The Nevada-class battleship was a class of two battleships developed by the United States Navy during World War I. This class of battleships was a major development in design, utilizing a major armor protection approach. With this, three-gun turrets were also added, along with water-tube boilers.
During World War I, they only served to guide convoys but saw no action. Over the interwar period, the two ships moved to the Pacific Fleet and made several long-distance cruises. Unfortunately, both of the vessels were moored in Battleship Row during the Attack on Pearl Harbor. Oklahoma was sunk, while Nevada was seriously damaged and was later salvaged for combat.
