Feb 1945, Balao class out of Fremantle...attacked convoy, sank two ships...went to 650 feet to get away, took a severe depth charging on way down, many close charges....one bow tube destroyed, others damaged, minor bulkhead damage, other systems damaged.5 inch deck gun destroyed.
Noticed after surfacing that my sonar would not rotate, could still hear, but the cursor on the sonar stack would not rotate, but no sonar damage was reported.Also, all depth gauges, engine telegraphs and other gauges no longer functioned.
This happened on a career in a Salmon in 1944 after a severe depth charging also.
So wondering if this is battle damage that is not reported or a bug?
Anyone else had this happen?
