Behind her is a battleship of the Colorado (BB-45) class and to the left is a modernized unit of the New York (BB-34) class with another of the "big five"
behind her. The New York class completed modernization in 1927. Procyon still has a kingpost and boom between the bridge and amidships deckhouse, although a light
deck now fills the gap in this area.
