Talk about the vehicle's armour. Note the most well-defended and most vulnerable zones, e.g. the ammo magazine. Evaluate the composition of components and assemblies responsible for movement and manoeuvrability. Evaluate the survivability of the primary and secondary armaments separately. Don't forget to mention the size of the crew, which plays an important role in fleet mechanics. Save tips on preserving survivability for the "Usage in battles" section. If necessary, use a graphical template to show the most well-protected or most vulnerable points in the armour.

An important part of the ship's armament responsible for air defence. Anti-aircraft armament is defined by the weapon chosen with the control Select anti-aircraft weapons. Talk about the ship's anti-air cannons and machine guns, the number of guns and their positions, their effective range, and about their overall effectiveness – including against surface targets. If there are no anti-aircraft armaments, remove this section.

Usage in battles

Describe the technique of using this ship, the characteristics of her use in a team and tips on strategy. Abstain from writing an entire guide – don't try to provide a single point of view, but give the reader food for thought. Talk about the most dangerous opponents for this vehicle and provide recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of playing with this vehicle in various modes (AB, RB, SB).

History

The first wartime mission undertaken by the USS Wyoming was on February 6, 1918, in which the battleship was to escort a convey to Stavanger, Norway. The mission was a success, apart from the false alarm of German U-boats. Wyoming patrolled in the North Sea for the next few months, watching for a sortie by the German High Seas Fleet. On 30 June, Wyoming and the rest of the 6th Battle Squadron conducted a minelaying operation in the North Sea until the July 2. In December of the same year, the USS Wyoming was carrying Woodrow Wilson to the peace negotiations in Paris. During the interwar years, the battleship was demilitarized and primarily used as a training ship by the US Navy.

In the Second World War, the battleship was also used as a testing ground for new technology (such as new fire control systems). The Navy had considered reverting the USS Wyoming back to its former battleship state, though they decided against the plan. The USS Wyoming was decommissioned following the second World War on August 1st, 1946.
