I just had my Tashkent sunk by a strike from an Shokaku.
Yes, I was spinning around like a wild man trying to throw off the strike and managed to avoid the first spread but the second one got me.
One time I was in another DD (T4 or 5?) going through a fairly narrow channel. The island on my portside was pretty close by. I realize that trying to estimate the distance in this type of situation is pretty futile but somehow a torpedo bomber managed to squeeze in there and drop a torp which sank me. Visually the island seemed one DD ship length away. I was shocked to put it mildly.
