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.
