Over the past week I have had the pleasure of exchanging e-mails with David Way, the curator of the Pacific Battleship Center, more or less the Iowa itself! Though other sources couldn't provide us with photographs guaranteed to be free of copyrights, Dave offered some of the Iowa's collection, and we will be featuring a photograph for every menu scene.
The photographs used in the game are:
- Iowa's engine room (Options menu)
- Iowa's four-level open bridge (Battle setup menu)
- Iowa's commissioning ceremony (US victory screen)
- Iowa at sea (Main menu)
- Emperor Hirohito with the officers of the Yamato (Japanese victory screen)
