The USS Missouri (BB-63) was also called “Mighty Mo” or “Big Mo”. Its motto is “Strength for Freedom” and it was the final battleship commissioned and completed by the US.
This happened just before the Desert Storm and Desert Shields 1st Shock and Awe Campaign. To anyone who wants to know what exactly constitutes a Big Gun, may I present not one or two but NINE of them.
Take note, that was just one barrel at a time! Imagine how stunning it would look if she conducted triple fire from all of her three turrets — nine of them going off at once all booming and rattling. I bet it’s totally awesome for those guys filming it — how beautiful to see that personally and hear those guns! That’s raw power unleashed right there!
