||The U.S. Seventh Fleet command
ship, the guided missile light cruiser USS Olkahoma city (CLG-5),
dressed up her weary six-inch barrels when she entered the U.S.
Naval Base at Subic Bay, the Phillippines, for regunning. The ship
was regunned following a 24-day period off the coast of Vietnam -
during which time she fired over 3,900 rounds of six-inch fire
against enemy targets from Military Region One in the Republic of
Vietnam to the entrance of Haiphong in North Vietnam.
||The gun turret of the "OK
City" is given a thorough inspection before being fitted with
new barrels at Subic Bay.
||The new guns received
around-the-clock attention from the ship's gunners.
After the turret was regunned, the ship went back on the line,
firing at military targets over 12 miles away. The ship
recently arrived in Yokosuka for a visit.
