The Bomb that Sank USS Arizona
The Bomb that Sank USS Arizona The Japanese turned an obsolete 16 inch shell from the Nagato class battleships into a Bomb and sunk the USS Arizona.
Obsolete Type 88 shells were modified in 1939–40 to create the Type 99 No. 80 Mk 5 armor-piercing bomb.
The Japanese used them during the attack on Pearl Harbor and one pierced the deck of the USS Arizona and caused her to explode.
