Iowa Class Battleship Profile Drawings
This was the last class of battleship built for the U.S. Navy. The class was made up of USS Iowa BB 61, USS New Jersey BB 62, USS Missouri BB 63, and USS Wisconsin BB 64. Initially built as floating gun platforms, they underwent several refittings during their life-cycle. Armanent, electronics, and navigation systems were upgraded several times. During their final service, they had the capability of launching cruise missiles along with their might 16" guns.
We carry all of George Bieda's works of the "Modernized" Iowa Class, refitted in 1983. Several examples are shown below, including our favorite, the USS New Jersey (BB-62), in her modern configuration.
