?Affectionately referred to as "Big 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. +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 Radar}} consumable instead of {{Spotting Aircraft}} or {{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 Tier VIII premium ''[[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. 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.  The primary difference is that ''Missouri'' carries the {{Surveillance Radar}} consumable instead of {{Spotting Aircraft}} or {{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 [[Ship:Economy#Free_Experience_.28XP.29|Free experience]] cost, which equates to 30,000 [[Ship:Economy#Doubloons|doubloons]] to convert, making her extremely expensive. Whether she is worth this cost is up to individual captains, but few players who have invested in her regret the decision. +''Missouri''’s other significant difference from ''Iowa'' is her status as a premium ship.

 The recommended upgrades for ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' are as follows: The recommended upgrades for ''{{#var:ship_name}}'' are as follows:
?* '''Slot 1''': [[Ship:Upgrades#Main_Armaments_Modification.C2.A01|Main Armaments Modification 1]]<nowiki>*</nowiki>+* '''Slot 1:''' This slot is most commonly filled with {{Main Armaments Modification 1}}, though {{Auxiliary Armaments Modification 1}} is a popular pick for captains who go for a full AA build with other upgrades and commander skills.
?* '''Slot 2''': [[Ship:Upgrades#AA_Guns_Modification.C2.A02|AA Guns Modification 2]]+* '''Slot 2:''' There's really one choice for battleships here: {{Damage Control System Modification 1}}. This will reduce chances of fire and flood.
?* '''Slot 3''': [[Ship:Upgrades#Artillery_Plotting_Room_Modification_2|Artillery Plotting Room Modification 2]]+* '''Slot 3:''' There are several good options to pick from. {{AA Guns Modification 1}} will boost her AA strength, while {{Secondary Battery Modification 2}} will boost the range and accuracy of secondaries instead. {{Artillery Plotting Room Modification 1}} will increase range and give secondaries a slight boost in range and accuracy, but may be a weaker choice than the other two.
?* '''Slot 4''': [[Ship:Upgrades#Damage_Control_System_Modification.C2.A01|Damage Control System Modification 1]]+* '''Slot 4:''' {{Steering Gears Modification 2}} is recommended and will reduce rudder shift time. Captains with fire problems could also consider {{Damage Control System Modification 2}}, reducing the amount of time on fire and conserving hit points.
?* '''Slot 5''': [[Ship:Upgrades#Damage_Control_System_Modification.C2.A02|Damage Control System Modification 2]]<nowiki>*</nowiki>+* '''Slot 5:''' Maximizing stealth is never a bad choice. With the Concealment Expert commander skill, {{Concealment System Modification 1}}, and appropriate camouflage, this ship can choose when to engage the enemy.
?* '''Slot 6''': [[Ship:Upgrades#Target_Acquisition_System_Modification.C2.A01|Target Acquisition System Modification 1]]<nowiki>*</nowiki>+* '''Slot 6:''' The recommended choice is {{Artillery Plotting Room Modification 2}} to give guns more accuracy; this will make it so that at ranges of ~12-13 kilometers, the battleship is exceptionally accurate, much more so than contemporaries. {{Main Battery Modification 3}} will improve damage-per-minute, and may surprise a cruiser who still expects the battleship to be reloading.
  
 +|CommanderSkills=<!-- write text about best set of Commander Skills below -->
 +Just like the Upgrades mentioned above, the Commander Skills can be specialized to confer to a particular build/play-style. For Level 1, the recommended pick is Priority Target; Preventative Maintenance can also reduce the chance of critical modules — such as engines and turrets — getting disabled despite critical damage. At Level 2, High Alert, Adrenaline Rush or Expert Marksman are the best choices available; High Alert is recommended for captains more focused on the traditional survivability build for battleships.
  
