Iowa class Battleship info


Why would the ICB be on this list. Maybe because when the New Jersey was cruising off of Lebanon and encountered a missile site belonging to Hezbollah that was down in a valley and couldn't be reached by aircraft to take out. Along came the Jersey and blew the whole top of the mountain down on it. Ask Hezbollah or any of the other bad guys of the time their opinion of the New Jersey. Same as in Nam when she was doing fire missions. Marines loved her as the stable gun platform that she was, firing accurately from the sea where no one could touch her.
