Do believe that is either Mew York or Texas. Colorado didn't have casements in her hull among other anomalies.

I submitted your comment to an expert on inter-war battleships, Craig Rohloff, and he confirmed your assessment and was able to further identify the ship as USS Texas. The caption has been corrected and thank you for bringing this to our attention.
