NC: February Programming Aboard the Battleship NORTH CAROLINA

The Battleship NORTH CAROLINA announces the programming schedule for February, 2014.

Firepower!

February 15, 2014

Time: 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

$95 per person. $85 for Friends members or active military.

Learn about and explore the Battleship’s 16-inch and 5-inch guns from the gun houses to the ammunition loading compartments; the 40mm and 20mm guns, and the weapons that they replaced (1.10 and 50 caliber guns).

The finest guns are of little use without the means to direct their fire accurately at the target.

Presenters will discuss the various types of fire control equipment (directors/optical range finders, radar, computers) and how main and secondary battery plotting rooms and the combat information center operated.
Participants will enjoy a lively, engaging, in-depth program with presentations, hands-on experience, and serious exploration for adult learners.
