Surface Combatants Surface    combatant    ships    are    battleships, cruisers, destroyers, and frigates. BATTLESHIPS.  —Battleships  (BBs)  partici- pated  in  few  surface  engagements  in  World  War II.    However,    with    their    large    number    of antiaircraft   guns,   they   proved   to   be   excellent support ships in carrier task forces. They provided gunfire  support    for  amphibious  landings  in  both the   Pacific   and   European   theaters—only   their large-caliber    guns    could    knock    out    heavily reinforced gun emplacements. They also  provided gunfire  support  in  the  Korean  War.   The   New Jersey  was  activated  for  a  short  period  of  service during    the    Vietnam     War     and     was     then decommissioned.  Today,  four,  BBs,  the  Iowa  (fig 19-2), New Jersey, Missouri, and Wisconsin, are in active service. 19-5
