Atom Bomb VS. Fleet Boat

Postby greenman407 » Thu Aug 19, 2010 9:37 am

In the nuclear tests at Bikini Atoll many ships were anchored close to the blast point to see how they fared in a nuclear explosion SS-305 Skate. It survived although mangled. The pressure hull was not breeched.

In route to bikini.
