The USS Texas was and is a New York class Dreadnought that served in both world wars and at the time of her completion, was the most powerful warship afloat for a short time being. Launched in 1912 and commissioned in 1914, she now rests in her own dedicated dock in Houston Texas where she now serves as a museum ship. Through her long years of service, she saw much action an accomplished many feats as listed below:

-First US battleship to launch an aircraft

-First US Battleship to mount AA armament

-Used a revolutionary Reciprocating steam engine

-She was the first US battleship to control gunfire with directors and range keepers

-Through her service career, she only had one crew member die serving on her. His name was Christen Christensen. He perished when a German artillery shell exploded in the conning tower as the Texas was participating in the battle of Cherbourg.

To this date, Texas is the last remaining dreadnought battleship in the world. but she needs your help. time has made it to where she is now having holes form in her hull under water causing her to take on large amounts of water. there are currently plans to put her in a permanent dry dock, but funds are low.
