USS Alabama (BB-60) is a retired battleship. She was the fourth and final member of the South Dakota class of fast battleships built for the United States Navy in the 1940s.

After entering service in 1942, the Alabama was deployed to protect convoys in the Atlantic Ocean. In 1943, she was transferred to the Pacific for operations against Japan, helping with the Gilbert and Marshall Islands campaign that began in November 1943. While operating in the Pacific, she served primarily as an escort for the fast carrier task force to protect the aircraft carriers from surface and air attacks. She also frequently bombarded Japanese positions in support of amphibious assaults. She took part in the Mariana and Palau Islands campaign from June–September and the Philippines campaign from October–December. After a refit in early 1945, she returned to the fleet for operations during the Battle of Okinawa and the series of attacks on the Japanese mainland in July and August, including several bombardments of coastal industrial targets.

The Alabama assisted in Operation Magic Carpet after the war, carrying some 700 men home from the former war zone. She was decommissioned in 1947 and assigned to the Pacific Reserve Fleet, where she remained until stricken from the Naval Vessel Register in 1962.

The USS Alabama was preserved as a memorial museum ship in Mobile Bay, AL.
