History:

Among the world's remaining battleships, Texas is notable for being the only remaining dreadnought battleship, though she is not the oldest surviving battleship; Mikasa, a pre-dreadnought battleship ordered in 1898, is older than Texas. She is also noteworthy for being one of only six remaining ships to have served in both World Wars.[16][A 1] Among US-built battleships, Texas is notable for her sizable number of firsts: the first US Navy vessel to house a permanently assigned contingent of US Marines, the first US battleship to mount anti-aircraft guns, the first US ship to control gunfire with directors and range-keepers (analog forerunners of today's computers), the first US battleship to launch an aircraft from a catapult on Turret 3,[17] one of the first to receive the CXAM-1 version of CXAM production radar in the US Navy, the first US battleship to become a permanent museum ship,[A 3][17] and the first battleship declared to be a US National Historic Landmark.

She served mainly in the Atlantic during the was in Operation Torch and Operation Overlord. On D-Day she along with Arkansas and Nevada shelled German positions. She was later transferred to the Pacific and participated in bombardment and landing operations at Iwo Jima.

Basically this is a 100 point fleet ship. At 30 points you still have plenty of room for another battleship if you want. There is a class limit of two but Arkansas can make three easily.
