The last photo is AWSOME! Can you imagine the sound of those guns going off. I wonder how many navy servicemen went deaf over them. I would imagine they wore earmuffs but still I think the noise must have been something else.

Considering that last photo the guns are at 45 degree, I suspect the targets almost 20 miles away OR they are using partial charges and trying to drop the rounds vertical on the target (reverse hillside or a particular bunker needs breaching.
