Battleship New Jersey Visits Brisbane 1988

Share Button

Here are the scans of the brochure from New Jersey’s 1988 visit to Brisbane. Note the reduction in 5 inch 38 guns from a WWII peak of 20 to 12, in order to make way for the Tomahawk and Harpoon systems. The displacement figure seems a little low for a modernized battleship, especially if those are short tons rather than normal tonnes.
