Interesting film of the inner workings of the 16" turret of the Iowa class:

You know that the gun loaders have a love / hate relationship with that rammer chain. I imagine several hands, arms, etc. having close encounters of the worst kind.

Thanks Chickenboy. This was easily the best orientation video I've ever been subjected too! (Seriously, though, thank you for posting - that was very interesting to watch on several different levels - much appreciated.)

I saw about a dozen ways to lose an appendage all through the turret. That was a great video.

Very nice to watch- picked up a link to a modern day video of loading one of the BB's just before it went out of service- I have to say the men loading in the B+W orientation video moved a lot faster (less caution more- get shells in the breech).
