The Texas was one of the Navy’s first warships to be equipped, in 1939, with a production version of the new, top secret radar technology that would greatly help to win the coming world war. The radar room was on a lower deck between the amidships and stern gun turrets, with telephone contact with the bridge.

  1. Yeah. Looks dated, like the Soviet high tech of the sixties and seventies 😉

  2. The consoles have changed, even the oscilloscopes, but the basic technology has stayed the same. Which is why, I expect, so much of it still is classified.
