Various odds and ends of nautical sound re ordings.
The first is very unusual the submarine Sealion sinks the Haruna.

It looks like the Slave class cruiser, Moskva, has been hit by two Ukrainian Neptune missiles.
Considering the poor repair facilities and lack of funds, he will probably be scrapped.
The Black Sea fleet has really hard luck with the fleet flagship.  Moskva is a replacement for the previous flag, Kerch.
He was lost after a massive, multi-million dollar refurbishment that ended with a huge engine room fire that gutted the ship.  Something like the fire that ruined Bonhomme Richard last summer.  As you may recall, the theory is a disgruntled sailor set the fire.
Kerch was lost for a totally different reason.  A yard worker put his shorts on a steam pipe to dry.

War history of the carrier Enterprise.
Very sobering read.  May explain why she never became a museum ship.

United States Navy 2022


Somewhere, somehow, I woke up in the wrong timeline. I'm pretty sure this isn't even my dimension.

Damage control on Yorktown.  Good description of the hits at Coral Sea.
