Ah yes, the F4 Phantom: America's proof to the world that even a brick will fly if you put big enough engines on it! :lol:

It sure was one tough bird. Some of the ones that made it home were shot up so bad you would swear it couldn't fly.

F4 Phantom - To me, the meanest looking fighter jet (maybe also the A10 wart hog) in my opinion. In the day when I was stationed at MCAS Cherry Point I loved to watch those bad boys.

Armament of the Iowa-class battleship - Wikipedia, the free ...
en.wikipedia.org3000 × 1998Search by image
USS Iowa fires a full broadside of nine 16 inch (406 mm)/50-caliber and six 5-inch (127 mm)/38-caliber guns during a target exercise.


Okay, this brings up a question I've long had about large guns, but never looked up. How are large guns classified in caliber? A 16" gun is a 50 caliber? A 5" gun is a 38 caliber?

Chas.
Topic drift throwback. Since we were talking about 16" guns, this is 26-inch thick armor from a Japanese Yamato class battleship, pierced by a US Navy 16-inch gun. The armor is on display at the US Navy Museum. Impressive!!!
