FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 1938 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Research As to Efficiency of 18 Inch Guns Underway — .-. >'ei). 10. (UP)— Speculation has been revived here as to whether the United states eventually may equip its flghtln" >/; t)iit)s with 18-inch guns. v'' This type gun has never been '..mounted on any battleships of this riatlcn, and navy officials Insist ihe weapon exists only on paper DC- spite Ihe strlcl secrecy thai surrounds all mailers of ordnance however, Jl is known [hat research concerning the efficiency of the 18-Inch gun is being constantly carried on. It is admitted that a weapon of this type would possess enormous destructive power, but many naval officials doubt whether Its use would be worth Die ..sacrifices (hat would have to be made along other lines duns Now Weigh 128 Tons It is pointed out, for example ">at Ihe iaraest pun now used In Die United States fleet, the iG-lnch. 50-callber weapon, weighs 128 tons The 16-Inch, 45 caliber gun weighs 105 tons. Eacli projectile or shell used In the 18-inch gun weighs 21,000 pounds. The next smaller size, the 14- Inch'50-caliber gun, weighs 81 tons, wlille Its projectiles weigh 14,000 pounds each. Thus, it is pointed out that because of the great amount that' an 18-lncli gun would weigh, fewer 01' these wcaiions and Ahf\t projectiles could be carried {•' In addition, smaller, more "flexible 1 weapons would have to lie sacrl- \floed. The present, 16-inch. 45-ealiber guns such as are used on the. battleships Colorado, West Virginia nnd Maryland can fire their projectiles a distance of about. 10 miles when the guns are at an elevation of 30 degrees—the elevation at which the longest distance can be obtained. At the same elevation, the 14- Inch, 50-caliber guns have a range ol more than 10 miles. Guns of this type are used aboard the battleships California and Tennessee Smaller duns on Four Ships The .battleships Pennsylvania Arizona, Oklahoma and Nevada use H-inch guns of 45 caliber. / maximum range of 21,000 yards cai he obtained at a 15-degree 'elevation The.penelralipn.power of an 18 inch .gun . undoubtedly would b; higher,than any guiyndv" in iise>Trfe*Uiiricli."45'-caliber gin. alone Is said to be capable of pierc JB.'n« 18 inches ol armor plate at : T '.OisUince of s.Ooo yards. In' addition to the considerable- extra weight that an 18-inch gur would involve, the turret upoi which She gun is mounted als- would Jrave to be heavier am' stronger to absorb the terrific recoi' such a gun would have. Great, sacrifice.'! in speed nls< would have to be made, it is said if guns much larger than Iho* how used were put into commission One Variety Community Cotton Plans Discussed CARUTHERSVILLE, Mo., Feb.
