Re: Rewatched In Harm's Way and Something new
This is only the latest in a long line of silly and inaccurate images of warships from this film (both American and Japanese).
DD 298 that was in PH during the raid and rushes out to sea had a normal size A turret and B turret was hugely oversized. I am guessing that was a prop turret to hide post war armament and provide the 1941 look.
The actual ship is USS Philip (DD-498) and I see that by 1961 B turret was gone.
