You might find something on the US Navy site

They had some pic's on there of an old WW2 tanker used as a target for the modern array of skimmer weaponry
US and UK etc joint fleet exercise.



The Tanker was hardly touched ---the yanks had to sink it with scuttling charges!!

Yeah that was the post-scuttle shot of America. Interestingly, the story goes that she didn't sink despite all manner of nasties going into her (including Mk48 ADCAP) and she had to be scuttled eventually.

Try typing sinkex into Gary Google and searching images. there's an awful lot of proof that 21" torpedoes make a mess of most DD/FF!

As it is accepted that every-thing in Oz is the opposite way up to the rest of the civilized world, then The words Australia are in the correct place, on the bottom where they can be seen.
