While learning of the history of my highest tier ship, Pensacola, I was surprised to learn it, along with a few others introduced to me through WoWS, was Nuked in the Baker test of Operation Crossroads.
Would be interesting to see a Bikini map, with scripted nuclear tests during the match.

WoWS notable ships participating in Crossroads was:
USS Arkansas, BB-33,
USS New York, BB-34,
USS Independence, CV-22, 
USS Pensacola, CA-24,
German Cruiser Prince Eugen,
Japanese BB Nagato.

How about a special "Bikini Zombie Ship" challenge? Bottom of the sea camo but with mutant-radiation quirks, and maybe some "undead" feature? That would be so freaking cool.

That vertical object in the center of the blast, around 4-5 o-clock is the Arkansas.

This is pretty much why USN gave up on big gun ships with armor and transitioned to guided missile botes.

Wow; for a second I thought that was the nerf-hammer hitting an IJN DD!

(and VERY nice to be replying to a RedSeaBear post!)

Also, in the gif it's a little clearer, the bottom right and closest ship is Nagato. Aslo sunk at Bikini is USS Saratoga.

And here I thought this is what the Nerf-Hammer hitting an IJN DD looked like.

That's funny, because it's probably true!
