Iowa-class battleship of the US Navy nicknamed 'Mighty Mo' or 'Big Mo', the third ship such vessel to be named after the American state of Missouri. Ordered in 1940 and commissioned in June 1944, she was the last battleship built by the United States. She fought in the battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa, carried out bombardments of the Japanese home islands and the surrender of the Japanese Empire which ended World War II was signed aboard her. After service during the Korean War (1950-53) she was decommissioned in 1955 but later, in 1984, brought out of the US Navy Reserve and modernized, her last military use was the provision of fire support during Operation Desert Storm early in 1991. Decommissioned in 1992, struck from the Naval Vessel Register in 1995, she is now moored at Pearl Harbour, Hawaii, where she rests as a museum ship.
