns could fire 2,700 lb shells 24 miles within 250m of its target, which isn't bad since it could destroy everything within that 250m radius.

God she is beautiful.

Port = left = even (number of letters), also remembered by both having four letters.
starboard = right.
fore = forward, aft is behind

Whatever system the USA uses (I don't know the name.) has a unit of measurement called a foot. 12 inches.

interesting fact; if you were on deck at that point, you would be a sack of mush, and no longer on that deck, seeing as you would have been sucked right of of it. dunno how far you would go, but certainly in excess of 100 meters.
