Pearl Harbor's Aftermath: American Payback Gathers Steam

The Second Naval Battle of Guadalcanal (14-15 November 1942)

From Wikipedia:

"From this close range, Washington opened fire and quickly hit Kirishima with at least nine main battery shells and almost forty secondary ones, causing heavy damage and setting her aflame. Kirishima was hit below the waterline and suffered a jammed rudder, causing her to circle uncontrollably to port."
