During WW2, the Australian warship, Sydney, spotted what appeared to be a spotter plane while escorting other ships in the Mediterranean... so they opened fire... expending about 10% of its entire store of ammo....

Then, a British ship told them to cease fire as the Planet Venus, which they were trying to shoot down... was out of range...

True story.

Sadly, the Aussie ship was sunk by a German "Q" ship off the Australian coast, however, The German ship was also sunk.

You never heard about that? well, bigger news got in the way... The Japanese had bombed Hawaii.
