Description Although there are no active battleships in any navy as of 1992, the United States Navy still maintained for a decade and a half two mothballed battleships—Iowa and Wisconsin—(the latter berthed at the Nauticus National Maritime Centre in Norfolk, VA) and could recommission one or both of them if needed. Since the 1950s the United States battle doctrine has called for air superiority, which clearly favors the aircraft carrier, but other weapons such as guided missile ships and destroyers also play a significant role. In May, 2006, Wisconsin and Iowa were stricken from the Naval Vessels Registar and placed on donation hold for use as museum ships.
