Administrators Rabbi Posted July 8, 2018 Administrators Share Posted July 8, 2018 The last Iowa. The Battleship Wisconsin. Commissioned toward the end of WWII, in 1944. She was the ultimate example of Battleship design. She floated 9 16 inch guns and could rain hate from 23 miles. Decommissioned for the final time in 1992, she was the last Battleship to ever fire in anger (GW1) Even as a museum ship, she was required by law to be kept in a state of readiness, so she could be called back to the gun line again. This state of readiness continued until 2009. 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
