Battle Levels

Texas — American premium Tier V battleship.

During World War I, New York-class battleship USS Texas took part in patrol and convoy missions in the Atlantic. During World War II, the battleship escorted convoys across the Atlantic, took part in the landings of Allied forces in North Africa and Normandy, and supported landing forces in the battles for Iwo Jima and Okinawa. After her service in the Navy concluded, Texas became a museum ship in Houston, Texas, and then became the first battleship to receive the status of being a National Historic Landmark of the United States.

USS Texas is preserved as a military museum ship. She is currently in drydock for a major restoration. Her home port has yet to be announced.

Texas first went on sale in May 2016.

Player Opinion


Warning. The data presented in the AA Defense sidebar section may be incorrect.
For a graphic summary of ships Tiers VIII thru XI see LittleWhiteMouse's "Actual AA DPS".

Texas is a late World War II variant of the American Tier V New York-class battleship. She has essentially the same primary statistics as New York; her health pool, armor, guns, turret traverse, and range are all the same. There are subtle differences in her speed (0.5 kts slower), detectability ranges (more visible from the air), and rudder shift (slightly worse); the firing angles of her middle turret are a vast improvement over those aboard New York. The primary difference — and what everyone talks about when talking about Texas — is her ridiculous (for Tier V) anti-aircraft suite.

Texas boasts more than three times the anti-aircraft firepower of New York; indeed, she has more AA power than any other battleship of any nation until North Carolina at Tier VIII. Most of that punch is packed into her 40mm Bofors guns, which have a maximum range of only 3.5km. While it makes picking up the Advanced Firing Training commander skill an easy choice, it does leave players with a hard decision between AA Modification 2 and Artillery Plotting Room Modification 1 for Upgrade Slot 3.

Largely impervious to aircraft attacks, Texas can then focus her attention where it belongs: on enemy surface vessels. Like New York, her 14-inch guns are more than a match for the foes she will encounter at Tier V and VI, though she will struggle a bit more when up-tiered into Tier VII games. Similarly, her armor scheme holds up well until she starts seeing the incoming rounds from the likes of Colorado, Gneisenau, and Nagato. Destroyers that work in close will have to be dealt with via her primary weapons, as virtually all of her secondary batteries have been sacrificed in favor of anti-aircraft guns; she'll get very little help from the half-dozen anti-surface secondaries she has left.

Players experienced with the American battleship line will have little trouble adapting to Texas' playstyle; she is as subtle as a brick to the face, and she doesn't get where she's going in a hurry. Still, for a mid-tier premium, Texas is a great ship for making credits and re-training captains: fun to drive, easy to learn, and uncomplicated to play.


  • Best-in-tier AA defense; in fact, the continuous DPS of her AA guns is higher than any other battleship until Tier VIII. Aircraft from tier IV carriers melt in her vicinity and tier VI carriers will have significant difficulty attempting a second strike if her AA suite is intact.
  • The third (amidships) turret has much better firing angles than New York
  • Slightly better torpedo protection and detection ranges than New York.
  • Solid AP performance at mid to close ranges
  • Lowered citadel is difficult to hit by equivalent tier battleships
  • Good turn radius owing to the low length to beam ratio characteristic of dreadnought battleships
  • 19 km main battery range with Artillery Plotting Room Modification 1 Extends the firing range of the main battery and secondary battery: +16% main battery firing range. / +5% secondary battery firing range. / -5% secondary battery dispersion., and up to 22.8 with Spotting AircraftWhile active, a spotter plane circles the ship enhancing main battery firing range. active


  • Slow speed of 20.5 knots means she will frequently find herself left behind by her teammates.
  • Slightly worse rudder shift than New York gives her less reaction time to dodge incoming torpedoes.
  • Main guns have a slower rate of fire than her tech tree sister New York.
  • Her biggest strength — her AA armament — is vulnerable to being knocked out by incoming high explosive rounds; the longer she is under sustained HE fire, the less AA firepower she will have.
  • Short ranged AA (3.6km) with no flak explosions; this can work in her favor by enticing carrier aircraft closer where her medium and short-ranged AA will make quick work of them, but more often just means she has no long-range AA deterrent capable of assisting allies
  • Poor gun firing angles like her sister, you will have to give a significant amount of broadside to bring all her guns to bear
  • Prone to poor shell dispersion, accurate long-range gunnery will be difficult
  • 19mm deck and extremity sections make bow-tanking against any battleship or large gun cruisers such as Graf Spee ill-advised, Texas will easily take penetration damage through the nose or rear. Bouncing shells will have to be done with her belt armor


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

Optimal Configuration


The recommended upgrades for Texas are as follows:

Slot 1 is most commonly filled with Main Armaments Modification 1, though Auxiliary Armaments Modification 1 : +100% survivability to each. is a popular pick for captains who go for a full AA build with other upgrades and commander skills. Slot 3 offers two viable options: Main Battery Modification 2 increases turret traverse speed, while Artillery Plotting Room Modification 1 Extends the firing range of the main battery and secondary battery: +16% main battery firing range. / +5% secondary battery firing range. / -5% secondary battery dispersion. increases range and gives secondaries a slight boost in range and accuracy.

Commander Skills

Most aircraft carrier drivers know better than to mess with Texas, but without the adequate firing training skills/modifications, it is still possible to be torped or bombed by aircraft when the battleship is in a position where the carriers have no other choice. As a battleship, survivability is also an important benchmark, which means investing skill points into maximizing both her survivability and her anti-air defenses are the way to go.

The following information is provided for players who wish to create a permanent captain for the ship. Those players who are retraining captains or using the ship to gain extra experience for a captain should consult the page relevant to the ship to which the captain will be assigned.


Texas can equip the following consumables:


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