    The Naval Artillery Field is rapidly evolving for some time the artillery had been confined to classical scope barely increased from one generation to another and roles decrescientes against the advances of other weapons such as missiles, the situation is changing because they are shuffling different types of artillery ranging from classical chemical artillery, artillery passes through electro-magnetic and faces with more and more artillery force of pure energy or laser, and extensively investigated by the U.S. Air Force. Recent chemical artillery that are entering in action these days represent increases of 400% over the previous and with a precision guidance and terminal capacity, unknown to this type of ammunition, missiles meantime have increased by 200% only its scope but in terms of accuracy Progress is more modest. This situation of things will soon become obsolete the first and second generations in some cases Missile Sea Sea in terms of scope and absolutely for the cost between a missile and over a million dollars and saved a few thousand dollars. also is in study the debut of Electro Magnetic Artillery, with absolutely strategic scope and capabilities. The tables are a compilation of the characteristics of naval artillery rather more recent, so it is not always easy to collect information in several cases there are genuine empty, we hope to go later clarifying (pale yellow boxes are estimated values) The new generation of naval artillery Chemistry, reached such levels that reminded me of a story about a legendary piece of artillery the Germans put into operation shortly before the end of the First World War, is the "Canyon of Paris", the powerful feature has never been re-achieved in an operational state, a situation that the new pieces of 127 mm OTO-Melara and the United Defense have reached 90 years later ..... It's like installing "A Canyon de Paris" in a frigate, and with the addition of an excellent rate of fire and deadly accuracy! Finally I submit a link to a promotional video for the Signature Oto-Melara but very "educational" about naval operations of the XXI century.

    Lets go to past....


    The biggest naval guns ever.

    [​IMG]

    Yamatos 18 inch main guns rebuilt in 1/1 scale. Crewmembers are visible giving an idea of the size of the guns. Scene from the movie Otokotachi no Yamato.

    Big Guns: 9 x 46cm (18,1 inch) main guns called '16 inch specials' to confuse the enemy

    Yamato's nine main guns, mounted in three turrets, were the largest to ever crown a warship. They fired shells 18 inches (46 cm) in diameter, and each armour piercing shell weighed as much as a small car. They also could strike at an unprecedented range of 25 miles (40 km). Ironically, while designed to sink enemy battleships, they were never tested against one. Yamato fought allied ships only once, in the battle of Samar Gulf, where she sank one American escort and one destroyer with other ships form the Japanese force A. For her final mission, the imperial navy swapped out some armor piercing projectiles for incendiary, anti-aircraft shells, but Yamato's guns were still ill equipped for aerial warfare.

    One fascinating factor about the ammunition: since Japan suffered heavy losses in her naval aviation community early in the war, capital ships were expected to provide their own defense against allied aircraft. As a result of this, the 18-inch gun was provided with an anti- aircraft shell of its own, called "San Shiki" (the Beehive) Model 13. This round weighed 2,998 pounds and was filled with 900 incendiary tubes (of rubber thermite) and 600 steel stays. A time fuze was supplied, set before firing, that went off at a predetermined altitude and when the fuze functioned, the explosive and metal contents burst in a cone extending 20 degrees forward, towards the oncoming aircraft. Instantly after detonating, the projectile shell itself was destroyed by a bursting charge, increasing the quantity of steel splinters. The incendiary tubes ignited about half a second later and burned for five seconds at 3000 degrees C, producing a flame about 16 feet long.

    [​IMG]

    Due to the enormous size of the guns, all AA-guns had to be protected from the blast, which would blow off anybody's skin wihin 15 meter radius.

    [​IMG]

    Each gun turret weighed more than an entire American destroyer. A single turret was about 3000 tons, while for example the whole USS Hoel (dd-533), a Fletcher-class destroyer, weighted 2100 tons

    [​IMG]

    18 inch shell in the Yamato museum in Kure, Japan. One of these shells weighed 3218 pounds, 1460 kilograms, if it was an armor piercing shell. Normal shell weighed 2998 pounds, 1360 kilograms. And yes, these could be shot against enemies 25 miles, 40 kilometers away.

    The new Canyon 127/64 LW and ammunition of the Oto Melara Vulcano are in the process of entering the marine market, meaning a huge step of naval artillery because it achieves this performance and scope only by cruise missiles.

    Adding more information on the workpiece 127/64 LW OTO-Melara and the development of new ammunition for this new piece of the OTO-Melara, this program after the problems faced by the cannon ammunition ERGM mod.4 of Mark 45 United States, put the 127/64 LW Vulcano ammunition and expectant position in the market for naval artillery and its derivatives. The ammunition developed for the 127/54LW and 127/64LW and modifications to their charging system 127 / 54C "Compatto" is the Vulcan with sub-caliber projectile driven not rocket thanks to its higher muzzle velocity (1200m / s) has increased in scope with the previous standard ammunition of the compacts was up to 40 km, plus the Vulcan finned type LR Canard precision guide can plan to achieve ranges of up to 120 km, as appeared in recent publications as described in the recent Exponaval 2008.

    18 inch = 457.2 millimeters. jap's yamato had 9x18 inch guns on her deck

    bofor's 155mm gun are dead lethal. these 155 mm shell destroys everything it hits.

    if only 155mm gun is so lethal, then we can only imagine what 457 mm guns can do to you.
