When America entered the Great War in 1917, the UD Navy deployed five 14inch / 50 calibre rail guns into France, each gun being a separate battery.

 

The video of the rail guns in action shows the guns firing, use of aircraft for controlling fire, command post operations, and the administration of the battery
