TB Kari

Allied Ships
BB Mississippi
BB Warspite, on fire
CL Trenton, on fire
CL Concord, on fire
DD Drayton
DD Shaw, Torpedo hits 1, and is sunk



Reduced sighting due to 7% moonlight

Range closes to 8,000 yards...
Range closes to 4,000 yards...
Range closes to 1,000 yards...

Could have been a short AAR if the let the BB's have a go. But no, they have to let the DD go one on one while the rest of the BB's and CL's watch.

Hibiki can not be sunk, it is Washington Rose propaganda

But Shaw on suffers 1 torp and the Hibiki  8 shell & 2 trops.

Hardly a duel to the end!

20 gun & a couple of torp hits is more of a death struggle.
