Vol. XXXVII No. 9
THE STANDARD MAGAZINE OF THE UNITED STATES NAVY
ON THE COVER
Looking more like some mighty creature of the air, poised for a takeoff into the sky, the giant 45,000-ton 24 USS Iowa, biggest battleship ever built, lies on the ways at the Brooklyn Navy Yard ready for her launching on August 27. Because of the impression it conveys of the great new battlewagon's tremendous power it is an unusual launching picture.
