 In October 1984, the battleship was towed to the docks at Long Beach, California where she would undergo a major refit before her re-entry into service. During this overhaul, she received Tomahawk and Harpoon missile systems. ''Missouri'' was officially recommissioned on 10 May 1986 and joined her sister ships in conducting coastal operations during the Gulf War, most notably conducting bombardments near Kuwait City. Following the end of the Cold War, ''Missouri'' was again decommissioned and stricken on 12 January 1995. She was placed back in the Pacific Reserve Fleet in Bremerton, Washington until 1998 when she was towed to Ford Island in Honolulu in preparation to make her a museum ship. In 1999, ''Missouri'' — now adjacent to the ''[[Arizona]]'' Memorial in Pearl Harbor — opened to tourists and continues her service today as a historical reminder of the end of the battleship era. In October 1984, the battleship was towed to the docks at Long Beach, California where she would undergo a major refit before her re-entry into service.

?====''Missouri'' Under Siege==== 
? 
?In April of 1992, an incident occurred aboard the ''Missouri'' which was later suppressed for several months. Shortly after leaving Hawaii for deactivation in California, ''Missouri'' was boarded by criminal mercenaries intent on stealing her complement of nuclear-armed Tomahawk missiles for sale abroad. Led by William Strannix, a clever and formidable ex-CIA agent who had been dismissed from service, they gained access to the ship at sea en-route to California. Disguised as caterers and musicians contracted to be on board for a surprise party for the captain, they quickly managed to take control of the ship with the help of the executive officer Krill, an angry, unstable, and disaffected officer. The crew was rounded up and locked into the forward sections while the mercenaries began making preparations to remove the Tomahawks. The plan was to transfer the missiles to a stolen North Korean submarine and for those involved to disappear along with their stolen goods. 
? 
?Fortunately, one man, Casey Ryback, had been forgotten in the chaos of the initial takeover. Ryback, one of the cooks, was originally a Navy SEAL who was finishing out his service after an incident in Panama. He had previously been locked in a storage freezer by Krill just prior to the assault, but managed to free himself after Strannix sent men to have him killed, killing them in turn. Discovering the captain and several other crew dead, the ship deserted, and no party underway, Seagal began looking for clues as to what had happened when he encountered Jordan Tate, an actress who had been contracted to emerge from a cake as part of the entertainment cover for the takeover. 
? 
?Navy forces first got wind of the hijacking when an F-18 out of Hawaii conducted a close flyby looking for the helicopter which the mercenaries had used to board the Missouri and was subsequently shot down. An attempt to contact the ''Missouri'' resulted in a conversation with Strannix where he attempted to pass himself as delusional to cover his true intentions. Preparations were made to take back the ''Missouri'' using SEAL Team Five, and the Nimitz with her aircraft were to be held in reserve to sink the Missouri as a last resort. 
? 
?Meanwhile, Ryback and Tate then proceeded to the weather deck aft to the landing pad where they sabotaged the helicopter, destroying it, with Ryback killing several of the mercenaries. They then made their way forward and found several of the crew behind a welded door. They managed to disable the ship's weapons systems and defeat an ambush prepared by Krill, the objective being to shut off the forward fire suppression system which Krill had engaged to flood the sections occupied by the crew as bait for his ambush. Unfortunately, the incoming SEAL Team Five was eliminated when their helicopter was destroyed by surface-to-air missile from the newly arrived submarine. 
? 
?Strannix and Krill had by this time managed to offload several Tomahawks to the stolen submarine, though the submarine had been damaged by Ryback and could not dive. Having seemingly made good on their heist, the submarine began to sail off, but Ryback and the remaining free crew managed to put one of the main battery rifles into action, sinking the submarine on the second shot. 
? 
?In retaliation, Strannix fired the two remaining nuclear-armed Tomahawks at Honolulu. Ryback then reached the CIC and killed Strannix in a knife fight. One Tomahawk was destroyed by air-to-air missile fired by an F-18 sent to intercept, the other was detonated using the safety codes recovered by Ryback in coordination with Navy officials in Washington, D.C. 
? 
?The initial reaction of the government was to classify the incident under the guise of a training mission. Individuals present during the siege were barred from communicating as to the nature of the events which had occurred on board and around the ''Missouri''. However, this measure was short-lived as President George H. W. Bush approved a Freedom of Information Act Request by executive order, and the details of the event were quietly made public. 
? 
?====After the Siege==== 
? 
?Casey Ryback retired in 1993. He opened a restaurant in Baton Rouge and held an annual knife-throwing competition for a further five years. Ryback sold his restaurant in 2000 and now lives in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana. He spends his time teaching Aikido and serving as a reserve deputy sheriff. 
? 
?Jordan Tate continued her acting career, taking roles in television movies for the next decade. She lives in Los Angeles and volunteers her time as a lifeguard instructor. 
? 
?The death of Commander Krill was not confirmed, though his name suggests his possible fate. 
? 
?The Democratic People's Republic of Korea refuses to believe their stolen submarine was sunk by the ''Missouri''. DPRK representatives routinely petition the UN security council for records and documents connected to the former USNS ''Glomar Explorer''. 
? 
?Further information about the Siege of the ''Missouri'' can be obtained from the Department of Defense by filling out form DD-FU2 at [https://www.notarealwebsite.pfffbt this website].

