In February of 1922, the world’s leading countries signed a treaty in Washington to limit naval armament. Eight years later, the treaty was extended in London. According to these treaties, the signing countries could start building new battleships no earlier than 1935. This period of naval history is known as the “-building holiday.”
However, work on ship projects didn’t stop. In 1928, the U.S. Secretary of the Navy raised the issue of designing new battleships. By the time the “battleship-building holiday” ended, the U.S.A. had reviewed 38 projects, each designated with a Roman numeral and a letter. In 1937, a single project was selected, according to which the construction of battleships and Washington would later start, while the other projects were archived.

    It looks like a decent ship to have, especially the gun accuracy! Good A/A sefence is also an added bonus!

    • it does not, less health than dunkerque, absolute shit reload time and meh AA.

    • @Kyle Jackson Well, you have a right to your opinion but the feedback I am getting from other players in the game who have it, is that they are getting good battle results and they enjoy playing it, mostly due to the damage potential those 12 accurate guns have in the game. And the A/A defence rating beats same tier ships like Atlanta and Gneis so even though no A/A in the current CV meta is foolproof, I still would not call it meh…

  4. FLORIDA MAN STEALS THUNDERER DISPERSION, BRINGS IT TO TIER SEVEN

    POLICE STILL BAFFLED

  5. How many sniping BBs do you want?
    WG: Yes

  6. God this ship is amazing already love playing the hell out of it.

  7. Would be nice if the ship named after your state would get a discount.

      @LightningwingDragon “And also it breaks those internet laws regarding anyone under the age of thirteen.”
      How? If you play by the EULA of Wargaming you accepted, there should be no player in World of Warships who is younger than thirteen.
      Ofc, if you break the EULA….
      Anyway the game is worldwide, not just USA exist on the world, so giving such a discount to US states would be unfair to the majority of the playerbase, as from the 4 region, US is the 3rd. Only SEA server has smaller or same amount of players.
      To be correct, since the Asia server grown in 2020, NA server has the smallest avg playerbase this year. So the discount would be realy unfair.

      I’d love to get my hands on a Missouri!

    • LibraeotequeVer3 PointOh

      Florida is a tourist trap.

    • North Carolinian Mapping

      Ah yes

    • That would be the only way I’d be able to get the Arkansas now and I would take it.

  8. The best friend to Florida is King George the 5th. 14inch guns,4 gun turrets,good speed. It’s a perfect fit

  9. Therapist: Baguette North Carolina BB doesnt exist, it cannot hurt you

    Baguette North Carolina:

  10. I am getting this ship purely for nostalgia reasons. Once upon a time in 2013-2015 the forums were flooded with navel designs that players just begged to be included in game. Hipper with 150cm guns, Kitakami with 40 torpedoes, Mogador, H-44, Stalingrad, etc etc. A North Carolina with quad gun turrets was one of those proposed designs, and let me tell you it’s a dream come true to see it finally arrive in World of Warships!

    I mean it’s the little things, you know? While I am indifferent with the chosen play-style (because it’s a NC at T7, I expected as much), I’m sure I can make it work given my years of exp. playing this game. To top it off, they named it after a very popular state here in the U.S. (I’ve got some family there, fun place!). So yeah, good ideas all around releasing this one Devs, thank you!

  11. USS Florida : the french BB’s turret stoler

  12. This looks like a french BB

  13. *Loads up Gneisenau’s 380s and topedos* hmm tempting

  14. “We don’t advise approaching enemy ships at close range and showing broadside..”
    Can attest to this as I got a devastating strike on one with the Roma at 13km two nights ago lol.

  15. French BB: *exists*

    USS Florida: Hippity hoppity your turrets are my property

    • USA when they create their own Technology:
      *My Technology*

      USA When Other nation Create New Technology:
      *OUR Technology*

  16. Meanwhile North Carolina’s Bofors mounts are still missing their armor plating.

  17. “fight enemy aviation single-handedly” are you drunk wargaming? or just morons?

  18. Ah yes, Massachussetts and Jean Bart’s love child

  19. WG: Florida has good AA
    CVs: I am 4 parallel universes ahead of you
