USS Oklahoma 26 months after sinking. In 1947 she was being towed from Hawaii to SanFrancisco to be scrapped and the two tugs encountered a storm. The ship took on water and sank rapidly almost taking one of the tugs with her. Oklahoma's final resting place is unknown to this day.

Wisconsin (BB-64) tied up alongside the Oklahoma (BB-37) at Pearl Harbor. The size of the Iowa class can be readily seen when compared with the earlier classes. The Oklahoma is over 300 feet smaller and 18,000 tons lighter than the Wisconsin, which seems to dwarf her, 11 November 1944.

Pre-war picture of 14 in battleship USS Nevada, taken from an observation balloon tethered to her - date unknown. She is best known for being the only battleship to get under way during the Pearl Harbor attack of 7 December 1941, having to be beached to prevent her sinking, but returning to service much modernised to serve with distinction in both Europe and the Pacific.
