Naval Legends: USS Texas | World of Warships



One of the last remaining dreadnoughts in the world is the American Texas battleship. With the help of the archival wartime newsreels and CG animation, we will tell the viewers about the most important points on the battle path of the veteran ship: covering the Normandy landings, artillery duel against the Hamburg battery, and supporting the Iwo Jima invasion.

It’s time for Episode Two of our documentary series: Naval Legends. This time, learn the fascinating story of the USS Texas – a truly battle-hardened legend of naval warfare that took part in many significant operations in 20th century seafaring combat.

Naval Legends is a series about the construction, service, and daring deeds of legendary 20th-century ships.

    Given recent events in the world and the possible Secession of the State of Texas, The USS Texas, being over a hundred years old, might be recommissioned into navel service once more to serve as the flag ship of the possible sovereign nation.

    Been to see her several times. There is a old foto, pre digital, of me straddling one of the main guns. I look like the size of a ant in the foto. Lol She is awesome. I say Texas should modernize her and put her to work in the Gulf of Mexico. 🤠

    That flooding of the tank to achieve a steeper firing angle is the stuff off legend.

    I have been on this ship about 5 times and as soon as the virus calms down and we canngo to places you can bet I am making that number 6

  15. Titanic Lover115 says:

    The state of Texas needs to take care of there ship better

  16. 10:38 Texas should have a special ability in-game where you can flood some compartments which would make a firing range circle into an oval shape: you can fire further when firing broadside. The negative effect would be that of course, the ship would be partially flooded so some of your HP would be "put into depository", meaning that while having this effect activated, you'd have less health and can be sunk quicker, but if your turn off the effect, you'd get back that HP.

  17. Brian Berthold says:

    the USN should really put some money into this ship along with USA (Congress and House) i mean really shes the last of her kind in the world AND is on the National Register

  18. Brian Berthold says:

    this ship was in the first group of ships i bought along with the Arizona

  19. Chris Cristo says:

    'Texas' looks like the imperial destroyers from Star Wars. I wonder where George Lucas got the design idea from. Nevertheless, 'Texas' has a state of the art design and it looks intimidating enough to scare the shit out her enemies. Her crew must've been in love with and very proud of her.

  20. Gary Hunter says:

    Its a shame guns are rusting, and below deck are rusting. Texas should be sure the OLD TEXAS Battle Ship should be taken care of.

  21. <<All slow ahead, flood the aft trim tanks>>
    <<But sir, the ship will sink aft first>>
    <<AND THAT WILL GIVE THE GUN THE ELEVATION IT NEEDS! HUHEHEHEHEHE!>>

  22. James the space marine says:

    The triple expansion engines had a tendency to shake themselves apart at top speed
