I am not much of a warship buff, but why not.

Reagan  is 1092 feet  long while Missouri is 887 - about 81% as long.  That the carrier is closer to the camera exaggerates the difference.

 

Mind you, it's less apparent in photos, but Reagan does have about twice the displacement as an Iowa Class battleship.

That's what startled me; there must be some serious foreshortening by the camera lens.  I wonder how far away the camera was.

Just shows the preeminent efficiency of the battleship, as opposed to the trendy politicized carrier showboats.

USS Abraham Lincoln

 

I idly wonder what Lincoln would think of such a ship named after him.

As I was just sailing down in Mobile Bay with his grandson this weekend, I looked around for a good photo of the USS Bulkeley but couldn't find anything inspiring. (1)

So how about instead a photo of Admiral Bulkeley's command, the USS Endicott in late '44...

0549504.jpg

(1) In talking to my friend John's mother, I didn't know it, but apparently, the was arrested by the Japanese before the war started for some "disagreement" he had with Japanese troops in China. Due to this he got to see how they treated prisoners first hand, though in his case they weren't ready to treat him badly. He was interrogated by a Japanese Officer who went to a US university and who decided Bulkeley wasn't a spy, so they released him.
