USS Iowa (BB 61) - the lead ship of her class of battleship and the fourth in the United States Navy to be named in honor of the 29th state. Owing to the cancellation of the Montana-class battleships, Iowa is the last lead ship of any class of US battleships and was the only ship of her class to have served in the Atlantic Ocean during World War II. Launched 1942, decommissioned, for last time, 1990.
