The 8"/55 Rapid Fire Gun & Turret

We have talked about such things often; but I came across this 1955 USN training film that explains how they are constructed and function. Interesting.

Nice one...

Great footage.... Thanks for sharing.

What made me smile is that for all this high tech there is still a man required sitting on his butt to hold a a line while projectile handling. THAT is trueling amazing. :)

When machines no longer need human imput to fire a gun I fear our end is near, so I for one am very happy to see that!
