What US Navy ship fired the most rounds fired by a US Navy ship in WWII?
It is a ship....I suspect there is a twist in this and the answer is something like a shore-based training facility.
However, if we are talking about actual ships I am surprised it isn't the Enterprise or New Jersey as they must have racked up a huge amount of AAA rounds alone.
That would seem to be the case, and it would be logical.I suspect the argument is that a ship firing daily in a training role over time will use more ammunition than a ship in action for maybe a few days in its career.
The number of AAA rounds used during operations against Kamikazi was phenomenal but they were not constantly in action.
But you have not stated the number of rounds. Yes, I know what Wiki says, but the USS Wyoming article, likewise, does not present a number. And if you put some study to the matter you would know that rounds expended in training are by far exceeded by those expended in action . . . can USS Wyoming beat 42,000 plus not counting 40 mm, 1.1 in, 20 mm or .50 cal rounds expended by a single ship?
