14” Guns. Two World Wars. The last of the Dreadnoughts is in danger!

USS Texas is flooding after damage from recent hurricanes -- keep her afloat through Wargaming’s Project VALOR (Veterans And Loved Ones Responsibility) Campaign!  

 

 

USS Texas was one of the most powerful battleships in the world when she launched in 1914, and was credited with testing advances in gunnery, naval aviation, and radar. She was still fighting hard in 1944, supporting the Normandy Landings with her 14” guns. Nine days later, Allied forces pushed far enough inland to be at the edge of Texas’ gun range, but still needed her guns for tough targets, so again the call for fire support came in. Captain Charlie Baker ordered the battleship’s starboard torpedo blisters flooded, to raise the guns a crucial two degrees. 

Texas answered to the tune of 24 massive shells, and by the end of the war, earned five battle stars. Today, she’s preserved by the Battleship Texas Foundation as a museum and national historic landmark -- a fitting fate for the final battleship from the dreadnought era, and the only remaining capital ship to serve and protect her country and its soldiers in both World Wars.  

Today, Texas is flooding again, this time under attack by the elements. The ship suffers constant leaks averaging over 300 tons of water per day, leading to significant erosion and deterioration that will eventually be irreparable. A team of historians, engineers and preservationists are attempting to move her to land before it’s too late.

It’s up to us to protect her.

Love that you guys are raising money for USS Texas. I bought the Camo & Flag for my Texas. Maybe you guys could look into helping the USS Olympia in Philadelphia. I believe they have been having financial problems maintaining her for many years now. She is a Protected Cruiser from the Spanish American War. Was Dewey's Flagship at Manila Bay. Think she would be a great Tier II premium cruiser.

The Texas is as much a veteran as any man or woman who has served under the flag of the United States. Happy to donate.

Camo purchased, lets put our money where our mouths are and save the Texas!  AND having a clan competition is a great idea with a Texas as a prize.

You know the Dry Dock Port would be very cool if we could put a CV, BB, CA, DD of our choice on permanent display in it.

Do you mean a ship from any time period?

From your port of unlocked or premium ships.  So I could put my Fujin, Marblehead, MO, and Saipan on display, change it if we want later to mix it up. Cosmic of course. But that should be done in another topic.  Sorry for derailing this important thread.

Very happy to see that you guys are helping to raise the money to fix up such a historic ship.  My only regret is that I can't pick her up to support this.

dang it, wargaming! why do you always decide to do fund raisers when I'm completely broke! I really want to help out with this but I don't got no money.... at least not right now paycheck comes in two weeks hopefully I'll be able to put some cash aside in order to get one of those texas bundles.

I have played three randoms with the camo and the flag, and there is no indication of a mission. So I guess it is limited to those who did not already have the Texas and bought the bundle.

Can someone confirm this?

 

edit: saw they just updated the posting on the webpage. You’ll get 5150 doubloons if you already purchased/own her.

100% of proceeds go to USS Texas. That's really something.

 

You get a virtual ship and every penny you spent goes to helping that ship IRL. Good on you, Wargaming!

Already have the Texas and two camos for it (the Stars and Stripes is one of them).  I really don't need another one.

However, I am a strong supporter of VALOR now.  I'll send a donation directly.

Way to go, Niko & WG!  This is a good cause!

Since you already own a Texas, if you buy another you from the VALOR page, you will receive her value in doubloons (5,150). The money you spent will still go to VALOR too.
