VIZCAYA - the Bow Damage

Please Visit our Home Page to learn more about the Spanish American War

This broadside view of the VIZACAYA shows the extensive damage to her. Notably, this view shows the tremendous damage to the bow which finally put her out of action. Apparently, a shell (probably from BROOKLYN) coincidentally hit a torpedo in the VIZCAYA's bow torpedo tube. The resulting tremendous explosion blew out the VIZCAYA's bow, ending her career.
