 How I managed to pull this one off, I really have no idea, but a recent random battle with me driving a Fuso led to a reenactment of the October  battle in 44 off Leyte.."Battleships, the Last Duel". [ Military History magazine article from 1994].

Wee Vee  was a Colorado class when she started out, but was drastically rebuilt with heavier Dual Purpose  secondary batteries and AA trinary  refits. Her engines got an almost all new rebuild, as did her  port side armor, laid open by some 8 torpedo's at Pearl, and despite  Bulges being added they say her new top end  crowded 25 knots. Mian mast now resides at University of West Virginia main campus in Charleston.

Home state.. we wuz  kinda proud of her..but being inland the 1961 attempts to save her as a museum ship fell flat..we had no way to truck her here over the mountains, and  purchasing a harbor slip was prohibitive.

I';d fork over 5 K dubloons, or maybe 30 bucks for her as a tier..whatever the Colorado is,  Premium.
