Gallery: 1930-1941 Description: Stern view of the Arizona (BB-39) on 2 March 1931, newly modernized. During her reconstruction, tripods have replaced the old cage masts. Atop the tripods were mounted three level fire control towers. The bottom level controlled the secondary battery while the upper two levels controlled and spotted for the main battery. The funnel mounted searchlights proved unsatisfactory, so the lights were later moved to platforms on the masts. Note the stern of the destroyers Blakely (DD-150) & Biddle (DD-151) in the foreground.
