APNS Commune of Nashville

The APNS Commune of Nashville (BB-43) bombarding Guam on July 19th, 1944.

The Tennessee-class was a class of battleships of the United States Navy and later American People's Navy. The class comprised two ships: Tennessee (renamed Commune of Nashville) and the California (renamed Commune of Sacramento). They were modified versions of the New Mexico-class featuring improved underwater armor for better torpedo protection and 30 degree elevation on their main batteries, as opposed to 15 degrees for the New Mexico-class. Both ships were extensively rebuilt after being damaged during the attack on Pearl Harbor, and survived World War II to be scrapped shortly after.
