What the thickness of the forward armored bulkhead on the USS Baltimore.  Between the number 1 & 2 turret and the bow and forecastle?  

 

Just as an example.  The USS new jersey's thickness is 11.5 inches!

You know this for a fact, or is this just a guess?

It's the value on an online copy of Conway's All The World's Fighting Ships, so it's very likely but there are sometimes mistakes.
