    An empty missile tube for a BGM-109 Tomahawk Land Attack Missile, is lowered from a crane onto the missile deck of the decommissioned Iowa-Class Battleship USS Wisconsin (BB-64). Pictured is Steve Atkins (in striped red shirt) Facilities Manager with Nauticus and a contractor guiding the empty missile tube onto the deck. A total of four empty missile tubes were craned aboard, which will eventually be placed inside one of the MK-143 armored box launchers. The empty missile tubes originated from Naval Weapons Station Yorktown, which provides critical fleet ordnance support for the U.S. Navy. The Wisconsin is moored next to Nauticus and the Hampton Roads Naval Museum as a museum ship. (US Navy Photo by Max Lonzanida/Released).
