?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. +Affectionately referred to as "Big Mo" by her crew while she was on active duty, ''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 several key differences.
  
?The primary difference is that ''Missouri'' carries the [[Ship:Consumables#Surveillance Radar|Surveillance Radar]] consumable instead of [[Ship:Consumables#Catapult Fighter|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. +The primary difference is that ''Missouri'' carries the [[Ship:Consumables#Surveillance Radar|Surveillance Radar]] consumable instead of [[Ship:Consumables#Catapult Fighter|Catapult Fighter]].

 ''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 [[Doubloon_Economy_(WoWS)#Free_Experience_.28XP.29|Free experience]] cost, which equates to 30,000 [[Doubloon_Economy_(WoWS)#Doubloons|doubloons]] to convert, making her extremely expensive. Whether she is worth this cost is up to individual captains. ''Missouri''’s other significant difference from ''Iowa'' is her status as a premium ship.

 ====Design==== ====Design====
?The ''Iowa''-class battleships were designed in 1938 when the Navy proposed a new class of battleships that were to develop on the lessons learned from the development and construction of the ''[[North Carolina]]''-class and ''South Dakota''-class of battleships. With a “loosening” of the restrictions imposed by the Washington and London Naval Treaties of the 1920s and 30s, the designers were encouraged to improve the fundamental aspects of the new design: the propulsion, the armament, and the armor. Furthermore, with the onset of World War II, another threat emerged: the battleships of the Imperial Japanese Navy. Of exceptional concern was the construction of the ''[[Yamato]]''-class battleships. Wishing to have an apt and equal response, the construction of the ''Iowa''-class was approved. +The ''Iowa''-class battleships were designed in 1938 when the Navy proposed a new class of battleships that were to develop on the lessons learned from the development and construction of the ''[[North Carolina]]''-class and ''South Dakota''-class of battleships.

?With the emergence of Aircraft Carriers, and the need to protect them from surface threats, the concept of “fast-battleships” came into prominence; ships designed with the speed and the endurance to keep pace with Carrier groups, and serve as a major deterrent to surface attack. To fulfill this role, the design called for a top speed of 33 knots from 8 boilers connected to 4 turbines; each turbine to a propeller shaft. This layout produced a total of 230,000 shaft horsepower. Furthermore, the ship had a greater waterline length-to-beam ratio, making the ship longer than its predecessors, and as well faster. +With the emergence of aircraft carriers and the need to protect them from surface threats, the concept of “fast battleships” came into prominence; ships designed with the speed and the endurance to keep pace with carrier groups and serve as a major deterrent to surface attack.

This layout produced a total of 230,000 shaft horsepower. Furthermore, the ship had a greater waterline length-to-beam ratio, making the ship longer than its predecessors, as well as notably faster.
  
?The main armament of the ''Iowa''-class, while using rifles of the same diameter of 406mm as preceding ships, were longer than the rifles on the ''South Dakota''-class (increased from 45 calibers to 50 calibers) and therefore have the designation of the largest rifles mounted on any US warship to-date. This increase in rifle length allows for the use of greater powder charge, which equates to higher muzzle velocity, greater range, and greater armor-penetration capabilities than preceding rifles. Furthermore, the ''Iowa''-class had a comprehensive suite of secondary and anti-aircraft guns, due to the design emphasis of increased protection against air attacks; the armament systems were supplemented with state-of-the-art radar-based fire control systems (the ''Missouri'' mounting the Mark 27 Fire Control Radar set). +The main armament of the ''Iowa'' class while using rifles of the same diameter of 406mm as preceding ships were longer than the rifles on the ''South Dakota''-class (increased from 45 calibers to 50 calibers) and therefore have the distinction of being the largest rifles mounted on any US warship to date.

?The ''Iowa''-class battleships have the characteristic “all-or-nothing” armor scheme seen in other American battleships, with the thickest armor around the citadel between Turret 1 and Turret 3. The side armor of 304mm was angled at 19-degrees inwards in order to confer greater armor thickness for no change in weight; this was especially advantageous against plunging shells. This arrangement guaranteed protection from shells fired from similar 406mm rifles from ranges between 16,000-27,000m. Most of the other parameters, such as torpedo bulkheads, were of similar design as seen in the ''South Dakota-class''. A note of interest on the ''Missouri'': she had the thickest forward bulkhead armor of the class, 355mm worth, to prevent on-coming fire; a consideration when facing enemies bow-on. +The ''Iowa''-class battleships had the characteristic “all-or-nothing” armor scheme seen in preceding American battleships, with the thickest armor around the citadel between Turrets A and Turret C.

Player Opinion

Performance

Affectionately referred to as "Big Mo" by her crew while she was on active duty, 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 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 and Mikhail Kutuzov, 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 powerful super-heavy AP rounds, high speed, 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 good match with all credit modifiers and premium time can bring earnings of a million or credits more.

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

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%.
