Episode 42 of Know Your Ship! In this educational video I cover the Colorado class battleships of the United States Navy. These battleships were the first in the US Navy to be equipped with the 16″ guns. The last of the standard type battleships in the US Navy had quite a history being involved in two incredibly notable historical moments at Pearl Harbour and the Battle of the Surigao Strait. Anyways Captain’s sit back, relax and enjoy the story of the Colorado class battleships.
