Re: History Quiz #30
The action in Ormoc Bay on 3 Dec 1944 is the answer I was looking for. Three Allen M. Sumner class DD's - Sumner, Moale and Cooper engaged a Japanese reinforcement group for their forces on Leyte which included escort destroyers Kuwa and Taka of the Matsu class. Kuwa was sunk by the combined fire of the three US DD's, but Taka hit Cooper with a Long Lance torpedo that quickly sank her. Models are Neptun 1260 and 1360.
USS Cooper , Allen M Sumner Class and IJN Take
Matsu class both Neptune models, I have both.
In Dec 3, 1944 IJN Take hit USS Cooper with
torpedo, wich broke in two the american destroyer
with great casualties
Identify these ships (take them as representative of their classes) and an occasion on which they met.
