(brass torpedo tube hatch recovered from maine)Although the United States is19century60The year is the pioneer in the field of iron Aflive construction in the world,They have made the first iron Monic Monitt with rotating turret,But these armored ships still can't make a voyage。But the Bank of British and European countries in the future“Monit”Number of designs。“Maine”The total cost is about468Ten thousand U.S. dollars。The concept of battleship is still a fresh thing for the US Navy at the time.,and“Maine”The number is also only second only to the United Kingdom.“Monarchy”The second boat before the battle ship。

American Navy built service“Maine”Battleship,At the beginning of the design, it is still an advanced battleship.


19century80Era,Since the US public opinion strongly opposes the construction of the Ocean main ship,Therefore, the US Navy is designed in this period to focus on the offshore defense.,Mainly responsible for the operational task of self-defense counterattack。But some of the South American countries are actively expanding the navy forces,Brazil has just received two British battleships—“Josorro”No“Aquada”No。The US government is deeply anxious about this,And it is considered that the country should rise straight,To catch up with the development of the world's navy。Since the Panama Canal has not yet opened(1914Completion of the year),The United States has to consider deploying two fleets that are independent and powerful in the Atlantic and Pacific coast.。

The Brazilian Navy entered two British battles to arouse anxiety of Americans.


Due to the desired armor, it cannot be in place.,“Maine”The construction progression is quite slow,At the time of completing service,Its ship design has been lagging behind the times,Its design concept and level are still19century80Early。Two main cannon tower is distributed to the angle,Each package has two doors254Millimeter(10inch)Main gun,The gun holder is slightly convex from the shiphead,The main gunhouse of the starboard is located on the right front of the upper building.。The shells of the main gun236Kilogram,Maximum shooting angle15°,Range of range18000Meter。

“Maine”The deck design is the same as the same species of the European,Surface layout is simple and empty,So the main gun can directly fire directly to the direction of the ship and the boat。However, due to the shooting of guns, the gun explosion generated during shooting is easy to damage the ship's facilities.,So this idea is not feasible in actual conditions。“Maine”The main artillery column on the number passes through hydraulic drive,Can be aimed at all directions。Six-door152Millimeter(6inch)The vice cannon is attached to the artillery toward each direction.。Used to deal with fish6The scallter is high,Arranged on top of the upper floor,Each combat is also equipped with one6Pound gun。Another four457Millimeter(18inch)The torpedo launch tube is all put on the main deck。The original plan is also equipped with two single tube fish lights,But there is no installment。

“Maine”The number is also designed,But its steel frame structure is not suitable for impact tactics。The inside of the hull is divided into two hundred and fourteen water tanks.。The longitudinally extending waterproof bulkhead will separate the two boiler cabins.,Central armored bottom is a double-layer boat bottom。Due to the distance between the two main artillery tower,The length of the central armor is close to the length of the hull length.。

There are eight ships135Horsepower boilers provide steam for two upright three expansion reciprocating steam engines。Another two generators can provide sufficient power for the lighting facilities and searchlights of the ship.。“Maine”No. The original design uses a three-way structure,And sail,Provide auxiliary power for the ship,But the third mast is removed after the hull,The balanced masts and signal tower are applied to the other two masts.。

After years of income,Research scholars of all parties“Maine”Explosion causes countless surveys and research。1975American Navy·Riche's report concluded,Think the explosion occurs inside the hull,Very likely152Millimeter(6inch)Coal cavitation by the shell pills,Today,The Burma Explosion is still a fan.,The result of the National Geographic Magazine in the recent survey is that the Maine's coal has been stored for a few months of explosion.。Mystery around Maine may never unveiled。Later“Maine”The wreckage of the number is salvaged from the harbor,Same together with the naval officers who sacrificed the highest honor,In1914year3moon12Sea funeral in the sea。