Player Opinion

Performance

Affectionately called "Mo" or "Big Mo" by some, the Missouri is the game's first tier 9 premium ship that her ergonomics and similarities are shared with her tech tree sister ship Iowa, but with several key differences.

The primary difference is that Missouri carries the Surveillance Radar consumable instead of Catapult Fighter. 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, as the radar allows her to penetrate their smoke screens and catch them off guard with a well-aimed salvo of armor penetrating shells. Other than the radar, her other combat characteristics are similar to Iowa, with her powerful super-heavy AP rounds, high speed, high citadel, and good anti-aircraft suite.

Missouri’s other significant difference from Iowa is her status as a premium ship. This means she earns extremely large amounts of credits — 1 million credits per match with a premium account is easily achievable in an average-to-good battle, with 1.5 to 2 million credits being possible if all modifiers are stacked in a really good battle — and experience, as well as being able to train American ship captains. The only downside to Missouri is her 750,000 Free experience cost, which equates to 30,000 doubloons to convert, making her extremely expensive. Whether she is worth this cost is up to individual captains.

LittleWhiteMouse's Premium Ship Review: Missouri from the NA forums


Pros:

  • Shares the same pros as Iowa.
  • Improved forward bulkhead protection over Iowa.
  • Has access to the Surveillance Radar consumable, active for 35 seconds with a 9.45 km range.
  • Very good at making credits. A typical match with all credit modifiers and premium time can bring about earnings close to, if not sitting on, a million credits on a good run

Cons:

  • Shares the same cons as Iowa.
  • Very high ship price: requires 750,000 free XP which also equates to 30,000 doubloons if one chooses to convert their ship XP's.
  • Unable to mount catapult aircraft

Research

As a premium ship, Missouri doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

Missouri, being a Tier IX premium battleship, has full access to all six slots that her sister ship Iowa has. That said, the recommended upgrades for Missouri are similar choices. Main Armaments Modification 1 is as usual the prime choice for Upgrade Slot 1, and either Artillery Plotting Room Modification 1 or AA Guns Modification 2 are strong choices for Upgrade Slot 2. For Upgrade Slot 3, there are three viable choices of Artillery Plotting Room Modification 2 for improved accuracy, Main Battery Modification 3 for improved rate of fire at a cost of turret traverse speed, or AA Guns Modification 3 for even more potent AA firepower. Damage Control System Modification 1 is the best for Upgrade Slot 4, while Upgrade Slot 5 is another viable three-way choice between Damage Control System Modification 2 for improved surviveability, and Propulsion Modification 2 or Steering Gears Modification 2, which both offer improved handling. Finally, Concealment System Modification 1 is, in most cases, the best choice for Upgrade Slot 6.

Commander Skills

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.

Just like the Upgrades mentioned above, the Commander Skills can be specialized to confer to a particular build/play-style. For Tier 1, captains have two solid choices in Basics of Survivability and Basic Firing Training. It is advised to pick either one with the first point, and the other with the 16th point. For Tier 2, Expert Marksman is the best choice. Tier 3 presents a few good choices. Captains could take High Alert as it synergizes well with Damage Control Party; conversely, they could take Superintendent in order to have extra charges of Surveillance Radar and Repair Party. Alternately, captains could opt for Vigilance in order to offset for the cost of not having any kind of aerial help to detect oncoming torpedoes early. For Tier 4, Advanced Firing Training is the best choice, but Manual Fire Control for AA is an option to buff the already-potent AA on the Missouri (or take Demo Expert to increase the fire chance of her high explosive shells), or Concealment Expert to reduce her already excellent detection ratings even further.


Consumables

One of Missouri’s key differences between herself and Iowa is found in her consumables: Missouri has no Catapult Fighter or Spotting Aircraft, instead having Surveillance Radar. As Missouri is a high-tier battleship with excellent money-making capabilities, it is strongly recommended to take Damage Control Party II, Repair Party II and Surveillance Radar II at all times.

Camouflage

As a premium ship, Missouri comes included with Type 10 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, and increases the amount of experience she earns. It should be noted that Missouri has two different Type 10 camouflage schemes to choose from; the only difference between them is their appearance. Furthermore, both Type 10 camouflage provides a 100% bonus to experience earned in battle, not the usual 50%.
