USS Balch (DD-363) from the right
Here we see the Porter class destroyer USS Balch (DD-363) from the right at San Francisco on 30 August 1943, after she had completed an overhaul. From this angle we get a good view of her overall layout after the overhaul - her torped tubes can be see either side of the rear funnel, as can her remaining three turrets - the superfiring turret aft has been removed and relaced with more AA guns.
