Fort MacArthur - Battery No. 127


San Pedro, California (CA), US
Two 16" guns were emplaced in Battery #127 (later named Battery Paul D. Bunker), a massive concrete casemate battery built at White Point during World War II. The 16" guns could deliver a 2400 pound shell 26 miles out to sea, past Catalina Island. A similar emplacement, Battery #128, was built at Bolsa Chica near Huntington Beach, but it was not armed.
