The USS Wisconsin firing a Tomahawk cruise missile during the first Gulf War (Operation Desert Storm). In times when war vessels have become lighter and smaller, big battleships like the Wisconsin are used as artillery and missile platforms, mostly against ground targets. The Wisconsin was decommissioned in 1991, a few months after the Gulf War.
