USS Indiana

Above: An excellent photograph of the forward thirteen inch turret on the USS Indiana. To the right of the photograph is the forward port eight inch turret. Note on the forward superstructure the mahogany pilothouse and above the open air bridge. Below the pilothouse are three viewing ports. This is the armored bridge where the ship can be steered from during battle.
