*pictured - IJN destroyer Hayate on sea trials in the Sea of Japan in 1925* What's your most successful tactic as a destroyer captain? One strategy is to track an enemy vessel at range and launch a spread of torpedoes at maximum range to guess the course of the target. The other is to get as close as possible using islands and concealment to improve striking power while risking exposure to lethal return fire. Destroyer skippers, do you launch your fish at range or lay in wait for an ambush? "The difference between a good and great officer is about ten seconds." - Arleigh Burke, U.S. Navy #waitingtoambushwednesday #anchorsaweigh
