Quotes[edit | edit source]

Event Japanese English Note
Introduction
私の名前は、Houston。
太平洋方面の戦力の要石として、アジア艦隊の旗艦も務めたわ。
提督、よろしく頼むわね。
Library
アジア艦隊に配備されたNorthampton級重巡、Houstonよ。
Perth、De Ruyter…彼女達と共にABDA艦隊として戦ったの。
私の記憶はバタビア沖が最後だけど……その魂と名は、新型軽巡に継承されたわ。
I'm Houston, the Northampton-class heavy cruiser assigned to the Asiatic Fleet. I fought alongside Perth, De Ruyter, and the other girls as the ABDA Fleet. The last thing I remember was being off Batavia, but my soul and name lived on in a new light cruiser. ABDA sent the mentioned cruisers and two more, HMS Exeter and HNLMS Java, to protect Java island - all were lost within days, in the Java Sea or Sunda Strait. USS Houston (CA-30) was succeeded by Cleveland-class USS Houston (CL-81).
Secretary 1
大丈夫、準備に抜かりはないわ。 Don't worry, we haven't forgotten to prepare anything.
Secretary 2
多国籍艦隊は...少し大変。しっかり行きましょう。 Being part of a multinational fleet is somewhat rough. We must persevere. ABDA (American-British-Dutch-Australian) Command was formed in response to the Japanese invasion of Allied territories. The fleets had not trained together and had different priorities. ABDA effectively ceased to exist within three months.
Secretary 3
提督、落ち着きが無いようです。どうされましたか? ABDAコマンドでの作戦会議ですか? 違う?...え?重巡装備の改修について? それは興味深いですね。私も参加させてください。ええ、是非! Admiral, you seem uneasy. Has something happened? Was there a strategy meeting at ABDA Command? No? Hm? Something about improvements for heavy cruiser equipment? That is very intriguing. Please let me participate as well. Yes, by all means.
Idle
提督は、忙しそうね。この間に、ABDA fleet合同作戦会議をやっておきましょうか。Perth、De Ruyter、みんな、いいかしら?
Secretary Married
提督、お疲れでは? coffeeを淹れましょう。熱いの、待っていてください。パンケーキも焼きましょうか。私のは美味しいのよ。少し待っていて。 Admiral, are you tired? I'll pour you some coffee. It's hot, please let it cool. Shall I make some pancakes as well? Mine are delicious. Wait just a moment.
Wedding
提督....これは?私の戦功が?...違う?気持ち?...提督が?光栄です提督。謹んで、お受けします...! Admiral, is this? For my service? No? Feelings? Yours? I'm honored, Admiral. I'll humbly accept it.
Looking At Scores
Information? 了解よ。

Character[edit | edit source]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

  • The thing on the front of her USN officer cap is a gun director that sits on top of her fire control platform on her foremast.
  • Her base CG colors represent her prewar light gray (almost white) paint scheme. Her kai CG colors consisted of light gray and an improvised ocean gray (cavite gray), the one she had during her final days.
  • In her damaged CG, her number 3 turret is damaged in reference to the damage she sustained from a Japanese air attack that disabled her number 3 turret.
  • The ribbon around her collar is a Presidential Unit Citation that was awarded to her.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Work started on her in May 1928, and she was commissioned on 17th June 1930.
  • Served as a Presidential Yacht several times during the 30s, carrying Roosevelt for various trips.
  • At the beginning of America's entry to the war she was attached to the US Asiatic Fleet, the heaviest ship available in the region.
  • As the Allies fell back she joined the multi-nation ABDACOM fleet, a motley collection of ships to try and delay the Japanese invasion.
  • Her first mission was the Battle of Makassar Strait, an attempt to intercept a Japanese transport fleet, however they were driven off by airpower and forced to retreat. During this battle she took a bomb hit which rendered the rear turret inoperable.
  • The biggest action of the campaign was the Battle of Java Sea. Houston scored no known hits and was forced to retreat with the rest of the remaining allies. Following this disaster, she and Perth attempted to flee to the safety of Australia, but stumbled into the Japanese invasion force in the Sunda Strait and both ships were overwhelmed and lost. Houston managed to sink a minesweeper in the battle, but unfortunately as she was sinking, fire continued to be directed at her. This resulted in the killing of several of her crew as they abandoned ship.
