    On this day in history in 1945, the Japanese submarine I-58 hit heavy cruiser USS Indianapolis with a torpedo. Ship sunk 12 minutes later and her disappearance was not noticed until a patrol plane chanced to spot the survivors on August 2nd. This failure was caused both by lapses in the coordination between two commands and by a secret nature of the previous journey of the Indianapolis - carrying parts of the first nuclear bombs to the Mariana islands. This was the last large ship being lost during the World War II. Note: Time of the event is set to the actual time of attack, July 30 at 00:15 local time. I-58 USS Indianapolis, July 10th, 1945

    Attack on Kure

    Following the attack on Yokosuka, the carrier aviation focused on the port of Kure where the bulk of Japanese Navy surviving warships sheltered. In a series of attacks spanning several days, most of the heavy units including aircraft carriers Amagi and Katsuragi, Combined Fleet's flagship cruiser Oyodo, battleships Ise, Hyuga and Haruna, cruisers Tone and Aoba and a number of other ships were sunk, ensuring almost complete freedom of operation for the Allied fleet. The success however came at a steep price of 133 aircrafts - one of the heaviest losses the US Navy 3rd Fleet suffered.

    Second Bombardment of Kamaishi

    the last of the bombardments of Japan was truly international, with the American ships being joined not only by British, but also New Zealand warships. The target were again iron works around Kamaishi and the damage caused was more serious than i the first bombardment. Another attack was planned for August 13th, but it was cancelled both due to technical trouble of HMS King George V and the dropping of nuclear bombs. No further bombardment took place until the end of the war. US Navy: USS South Dakota USS Indiana USS Massachusetts USS Quincy II USS Chicago II USS Boston USS Saint Paul nine destroyers Royal Navy: HMS Newfoundland three destroyers (HMS Terpsichore, Termagant, Tenacious) Royal New Zealand Navy: HMNZS Gambia

    Por fin le toca el turno al tan afamado acorazado japones, les presento a su Majestad Imperial ... Yamato. Espero que os guste tanto como a mi ( he decidido seguir con la linea en tonos verdes para que el resto de la flota japonesa no se vea afectada. Sin más, os dejo con las imágenes. Como siempre, os dejo el enlace de DESCARGA Esta vez he optado por haceros más fácil la instalación, simplemente debéis alojar la carpeta dentro de la raíz del juego ( C:\Games\World_of_Warships ) Espero que os guste, un saludo y nos vemos detrás de alguna ola !!!
