What an expensive catastrophe. I would think that a warship would be a bit sturdier and better designed to withstand punishment but it seems like they don't build them as well as they used to--unless it was a magazine explosion. I couldn't imagine what would have happened had this ship been in a combat situation. One hit from an anti-ship missile and it would be kaput.

At those temperatures that the ship's steel was at, it will lose its strength and deform. The ship would have to have all of that metal replaced. That would essentially mean a new ship which might actually be easier to do.
