Trivia

She, in regards may not be considered the first US Battleship but in terms of moderninty and turret alignment, coupled with broadside power, was a matching term to the world of Dreadnoughts. A term coined after the powerful British battleship Dreadnought while Dreadnought may feature Wing Turrets, her design was far more beyond the British, one of her Turrets are more designed as Super Firing meaning one Turret Firing over the other or Super Firing the bottom.
