Response to No gun directors...

Susie, they are on there, look for the gun director tub right behind the twin 40's. I can't see well enough to see if there is an aft director or not.

On the 325, the single 40's have their own directors, both forward and aft. thus they don't need the control from the tubs.

You wouldn't want all of the guns fired by the director, as it can only aim one direction at a time. You wouldn't want all firing in the same direction while an enemy plane snuck in from behind.

Reference the camouflage paint job, the 807 was painted like that from the ship yard after being built. (notice all of the pictures we have with this ship going down the Ohio river)
