Trivia

North Carolina, when commissioned was nicknamed the "Show-Boat" as she looked too futuristic to be a US Battleship and how clean she looked like compared to past Contemporary US Battleship Designs as well as being more swift than past ships. She was the standard US Battleship Design of only 20-22knts and many US Sailors wanted to serve aboard her. Her AA during commissioning was truly frightening when she served in the Pacific and how when her AA fired one of the Carrier Captains radioed to North Carolina stating "Are you on-fire ?" The reason of this was the Combined Fire of the 20mm Oerlikon AA Auto Canon and the Quadruple 40mm Bofors Canon puffed out Black Smoke and Oerlikon with its Luminous AA Tracer Rounds. After the War North Carolina spent much of her time being mothballed and eventually given as a Museum Ship in 1961.
