July 2014: Photo added. September 2006: Mike Stucka adds "Nearly reaching the height of Fall River's Braga Bridge, the bridge of the USS Massachusetts beckons visitors. The ship -- which fought the French, Japanese and Germans in World War II -- is the biggest but not the strangest ship in the flotilla of Battleship Cove. The weirdest ship is likely the Russian-built, former East German missile corvette that the United States Navy took on 50 tours. Nearby are a World War II U.S. submarine; a Cold War-era American destroyer; a pair of PT boats similar to John F. Kennedy's PT 109; and several aircraft."
