Whoa... He must have hit something that started a fires that went out of control and eventually reached the magazine.

I presume Banno N. will get Bakosho at least twice :)

Probably kamikaze damages are irrelevant in that one.

I will say that torpedo with magazine explosion is hero of that day.
Few hundred 16in shells exploding deep inside hull can create big hole.

That is enough to open the medicine cabinet and get a touch of adult beverage.

Ok, Doctors orders. I am on my way to the cabinet right now....


BTW, this was a conventional torpedo attack-not a kamikaze mission, and Ens Banno just seized the bull by the horns and decided to bathe his memory in glory. Tokyo Rose is going to have a field day with this one.

Yes, but it looks like the kami hit occurred after the torpedo hit. I am out of sync though and did not get to see the replay. I will ask Viperpol if it was the torpedo or the actual kamikaze that brewed up the powder room.

Not having dealt with suicide attacks before is it possible that the torpedo was carried by the suicide betty? That would explain it.

tho' Tom Lehrer wrote this lyric in a different context,
i think it's appropriate to say:

"We'll try to stay serene and calm
When Alabama gets the bomb.
Who's next?"

(edited to add the 'Who's next?' bit)

A ship that suffers a magazine explosion can continue to be targeted and hit during the combat resolution phase. At the end of the phase, the ship goes and pays a visit to Mr. Jones and is removed from play.

Not so sure about your point but yes, in this case I think I would have been much happier if Lt. Banno had just surrendered..