?Most Tier IX+ ships have some variance based on '''Upgrade Slot 3''', but ''Missouri'', ''[[Iowa]]'', and ''[[Montana]]'' are the only ships in the game with access to Artillery Plotting Room Modification 2; the significant buff to their accuracy provided by this upgrade simply outclasses anything else available for the slot. Captains who are sensitive to preserving the quality of their anti-aircraft suite will frequently equip [[Ship:Upgrades#Auxiliary_Armaments_Modification.C2.A01|Auxiliary Armaments Modification 1]] in '''Upgrade Slot 1''' instead of Main Armaments Modification 1. Some captains prefer [[Ship:Upgrades#Steering_Gears_Modification.C2.A02|Steering Gears Modification 2]] in '''Upgrade Slot 5''' to improve ''Missouri''’s handling and rudder responsiveness, while captains who have eschewed a stealth build for their ''Missouri'' will want to install [[Ship:Upgrades#Target_Acquisition_System_Modification.C2.A01|Target Acquisition System Modification 1]] in '''Upgrade Slot 6''' in order to improve their ability to detect and dodge torpedoes sooner. +Level 3 presents a number of good options. Superintendent is an excellent pick in order to have extra charges of {{Surveillance Radar}} and {{Repair Party}}; Basics of Survivability will reduce the impact of fires and floods and keep ''Missouri'' in the game longer, which is virtually mandatory if taking {{Steering Gears Modification 2}} in Slot 4 for upgrades, as the bonuses are exactly the same as {{Damage Control System Modification 2}}, helping offset the downsides of not taking it in the first place. Vigilance helps offset ''Missouri''’s lack of aerial help in detecting incoming torpedoes, and will offset the biggest disadvantage for captains choosing {{Damage Control System Modification 2}} over {{Steering Gears Modification 2}}, which is dodging torpedoes with her relatively bad rudder shift; Basic Firing Training makes an already punishing AA suite even more so. For Level 4, Advanced Firing Training is the best choice, and Manual Fire Control for AA is an option for her already-potent anti-aircraft suite. Captains could also invest in Concealment Expert to reduce her already excellent detection ratings even further, or Fire Prevention in order to minimize the amount of fires and fire damage ''Missouri'' will suffer.

?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 ''[[Ship:Alabama|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 U.S. 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 ''[[Ship:Alabama|South Dakota]]''-class of battleships. Of exceptional concern were the ''Kongo''-class battleships that were able to use speed to harass convoys and outgun fast aircraft carrier escorts, as well as the refusal of Japan to disclose details regarding the construction of the ''[[Yamato]]''-class battleships. Wishing to have an apt and equal response, the construction of the ''Iowa''-class was approved. These factors culminated in the U.S., Britain, and France invoking the "Escalator Clause" of the second naval treaty, which permitted 16-inch guns and 45,000 long tons standard displacement.
  
 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, as well as notably 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.

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 distinction of being the largest rifles mounted on any US warship to date. This increase in rifle length allowed for the use of greater powder charge, which equated 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 (''Missouri'' mounted 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. This increase in rifle length resulted in greater distance for expanding gases in the chamber to propel the projectile, which equated to higher muzzle velocity, greater range, and greater armor-penetration capabilities than preceding rifles.

?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. The side armor of 307mm was angled at 19-degrees inwards in order to confer greater armor thickness for no change in weight; this was especially advantageous against shells from longer range. The armor scheme of the ''Iowa''-class was largely the same as the preceding ''South Dakota''-class, which offered protection from 406mm/45 rifles firing 1,016 kg Mark 5 shells from ranges between 16,000 - 27,000 meters. Most of the other parameters, such as torpedo bulkheads, were of similar design as seen in the ''South Dakota'' class. As the second pair of ''Iowa''-class battleships built, ''Missouri'' and ''Wisconsin'' had some armor differences from the first pair: forward bulkhead armor thickness increased to 368mm to better protect against head-on rounds. This is noteworthy when facing enemies bow-on in World of Warships. +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. The outer hull plate was 38mm Special Treatment Steel (STS) and the side armor of 307mm was angled at 19-degrees inwards in order to confer greater armor thickness for little additional weight; this was especially advantageous against shells from longer range. The hull has a triple bottom under the citadel to protect against underbottom explosions. The armor scheme of the ''Iowa'' class was largely the same as the preceding ''South Dakota'' class, which offered protection from 406mm/45 rifles firing 1,016 kg Mark 5 shells from ranges between 16,000 - 27,000 meters.

 USS ''Missouri'' was the third ship of the ''Iowa''-class, laid down at the Brooklyn Naval Yard on 6 January 1941, launched on 29 January 1944, and after a few months of sea trials, commissioned on 11 June 1944. ''Missouri'' has the distinction of being the last battleship commissioned into the US Navy.  USS ''Missouri'' was the third ship of the ''Iowa''-class, laid down at the Brooklyn Naval Yard on 6 January 1941, launched on 29 January 1944, and after a few months of sea trials, commissioned on 11 June 1944.

