The US Battleship North Carolina (BB-55), lead ship of a class of 35,000-ton battleships, was built at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The USS North Carolina was quickly nicknamed "The Showboat" because of all the attention she drew during her trials in New York Harbor. At the time of her commissioning on April 9th 1941, she was considered the world’s greatest sea weapon. Armed with nine 16-inch/45 caliber guns in three turrets, and twenty 5-inch/38 caliber guns in ten twin mounts, North Carolina proved a formidable weapons platform. Her wartime complement consisted of 144 commissioned officers and 2,195 enlisted men, including 86 Marines. In her modern version, the catapult-launched float planes have been replaced by Helicopters for observation service. In 1961 the North Carolina was transferred to the State of North Carolina to become a memorial and museum at Wilmington, where she remains to this day.
