Between the mid1940s and early 1990s, a class battleships "Iowa" fought in four major American wars. In World War II they defended aircraft carriers and shelled Japanese positions. During the Korean War, the battleships provided artillery support for the marine of the United Nations forces fighting with North Korea, and in 1968 the battleship "New Jersey" covered the Vietcong forces and the Vietnam People's Army during the Vietnam War. All four ships were reactivated and armed with missiles in the 1980s; during "Operation Desert Storm" in 1991, the battleship "Missouri" and "Wisconsin" fired missiles and 406-mm shells at Iraqi targets.

Costly in the content, battleships were decommissioned in the period after the end of the Cold War in the early 1990s. All four were charged with Naval Ship Register. Nevertheless, the United States Congress has forced the fleet to recover two of them on the grounds because the existing naval support will not be enough to carry out amphibious operations. This led to a long debate over whether there should be a modern fleet of battleships. In the end, all four ships were struck from the Naval Register of ships and donated to non-profit organizations. Along with "Iowa" transfer in 2012, all four battleships entered into various non-profit maritime museum, located in the United States.