One of the Iowa-class battleships that were the fastest ships of this type in the world. She carried very powerful main battery guns, and boasted excellent AA defense and reliable torpedo protection.

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.

Player Opinion

Performance

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 Radar (While active, detects all enemy ships within the specified radius, disregarding obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) consumable instead of Spotting Aircraft (While active, a spotter plane circles the ship enhancing main battery firing range.) or Catapult Fighter (While 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 Tier VIII premium 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. 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 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, but few players who have invested in her regret the decision.


Pros:

  • Shares the same pros as Iowa.
  • Improved forward bulkhead protection over Iowa.
  • Has access to the Surveillance Radar (While 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.
  • 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 experience.
  • Unable to mount either Spotting Aircraft (While active, a spotter plane circles the ship enhancing main battery firing range.) or Catapult Fighter (While 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.

Research

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

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Missouri are as follows:

Commander Skills

Just like the Upgrades mentioned above, the Commander Skills can be specialized to confer to a particular build/play-style. For Level 1, the recommended pick is Priority Target; Preventative Maintenance can also reduce the chance of critical modules — such as engines and turrets — getting disabled despite critical damage. At Level 2, High Alert, Adrenaline Rush or Expert Marksman are the best choices available; High Alert is recommended for captains more focused on the traditional survivability build for battleships.

Level 3 presents a number of good options. Superintendent is an excellent pick in order to have extra charges of Surveillance Radar (While active, detects all enemy ships within the specified radius, disregarding obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) and Repair Party (While active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second.); Basics of Survivability will reduce the impact of fires and floods and keep Missouri in the game longer, which is virtually mandatory if taking Steering Gears Modification 1 (Reduces rudder shift time: -20% rudder shift time.) in Slot 4 for upgrades, as the bonuses are exactly the same as Damage Control System Modification 2 (Accelerates fire extinguishing and recovery from flooding: -15% flooding recovery time. / -15% fire duration.), helping offset the downsides of not taking it in the first place. Vigilance helps offset Missouri’s lack of aerial help in detecting incoming torpedoes, and will offset the biggest disadvantage for captains choosing Damage Control System Modification 2 (Accelerates fire extinguishing and recovery from flooding: -15% flooding recovery time. / -15% fire duration.) over Steering Gears Modification 1 (Reduces rudder shift time: -20% rudder shift time.), which is dodging torpedoes with her relatively bad rudder shift; Basic Firing Training makes an already punishing AA suite even more so. For Level 4, Advanced Firing Training is the best choice, and Manual Fire Control for AA is an option for her already-potent anti-aircraft suite. Captains could also invest in Concealment Expert to reduce her already excellent detection ratings even further, or Fire Prevention in order to minimize the amount of fires and fire damage Missouri will suffer.

One of the best builds is Priority Target, Expert Marksman, Adrenaline Rush, Superintendent, Basics of Survivability or Vigilance(depending on upgrades picked in Slot 4) and Fire Prevention and Concealment Expert.

Consumables

Missouri can equip the following consumables:

The major differences between Missouri and Iowa are found in the former's consumables: Missouri has no Catapult Fighter (While active, a group of fighter planes circles the ship providing protection by attacking incoming enemy aircraft.) or Spotting Aircraft (While active, a spotter plane circles the ship enhancing main battery firing range.), but is granted access to Surveillance Radar (While active, detects all enemy ships within the specified radius, disregarding obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) instead. As a high-tier battleship with excellent money-making capabilities, captains are strongly encouraged to equip Damage Control Party (When activated, instantly repairs fires, floods, and incapacitations, and prevents more for the duration.) , Repair Party (While active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second.) and Surveillance Radar (While active, detects all enemy ships within the specified radius, disregarding obstacles such as smoke and terrain.) on their Missouri at all times... she will make more than enough credits back to justify the investment.

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%.

Signals

Missouri’s signal loadout should focus on two objectives: maximizing her credit earnings and maximizing her survivability. Wyvern (+50% credits earned for the battle.), India Bravo Terrathree (-10% to the cost of the ship's post-battle service.), and Zulu (+20% credits earned for the battle.) will help with the former, while 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 the latter. 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.
