Another "Name that Ship" where I post a picture of a warship and you guess what ship it is. This one will be a bit trickier to guess.

Here is the ship!

aJ9NMsA.jpg?1

Hint #1: American

DD2pUdg.jpg?1

Hint #2: Battleship

Hint #3: Commissioned 1942

Hint #4: Four ships in class

(Will add more of the photo as people start guessing)

(+1 for those who guess correctly)

I know those turrets and conning tower anywhere. The name ship of the class is down the street from me. The problem is which one of them is it.

I'm gonna guess USS Alabama (BB-60), because of the Bofors mount on #2 turret, and because it's in colour, I'm gonna guess that the photo is from after she became a museum ship.

My guess is New Jersey. 

 

 

I'm kinda split though. Could be Missouri. I don't think it's the Iowa or Wisconsin.

Those 5in guns though. That's not Iowa-class. South Dakota-Class. My final guess is USS Alabama. 5in gun configuration + that AA gun matches. 

 

Please excuse me while i go cry in a corner for getting the Iowa-class and South Dakota-class confused.

The answer is...

The USS Alabama (BB-60) of the South Dakota-class Battleships.

(Ran out of up-votes, will up vote those who guessed correctly tomorrow)

Thinking either Alabama or Mass. One of the SoDak's anyway. Bridge is wrong for the Iowas, funnel is wrong for North Carolinas.

Whole super structure is wrong for any of the Iowas at any point in their careers too.
