USS Tennessee was the lead ship of the Tennessee class of dreadnought battleships built for the United States Navy in the 1910s. Preceding the New Mexico class the Tennessee class were a series of twelve battleships built in the 1910s & 1920s. Much of her construction was based on the lessons learned during the Battle of Jutland in WWI.

Armament consisted of 4 x triple 14-inch guns, 14 x single 5-inch guns, 4 x single 3-inch guns & 2 x 21-inch torpedo tubes.

USS Tennessee spent the duration of her peacetime career serving in the Pacific Fleet & participated in routine fleet training exercises as well as sailing around the Americas & visits to Australia & New Zealand in 1925.

At the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour on 7th December 1941 she was moored at Battle Ship Row but escaped major damage. After repairs Tennessee along with many older battleships were rebuilt to preparer for future operations in the war in the Pacific.
