Default USS Laffey


Attacked off Okinawa in 1945, the Laffey fought off a swarm of enemy planes, taking five kamakazi hits and two bomb hits, before Navy fighters arrived to dispatch the rest of the attackers. Somehow, the crew kept it afloat and made it back to Seattle under its own power.

Big ship, nice capture. Probably hard to get it all without some other stuff getting in the way... the 2 people add a sense of scale so good job leaving or having them in there...

Yah, that kinda makes it a small boat to be shot at on.

Here's what it looked like, right after the battle.



The surviving crew took it across the Pacific to the Bremerton Navy Yards near Seattle. Thirty-two men were killed in the attack, and just about everyone sustained some kind of wound or burn.
