Re: That's assuming that a significant portion of the crew survived the hits to fight the damage.
i have just seen a short clip via Facebook, the hit came from the bow and it looks like 4 or more of her missiles exploded as an instantaneous secondary explosion! IE EQUIVALENT TO A MAGAZINE EXPLOSION!
Some reports of crew losses indicate that casualties may have been immediately catastrophic. In other words, the interior detonations, flash fires and associated toxic gasses left too few crew left to fight fires and control damage.
We may never know what actually happened in detail aboard that ship after the missiles struck.
