USS Tennessee, the lead ship in her class, was commissioned in 1920. A Pearl Harbor survivor, she underwent two modernizations that significantly changed her appearance. During the Pacific War, USS Tennessee took part in numerous operations including the Battle of Surigao Strait and the Iwo Jima and Okinawa landings. The battleship received ten battle stars during her service.

Key Features

  • Main Battery: Twelve 356mm guns with excellent accuracy, fast reload, and long range.
  • Speed: Slow turret traverse and top speed, typical of American standard-type battleships.
  • Hit points: Smaller hit point pool for a Tier VIII battleship but good concealment.
  • Consumables: Long-duration Damage Control Party, quick cooldown Repair Party, and choice of Fighter or Spotting Aircraft.


  • Long Range and Accuracy: Once in position, Tennessee’s long-range and accurate salvos can effectively punish enemy broadsides.
  • Team Support: It’s crucial to stay close to teammates. Without support, Tennessee’s low speed and hit point pool make her vulnerable.
  • Key Areas: Identify key areas on the map to maximize your firing range and impact.
