Archive Footage

Numerous weapons can be seen during the archive footage.

A US battleship.
The ship's cannons are fired.
Another US battleship
The naval ship's cannons. The ship is either a cruiser or a destroyer.
This footage shows the twin turrets, which likely identifies it as a Colorado-class, armed with 8 16-inch guns.
A warship in the background on the left appears similar to Japanese battleships with very high superstructures(in the US Navy, this detail of Japanese battleships was nicknamed the "pagoda"). This is possibly a photo of the Battle of Surigao Strait of 25 October 1944 when Japanese battleship Yamashiro was sunk by six 14- and 16-inch US battleships, as described above.
A field cannon.
The field cannon is reloaded.
A French 75mm Mle 1897 field gun. The uniform of the gunner isn't French however, as he wears a typical British helmet.

Multiple Soviet "Katyusha" rocket artillery launchers.
