SINKEX

An interesting video of the decommissioned USS Thach being fired at with torpedoes and missiles during a live firing sinking exercise as part of RIMPAC 2016.

Interesting from a wargamers perspective to see the real effects of modern guided missiles and torpedoes.

Interesting to note that despite the massive effects of the weapons hitting, the ship stays afloat and relatively intact demonstrating that despite the lack of armour on modern ships they still have a high capacity for damage.
