Forward 5in guns of USS Nicholas (DD-449) from forecastle
This view of the forward 5in guns on the Fletcher class destroyer USS Nicholas (DD-449) was taken from the forecastle area, and gives us an unusual view right through the gun houses, with the doors on both sides open. Also note the bridge above the second gun, and the gunnery director and radar above that.
