This was once the pride of the us navy, it was the biggest and heavily armed battleship of the U.S. navy for the post WW1 era, and well into WW1, but unfortunately she was sunk after being partially dismantled in 1924 due to the Washington Naval Limitations Treaty.

Here are a few links to some sources and images of the Battleship (Note some of these images are also of the USS. Delaware).

I personally think that adding this ship as a premium tier III or IV battleship for the U.S. Tree would be an amazing idea!

I’d say too many main guns for tier 3 but could fit at tier 4 as an alternative to Ark Beta for newer players

I doubt WG will add her. especially since there's a good possibility that they'll be adding South Dakota as an alternate tier 8 for a future 2nd USN BB line.:fish_book:

Also assuming WG ever allowed players to have one. the USS Arkansas is basically the same ship but better! well minus the AA guns.seriously WG why didn't we get a 1942 refit model instead!?:Smile_teethhappy:

 while on the subject. I'd love it if WG would recommend  USS Tennessee for an alternate tech tree line tier 7 for new mexico. you could even have her sister the USS California as a tier 7 USN BB premium ship! Their refits are just awesome and would be something special to see in the  game!:cap_look:I'd also love it if my home states' ship USS Oklahoma would be added in eventually:fish_cute_2:

It'd kind of be a Wyoming clone, honestly. Florida, Delaware and Wyoming-classes were very similar to eachother and saw only small incremental upgrades between them.

I was under the impression Nouth Dakota went to the breakers after being replaced as a target vessel by Utah.
