Uncle Sam's Newest Dreadnought Showing 3 Gun
Turrets as She "Went Under Brooklyn Bridge

The newe3. and perhaps the mighti-
est of Uncle Saup's dreadnaughts is
ibout to begin her trials and this
.3hotograph of her was taken as she
Acnt under Brooklyn bridge on her
A-ay to the New York navy yard to
be prepared for her trial trips. The
Nevada carries ten fourteen inch guns
and no other battleship in the world
is arranged with three of such enor-
mous guns in one turret.
The Nevada has two such turrets
one forward and the other aft. The
throe guns to each turret are four-teen-inch
and forty-five calibre. These
?uns will be fired in salvos of three
guns each. There are two other tur-
rets on the Nevada ono forward and
one aft and arranged to the rear of
the three-gun turrets and rising
above them. These turrets each have
two fourteen-inch guns.
Besides the four .arrets with their
ten fourteen-inch guns the new
dreadnaughc fairly bristles with five-
incli guns' which' compose her sec-
ondary battery. There are twenty-
one guns of the five-inch type and
they protrude froisi every conceivable
part of the monster. Not only is the
Nevada prepared with guns to make
her a worthy antagonist of any fight
ing ships afloat but she is also armor-
ed to such perfection that It would
take many mighty shells to reach her
The Nevada is a sister ship to the
Oklahoma now under construction
by the New York Shipbuilding com-
pany and like her Is an oil burner.
She is equipped with Curtis turbines
with an Indicated horsepower of '24-
800. The government contracts calls
for a speed of 20.5 knots a speed the
builders say they will have no diffi-
culty in attaining judging from the
way the dreadnaught performed dur-
ing her trip from thb yards to New
York. The Nevada Is 575 feet In
length on the water line.
