West Virginia was completed in 1923. During naval exercises in 1930s, she performed very well and won several awards. West Virginia was hit by multiple torpedoes and bombs during the Pearl Harbour attack and was severely damaged. However, she received complete repair and modernisation at Puget Sound Naval Yard. Advanced AA guns and radar gave her a fresh new look. West Virginia participated in the Battle of Philippines in 1944. During the Battle of Surigao Strait, she had her revenge on the enemy fleet using their main guns together with her sister ships.

A shining ring. I will keep it safely...not gonna give it away to anyone!
The Colorado-Class were distinguished by their hexagonal turrets (you can also see it from the illu of her equipment). The illu of ships in the class, however, did not display such characteristic. The illustrator 12cat explained that he had corrected the illu and submitted it to Moefantasy. Since the dispute between Moefantasy and Patch has not been settled yet, the mistake still exists.
