    I found these preliminary damage reports for the USS Saratoga. Dated Jan 11 1942.

    I will post the UNS final reports later this week.

    Note - dont forget to look at the PDF file thats attached.

    Moderator - Please move this thread to the aviation section if you feel that anything to do with aircraft carriers is germane to WW2 aircraft (in general).

    She did well, I would have expected more damage from a submarine torpedo.

    It looks like the main damage is caused by the shock effects and buckling bulkheads and decks (as opposed to direct blast, fragments and thermal efefcts)
