  4. Everyone, you are welcome. The fire damage is something to behold, so to is how the torpedo explosion has peeled the hull plating away. That .50cal machine gun that is located on the very tip of the flight deck on the left side of ship that they linger on, in the photo above you can see it as the ship lists.
