I was amazed by this 1955 Navy training video explaining the turret operation on the Iowa class battleships. 79 men to operate one turret. After watching this, I don't think I'd complain about reloading times :)

That was pretty cool. I thought @Lert was going to load a hamster on a wheel video or something. It is amazing how many people were required to operate those turrets.

Thanks, Lert. I missed the embed option because it isn't in the main panel.

Usually just post the URL in the edit window and it'll auto-embed. Usually.
