Interior of No.2 Turret, USS Louisville (CA-28)
Here we see the damage done to No.2 turret of the Northampton class heavy cruiser USS Louisville (CA-28) by a kamikaze strike. The picture was taken at the Mare Island Navy Yard on 7 February 1945. Three areas of damage are noted - a buckled and torn bulkhead, some broken grass, and fire damage to the roof. The view is looking 'aft and starboard'. She was hit by two kamikazes on 5-6 January 1945, while heading for Lingayen Gulf during operations to support the invasion of Luzon.
