Depicted is the USS Massachusetts being refueled in the far east by a T2 Tanker. The Massachusetts was part of the South Dakota-class, a class build to combat the German Bismarck-class.

She was the seventh ship of the United States Navy to be named in honor of the sixth state, and one of two ships of her class (along with her sister Alabama) to be donated for use as a museum ship. Among the ships armed with 16 inch guns during World War II, Massachusetts stands out because it is believed that she fired the US Navy’s first and last 16 in (410 mm) shells of the war.
