Part of the Jeep tour on Bora Bora takes you to some abandoned US Army artillery canons from World War II. They are 7" artillery with a range of 6 miles. The whole west side of the lagoon and western motus (coral islands) are visible from this vantage point. The island was never involved in battle.
