Sorry Top Hatter but FACTs get in the way of that statement. Jersey did fire on that target during Operation Sea Dragon. And didn't/couldn't drop her.Originally Posted by TopHatter
The world's only active battleship at the time spent a month with Sea Dragon causing havoc along the North Vietnamese coast. Logistic complexes, troop concentrations, fortified caves, watercraft, the famous Thanh Hoa Bridge, and Hon Mat Island's coastal artillery fell victim to New Jersey's 1,900-pound shells. When Washington enacted the November 1, 1968, moratorium on attacks in the North, the battleship moved south to provide heavy naval gunfire support until she left Vietnam in April 1969.
