USS Massachusetts 4K via Drone


The USS Massachusetts is a South Dakota class fast battleship.  Commissioned in 1938, the ship saw action in the monumental Battle of Leyte Gulf in 1944, regarded as the largest single naval encounter in history.   The 210 meter long (680 ft.) ship displaces 38k tons (unloaded) and its armament includes nine gigantic 16 inch guns capable of hurtling a 1k kg (2k lb.) projectile over 32 km (20 mi.).  Contributor PO3Smith created an amazing drone video of the ship, which now serves as a museum and sits in Battleship Cove, Massachusetts.
