USS Salem. Inside of main turret gun | World of Warships


With the outbreak of World War II,
the number of roles fulfilled by cruisers significantly increased, and by the middle
of the war the U.S. Navy decided they needed a new generation of cruisers.
These were to be the most advanced heavy cruisers of their time. The new heavy cruiser project was named
after the lead ship of the class Des Moines Initially, it was planned to construct
twelve ships, but plans changed, and only three cruisers were built.
The second one was USS Salem.

  1. Moi je souhaite qu'une chose pour 2020 (que les europeens de l'est arrête de faire exprès de faire perdre les Parties. WG faite comme Wot 2 serv 1 et 2 pour chaque continent !

  2. For a short time of development , the way how this was engineered and constructed. Is very awesome , I'm amazed that for ww2 lots of new machines and innovative design and products was used.

  3. and this thing doesnt have premium credit earning in game. very nice 🙂

    Just think of this ship right beside des moines in tech tree. Both doesnt have premium earning and both are standard ships.

  4. This video made me a little sad. To see this ship is so neglected and starting to rust. I get it is hard to clean a ship of that size but some parts look like they weren’t cleaned after her decommissioning. The video is still cool though.

  5. Hey, if you guys manage to get subs into the game, will you tour one of them like this? We have the USS Razorback here in Little Rock, Arkansas, and they do tours.

  6. It is a shame the ship is in poor condition as it is. It needs some TCL… I would go see it, but I believe it’s closed for the season.

  7. Hey! We’re starting the year with a special marathon that features a selection of updated episodes of the best historical series on our YouTube channel. It's the perfect time to get together with your family, wrap yourself in a warm blanket, pour a hot drink, tip back in a comfortable armchair, and plunge into naval history!

  8. Thought this was going to explain how the guns actually worked. Still amazing though.
    Reminds me that I need to go exploring on my ship, USS Wisconsin BB-64…Speaking of, when r u guys going to get down here to do a video on us?!

  9. Good video. Love the history behind these ships. Would be even better with some captions to explain things we were seeing.

  10. MMMmm, if you try hard enough you can smell the lead paint and asbestos. Actually rather surprised how much machinery and structure they left in those lifts and turret mechanisms. On most ships brass fittings and copper piping stuff has long been sold off or 'walked away'.

  11. some explanation would be nice for us who dont know anything about the mechanism, kinda sad that this ship looks unmaintained & dirty asf as a museum ship

  12. The big guns were used for radar controlled long range anti-air defense in real life. Why is this not applied in the game? Why is the radar range shorter than Des Moines using the same radar system? Can we expect legendary modules in the future for this tier 10? It a great ship and I love using it with emphasis on a heal/damage build for brawling close in. I have had matches well over 100,000 damage absorbed with the super heal. A powerful alternative to DM if you know how to use it as intended. Thanks WG.

  13. all the fucking brain dead teammates I get ruins the enjoyment of the game! Fix match making for fucks sakes!! great video by the way.

  14. Holy tight spaces Batman! I would get so claustrophobic in the underside of the turret. Can't have been easy to be doing you job in there.
    Interesting video.
