Re: Ohhh...the pain....
according to the non military people if it has a gun it's a battleship. I wonder if duck hunters boat comply.
They are ALL "Battleships", remember?
the 1st Japanese battleship to be lost in ww2 but not 1st Japanese vessel to be lost in ww2.
LOS ANGELES - Researchers have found the wreckage of the Imperial Japanese Navy battleship Hiei, which sank in the South Pacific during World War II. It was the first Japanese vessel to be lost in the war .
I don't know if this is news here or already known, but it seems Paul Allen's team has found most of the wreck of the Hiei near Savo Island.
Here's to the memory of all the sailors in that fierce battle.
