The Arizona can be crossed off the list as she was assigned to the Pacific at the start of the war. Not to mention destroyed at Pearl Harbor.

Capt.Dylan

Have you ever thought that there were other Allied Navy ships that just might have been involved in the war? Also I dont think any of the ones you have listed other than the Bismarck even set foot in the Atlantic during the war and lets face it, the hood got a kicking but it didnt fair too well or really have that long a career.

Yamamoto was an Admiral. Nimitz's equivalent. Commander in Chief of the [Japanese] Combined Fleet.

I know this is a old post but I am curious why the Battleship Texas is never brought up. She served in convoy duty throughout the atlantic as well as supported ground forces for multiple invasions in the atlantic as well as the pacific. I thought for surely I would see her but I have yet to. In SH III I patrolled off normandy to see if i could catch texas bombarding the coast but I didnt see anything. Oh well I guess the only way we would see the ships we want to see is if someone creates them as a add in. Which is one thing that I just have trouble with. I cant find any mods that are still active that I want for SH IV. Then when I had SHIII working on my previous computer I couldnt get any of the custom ships to enable.

This is almost a trick question. Wasn't the Bismarck the only one that was in the Pacific? I an going to go with answer "A" please.

I am assuming you mean wasnt in the pacific for the Bismarck.

The USS Missouri was of the Pacific Fleet and was ordered in June 12,1940, laid down Jan 6,1941, and commissioned June 11, 1944. Decomissioned March 31, 1992.

The USS New Jersey was also of the Pacific Fleet and was ordered July 1, 1939, laid down Sept 16,1940, and comissioned May 23,1943.

the IJN Yamato was also in the Pacific, was ordered March 1937, Laid down Nov 4,1937 and commissioned Dec 16, 1941.

The IJN Fuso is as well in the pacific only. This was a japanese battleship but this battleship was laid down in March 11, 1912, commissioned Nov 18, 1915 and was decomissioned Aug 31,1945.

The Fuso is some what like the USS Texas or BB35. She was from the same period of 1912 but she was decomissioned in 1949 which is where she was towed to San Jacinto Texas and was allowed to become runned down and sink into the muddy bottom.

Lastly the USS Arizona was of the pacific fleet and was sunk Dec 7, 1941 in the pearl harbor raid and she still remains to this day in the same position she was on Dec 8, 1941.

Oops, I meant to say Atlantic, sorry about the confusion. It's amazing how long some of these Warships were in commission. The Missouri was still in commission when I was alive. I just think that is amazing.

It sure is. Texas has seen both world wars, the spanish incident where mexico boarded and took US sailors hostage down to providing convoy escort during WWI and WWII, bombarding the coast at the major landing zones such as Normandy, Battle of Cherbourg, Operation Dragoon, Operations Detachment and Iceberg. Got awarded the combat action ribbon, Mexican Service Medical, World War I Victory Medal, American Defense Medal, Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal with 2 battle stars, European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal with 3 battle stars, World War II Victory medal, navy Occupation Service Medal. Its just a shame that the New York was treated the way she was after World War II even though she was the name sake of the class of battleship Texas was based off of. She went through just as much as Texas did but the Navy didnt think so much of her and had her towed out to sea in 1948 and was expended as a target and sunk in target pratice.

But when you start looking at the different ships there were alot of WWI vetrans that fought in WWII as well. Most if not all of them were retired and either sunk as targets or ended up as museum ships at their respective state.

Remember that the USS Missouri was in and out of service several times over the years. It's final decommissioning was in 92. It is now a museum at Pearl.

Of course, she was taken out of service numerous times for upgrades throughout the years. Texas was taken out of comission a few times in her life to be retrofitted with more modern items. One was in 1930`s when she lost her orignal WWI cage masts and got the tripod masts. Like wise she had her double funnels deleted and had a single funnel installed.

With Mighty Mo, she was taken out to get cruise missles among other weapon upgrades considering the battleship era was over after WWII and the carrier took the battleships place. Thats why to this day we have no battleships anymore just big nuclear carriers and nuclear powered SSN`s.

R-Class Fleet Destroyer ordered with 4th Emergency Flotilla from Cammell Laird at Birkenhead en 2nd April 1940. The ship was laid down on 16th April 1941 but construction was delayed during May 1940 and did not recommence until September because of the priority given to repair of destroyers during operations off Norway and in the Channel. She was launched on 1st April 1942 as the 2nd RN ship to carry the name, previously borne by a destroyer built in 1916 and sold in 1927. Build was completed on 16th November 1942. Following a successful WARSHIP WEEK National Savings campaign in February 1942 this warship was adopted by Romford, Essex.

The Texas is currently a constant work in progress. She was floated & towed to a yard to have a lot of below the water line done & a new paint job. She is now afloat & there are places that you can get to again. The engine room & one of the main turrets come to mind immediately.

I got a look through the engineroom door and saw the engine room when I went back in 1997 or so. The armored bridge was off limits undergoing restoration as well as other places of the ship. But the thing is though I dont know what they got planned they are supposed to take texas back to Todds ship yard for more hull work since shes been sitting in the same area since the 90`s. There is talk of building a drydock where she is now and pump the water out and let her sit on pylons so people can see the outside of the ship as well. I am ok with that but they would have to reattach her propellers as well as her prop shafts. but I prefer to have her floating in water. Gives so much more to walk her decks and look out over water.
