Commissioned in 1895 the Texas was meant to incorporate the latest developments in naval tactics and design. This includes the mounting of her main armament en-echelon to allow maximum end-on fire and a heavily-armored redoubt amidships to ensure defensive strength. However, Texas's building time was lengthy, and by the time she was commissioned, she was already out of date. Nevertheless, she and her near-sister USS Maine were considered advancements in American naval design. The Texas saw service in the Spanish-American War participating in the Battle of Santiago de Cuba.
