USS Colorado in late WW2 guise after extensive modernisation: lead ship of the third class of US dreadnoughts (the first to mount 16 in guns), she was fortunate to be absent from Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941.  Her eventful Pacific War career included two kamikaze strikes in November 1944.  She was scrapped in 1947.
