On  Google maps.  it is the gun line where Navy guns are tested.   There are 16" rifles visible. 

Anyone have pictures other than satellite?

Sorry, I was too busy learning about AEGIS and TBMD to bother with the museum pieces while at Dahlgren.

there seems to be an A-6, an F-14, and a Blue Angel F-18 at the Airfield to the Northwest.

Any idea when this image was taken?

is that the 8" mk73? i forgot what's designation was.

Probably.  Last I read the kept at least one of everything.  At some point congress made told them to keep 16" and 8" in case we wanted to issue those again.  The rail gun is also tested there.  I was told it sounded very strange when fired and could be heard on the rest of the base.

But it is the truth - my DDG needed a WEPS and BMDO asap.  Was hurried through the AEGIS Trk II Watch Officer class then TBMD basic.  Did not have time to go through the museum pieces - wish I did!

Came off sounding like “no one cares about that stuff, because it’s old”

better context makes it less douchey lol
