The super-dreadnought Arizona BB , latest addition to the Atlantic fleet and one cf the most powerful ships in the world, has just entered the service of Uncle Sam, fully, manned and ready for action. This addition to the Navy is far from a clear gain in strength, however, since it was necessary to strip three other battleships of their crews and place them in reserve to find a full complement of men for the new fighter.

The dreadnought Delaware BB , one Uncle Sam's biggest fighters, showing her mettle in the trough of a storm. The Kronprinz Wilhelm is now tied alongside of her, following her belated arrival from Norfolk. For what it is worth, it is not unknown for newspapers to submit photos taken sometime after they were first printed. It is also possible that the text in the photo caption is wrong.

Note the sub-caliber spotting rifles mounted on the barrel of each heavy gun, gun sight practice gear fitted across the top front of each turret, and whaleboat swung out on davits.
Though it is important for every gun crew to practice firing their guns with actual live ammo, the one ton shells of the main battery are a bit too expensive to use for all gunnery practice the gunnery divisions need. These small caliber guns were strapped to each gun barrel and fired at the targets to judge the proficiency the pointer and trainers without the expenditure of actual shells and powder. The ammunition handlers would run timed dry loading practice. Partial text courtesy of Chris Hoehn. Photo from The Sun. Over There - Photo by Central News Photo Service. The ship in the foreground first from the right is the Arkansas BB The photo shows a total of 8 battleships sailing in 2 columns.
The cage masts of a battleship is showing above the Arkansas' forward turrets and the ship on the far left is actually 2 ships 3 masts [the right hand of these 2 appears to be bow on to the camera sailing on a different bearing thus only one mast is showing]. Given the probable date of the photo, the flag on the foremast of Arkansas is probably that of R.
Winslow, which would suggest that the right hand column is probably Battleship Division 1. The New York does appear in the photo as the second ship in the right hand column second closest in the photo note the 2 forward case-mate guns verses 1 on 12" gunned BB's and the 2 gun main turrets. Assuming the the right hand column is division 1, the next 2 ships in that column would be Utah BB and the Florida BB both funnels are between the masts and the last ship in line the bow on ship may be Delaware BB Note arrangement of masts and funnels.

Delaware's BB crew getting ready for Saturday night during the day, while in Europe. This photo shows a side - loading torpedo tube aboard the Delaware BB circa Torpedoes were transported along the monorail above the tube and then lowered into it. Orders to the crew to fire were delivered through the speaking tube.
It was generally conceded that torpedoes were an extremely effective weapon but that their underwater tubes were a hazard because they constituted weak points in systems of bulkheads protecting against underwater hits. For a time, therefore, U. They were therefore, omitted from the ships reconstructed during the interwar period.

Though equipped inflatable floats for water landings, this tended to do a lot of damage not the least of which was dowsing a hot engine in cold salt water. By a successful compressed air catapult was developed and were being mounted on the aft deck of all 4 turreted battleships and fly-off platforms were removed. The Texas and New York BB , because of their 5 Turrets, lacked the deck space for the catapult and had to make do with a float plane Vought VE-7 sitting on the aft deck which would be launched by lowering it over the side for a surface take-off.
If you look carefully at this photo you see the VE-7 on the deck and the A-frame hoist used for handling it. Photo by Paul Thompson.
