It doesn't look as bad as I expected
 
Might make a good damage control school


All electronics wrecked by seawater, and most mechanical systems too. Some could be recovered, but it would be an expensive process.

Yup. removing the parts and then testing them for function is probably going to cost more (norwegian wages! ) than to just build everything new. and you also have the risk of not finding defects that may have an effect later.

 

 

Modern warships are so flimsy.

Some modern damage control procedures are a bit inadequate, too.

Tin cans have always been relatively fragile warships, but when they can only be purchased in capital ship numbers, there's a problem

There's pictures of some old Fletcher-class DD's after combat or kamikaze attacks in the Pacific in WW2. They look like total floating wrecks but still survived the pounding. For their size they seemed to be some pretty tough boats.

My favorite story is a DD escorting a BB and taking a hit, and then using the spray from the BB to help extinguish its fires and resume its station.
