Battle of Vella Gulf *

In the Solomon Islands at Vella Gulf there is an engagement between 6 American destroyers (Dunlap, Craven, Maury, Lang, Sterett, and Stack) and 4 Japanese destroyers ((Hagikaze, Arashi, Shigure and Kawakaze)) carrying troops and supplies to Kolombangara. Because American radar was more sophisticated, they were aware of the Japanese ships and did not fire their guns until their torpedoes were already in the water. All 4 destroyers were hit, but one escaped with just rudder damage. The other three Japanese vessels were sunk with 1210 dead, but there are no American losses.
