Gallery: 1917-1929 Description: A magnificent salvo. The Arizona (BB-39), while steaming at top speed, lets go all twelve of her 14-inch guns at once in a terrific broadside during winter target practice in Cuban waters. The huge shells of the Arizona's 14-inch guns dropping all around the target. The Arizona is the only super-dreadnought of the navy to carry a white "E" on all her big gun turrets for excellency in marksmanship. The mighty floating fortress also wears a white "E" on nine of the twenty-two 5-inch rifles of her secondary battery and carries the same coveted emblem on her fire control tower. New-York Tribune. 14 March 1920.
