1) Iowa class. Great lines, actually fired in anger, last of the BB's.
2) Essex class. Won the war in the Pacific, never sank in battle, had two of them nearly destroyed but survived, and a great example of American manufacturing might back in the day.

1. DKM Bismarck/DKM Scharnhorst/HMS Warspite - 3 way tie

2. USS Enterprise CV-6, all time favorite ship

3. HMS Norfolk, USS Newport News

4. USS Constitution - age of sail, USS O'Bannon, HMS Electra
