RULER OF THE SEAS

BIG-BORE NAVAL GUNS MADE THE BATTLESHIP


The "Battleship"....it has been referred to as a 'Naval Phenomenon'.  The mass of it's image was enough to scare an opposing foe....and when she let loose with her huge guns no enemy wanted to be on the receiving end of what was headed toward them.  Actually it was said that the battleship was more than a vessel....."it was a state of mind".....and when view...or even thought about it was a symbol of 'power'.


So other than size what made this immense vessel so thought of to be 'indestructible'....well folks it was the range and accuracy of her main gun battery.


So this is what this rather long article entails....the development of the battleship and how it revolutionized all Navies as the range and accuracy of the big-bore Naval rifles rewrote the rules of war at sea.


This article provides great detail on how these 'Big Guns' all came about....so if you looking to fine out what took place and when on this subject ....this will provide you with an abundance of facts.
