"Battleship Study, BB 65 - Scheme 1 and BB 61-64 (Incl{usive})"


Preliminary design plan prepared for the General Board comparing the outboard profile (including superstructure) of the Iowa (BB-61) class battleships with the hull profile of the Montana class.
This plan is dated 9 July 1940 and shows the Iowa class outboard profile in solid lines and the hull of the Montana class in dashed lines.
At the time, the Montana class was planned to begin with hull number BB-65, rather than BB-67 as it became after two more Iowas were ordered as BB-65 and BB-66.
Scale of the original drawings is 1/32" = 1'.

The original plan is in the 1939-1944 "Spring Styles Book" held by the Naval Historical Center.
