P. S. " . . . took hits . . . " is a monumental understatement. RIGEL was banged up pretty good (or pretty bad, depending on which side you were rooting for). The Japanese weren't stupid. They realized only too well the importance of auxiliary ships like RIGEL. Damaging or destroying something is great. Destroying the means of reversing the damage or destruction very often has greater effect.
