The Arizona must have been an older ship with those tall towers.
I don't remember seeing them before and Wikipedia tells me they are "lattice masts,"phased out before WWII.

USS Arizona
Quote:
Length: 608′
Construction started: March 16, 1914
Launched: June 19, 1915
Weight: 29,630 tons
Cost: $16,000,000
Builder: Brooklyn Navy Yard
So it was probably designed around 1912.

That's $402 million 2019 dollars.

Ship-sized ship on the left, for size comparison.

Maybe a perspective thing. Maybe.

This Day in History - Ships Edition

Quote:
1911 – An explosion of badly degraded propellant charges on board the French battleship Liberté detonates the forward ammunition magazines and destroys the ship.
Name:  Liberte.jpg
Views: 53

from Wiki

Quote:
The explosion hurled a 37-metric-ton (36-long-ton; 41-short-ton) chunk of armor plate from the ship into the battleship République moored some 210 m (690 ft) away, which caused significant damage. Splinters from the exploding ship sank a steam pinnace and killed fifteen men aboard the armored cruiser Marseillaise, nine aboard the battleship Saint Louis, six aboard the armored cruiser Leon Gambetta, four aboard the battleship Suffren, and three aboard Démocratie.
