    I've stood on the deck of the USS Missouri in Pearl Harbor...the guns are absolutely massive.

    My guess on the other vehicle is an Armored Personnel Carrier
    I really wish we'd had time to tour the ship. I hadn't planned to drive by the Alabama, but we changed our route home and drove through Mobile, and I had to stop and check it out. Unfortunately we were headed to visit our daughter's best friend, and had another 3.5 hrs to go, plus the rain coming in would have put a damper on it. If I ever muster up the courage to ride on a plane that far, Pearl Harbor will definitely be one of our stops.

    Thanks! Without looking it up, I believe those are 16" guns. Absolutely massive artillery shells! I didn't check out the vehicles as time was limited, but I imagine they are armored (or otherwise) personnel carriers.

    I looked it up, and yes, assuming it's an Iowa class battleship, they are the 16" guns.
    You're welcome.

    The armored personnel carrier looks as claustrophobic as a tank, maybe even worse, since there would be more men inside.

    That would have to be powerful to be on one of those ships when the guns were fired.

    I'd definitely love to tour a huge ship like that. The part that I'd be most interested in would be the spots where the shells and gunpowder are put into the guns.

    I'd also be interested in seeing the place where the engine of the ship is kept. It has to be massive too, just to generate enough power to move the ship.

    What? She didn't throw up an annoyed face and run away?

    Nope! As soon as she sees the "camera", she goes into Posing Mode! LOOL.
