Photographer's Note

When the two sides of dispute need to resolve their difference, there are two ways. The most preferable method is diplomacy but sometimes words failed to settle. In such a case, people use force.

Not only using force as last resource, the human kind tried the best to distill and improve the methods of killing, and brought it up to an art.

These shells belong to the Battleship Texas, that had been used during the two World Wars. Her main battery consisted of ten 356-mm Mark 1 guns, which their armor piercing could fire 640kg-shells could reach a range of 21 km. Her secondary battery consisted of twenty-one 127mm guns their shells are in this picture. She also mounted four 533-mm torpedo tubes for the Bliss-Leavitt Mark 8 torpedo. The torpedo rooms held 12 torpedoes total, plus 12 naval defense mines.
