Battle Levels

Missouri — American special premium Tier IX battleship.

USS Missouri, the third Iowa-class battleship, was laid down in 1941 and launched three years later. During World War II, she served in the Pacific Theater. On September 2, 1945, the Japanese Instrument of Surrender was signed on the battleship. Between 1950 and 1953, the ship participated in the Korean War. In 1984, the battleship was modernized—guided missiles were installed. In 1991, she participated in Operation Desert Storm. Missouri received 11 battle stars for her service; she is now a museum ship in Pearl Harbor.

USS Missouri is now preserved as a military museum ship in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Missouri was first released for sale worldwide on 7 December 2016, and was removed from sale on 28 February 2018 with the release of Update 0.7.2. It was brought back as a ship available for purchase with the Pacific War event in Update 0.10.7, albeit unlike the legacy variant, it was returned to the game as a ship earning only the standard amount of credits per battle for a tier IX premium ship.

Player Opinion

Affectionately referred to as "Mighty Mo" by her crew while she was on active duty, USS Missouri comes to World of Warships as the game's first Tier IX premium. She has many similarities with her counterpart in the American battleship tree tech tree (Iowa) but with a few key differences.

The primary difference is that Missouri carries the Surveillance RadarWhile active, detects all enemy ships within the specified radius, disregarding obstacles such as smoke and terrain. consumable instead of Spotting AircraftWhile active, a spotter plane circles the ship enhancing main battery firing range. or Catapult FighterWhile active, a group of fighter planes circles the ship providing protection by attacking incoming enemy aircraft.. This completely changes her play style, allowing her to aggressively support capture areas and help her team's destroyers to win battles in those areas. She is especially dangerous to British cruisers and smoke-reliant cruisers, as the radar allows her to penetrate their smoke screens and catch them off guard with a well-aimed salvo of armor penetrating shells. In addition, her radar is a considerable threat to enemy DDs as she or her allies can deal considerable damage to any DD caught. Even if her radar doesn't catch them, the mere presence of it can zone out DDs, making it hard for them to launch torpedo attacks or deal effective gun damage. Other than the radar, her other combat characteristics are similar to Iowa, with powerful super-heavy AP rounds, high speed, and good anti-aircraft suite. She does have a thicker forward armor bulkhead, but — just like Iowa — it can still be reliably penetrated by Yamato’s 18.1-inch shells.

Missouri’s other significant difference from Iowa is her status as a Tier IX premium ship. She will earn a large number of credits, not uncommonly earning at least 1 million credits with economic bonuses. Players who purchased her prior to the 10.7 patch get access to an improved permanent Credit bonus of +40%, compared to +10% for other Tier IX ships, making her the undisputed best credit-earning ship in the game. Besides her income advantage, Missouri is a very effective American commander trainer due to her high exp earnings. Unfortunately Missouri is very difficult to obtain, only being available during limited-time events or if the player is lucky to draw her in a Santa container.


  • Improved forward bulkhead protection over Iowa.
  • Shares many of the same strengths as her sister ship Iowa, including:
  • High base top speed of 33.0kts
  • Powerful and accurate 16"/50mm guns
  • Excellent AA by T9 BB standards
  • Has access to the Surveillance RadarWhile active, detects all enemy ships within the specified radius, disregarding obstacles such as smoke and terrain. consumable, active for 35 seconds with a 9.5 km range.
  • Long lasting immunity period in her Damage Control PartyWhen activated, instantly repairs fires, floods, and incapacitations, and prevents more for the duration.
  • Low surface detection, achieving 12.7km surface detection with the proper build


  • Shares many of the same weaknesses as Iowa, including:
  • Poor armor protection, including a vulnerable citadel
  • Weak torpedo belt protection
  • Unable to mount either Spotting AircraftWhile active, a spotter plane circles the ship enhancing main battery firing range. or Catapult FighterWhile active, a group of fighter planes circles the ship providing protection by attacking incoming enemy aircraft.
  • Lacks the enhanced Repair Party of Iowa. Missouri only heals the standard 0.5% per second or 14% total per charge, compared to 0.66% per second or 18.48% total per charge for Iowa.
  • Poor maneuverability, having the largest turning radius and second-worst rudder shift time among Tier IX BBs


As a premium ship, Missouri has no module upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration


The recommended upgrades for Missouri are as follows:

Commander Skills

Like the US tech tree BBs, it is recommended for Missouri to build for full survivability. This maximizes her chance of surviving into the late game where she can put her radar and accurate guns to good use. Missouri captains should take the following core skills for her first 10 points:

  1. Preventative Maintenance OR Gun Feeder
  2. Grease the Gears
  3. Adrenaline Rush
  4. Concealment Expert

After taking her core skills, players should take Fire Prevention next to reduce damage taken by fires. Emergency Repair Expert to improve her heals; the extra heal improves her late-game potential. Finally, Basics of Survivability is useful for further reducing fire damage while also reducing flood damage.


Missouri equips the following consumables:

The major difference between Missouri and Iowa are found in their consumables: Missouri trades her plane based consumables for access to a 9.5km 35s Surveillance RadarWhile active, detects all enemy ships within the specified radius, disregarding obstacles such as smoke and terrain.. Very few battleships can mount radar. In addition, Missouri only carries the standard version of Repair PartyWhile active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second. unlike the improved version found with the US tech tree BBs.


As a premium ship, Missouri comes with Default permanent camouflage and a set of permanent combat bonuses.


Missouri’s signal loadout should focus on maximizing her survivability. India Delta (+20% to the amount of HP recovered when the Repair Party consumable is used.), India Yankee (-20% to fire duration.), and Juliet Yankee Bissotwo (-20% to flooding duration.) will help with this. Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) is worthy of consideration for captains who enjoy flexing Missouri’s 33+ knot speed, while November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.) and November Echo Setteseven (+5% continuous damage by all AA guns, +5% damage per second within the explosion radius of shells fired from medium- and long-range AA defenses.) will help reduce her consumable cooldowns and further enhance her AA suite.

Note: Use of the Juliet Charlie signal makes detonation impossible.

  • Update 0.6.12:
    • Detectability when firing main guns in smoke changed to 15.64 km.
  • Update 0.6.13:
    • The survivability of air defense weapons was tested and brought to a single standard. The change affects 40mm guns.

  • Update 0.10.9:
    • Fixed an error that occasionally caused the main battery shell ballistics to be calculated incorrectly (much higher trajectory).
  • Update 0.11.6:
    • The combat mission for +30% credits was removed. Instead, owners received an improved permanent Credit bonus of +40% instead of the default +10%.
  • Update 12.0:
