    "Soviet artillery in Berlin, 1945 [1124x729]"

    Tube artillery in urban environments, never very pretty.

    The one on the extreme right could have been my mother. She was sixteen when the war ended.

    That is one of the first, if not the first that I have seen without that raised rounded part on the bow. And some with a gun on it. As far as USN battleships of that era. Just the Union Jack in this case, mounted directly on the deck there. Or was this not an Iowa class? Was it only on Iowa class?

    The North Carolina and Washington were the first "fast" battleships in the USN.
    The SIMAs* followed and then the Iowas**.

    *South Dakota
    Indiana
    Massachusetts
    Alabama
    in launching order. (That's my way of remembering them.)

    **Iowa
    New Jersey
    Missouri
    Wisconsin
    in launching order.

    If you're referring to the data transmission antenna only the Iowas were equipped with that system.
