General comments:

  • The article links to three DAB pages: Fuel economy, Bulkhead and Draught (nautical) - the last one being a redirect to Draft DAB. Please adjust to correct targets.
  • External links are fine (no action needed).
  • No overlinking observed.


  • No problems whatsoever - licenses check out, captions are fine.


  • No referencing problems either.


Prose review:

  • Is the first name of W. Brown, Jr unknown or is there another reason for use of the initial only?
    • First name is unknown as far as sources go. —Ed!(talk) 14:50, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
      • In that case, it is possible that the redlink is not warranted, but that is not for the GAR.
  • In At 08:30, she altered course to pursue a sound ping on her sonar., I assume that's half past eight in the morning. Perhaps "am" (or "pm") designation would dispel doubts that readers may have regarding this matter?
    • Fixed. —Ed!(talk) 14:50, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
  • In The torpedo struck between framed 18 and 24 at about 4 feet (1.2 m) below her water line., I suspect that should be "frames" but I'm not familiar with ship construction, so I'm leaving it for you to correct me or that word.
    • You're right. Fixed. —Ed!(talk) 14:50, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
  • In She was also fitted with newer weapons and electronics systems. what were those electronic systems? Just asking out of curiosity.--Tomobe03 (talk) 20:59, 11 May 2013 (UTC)
    • A newer radar. Added that. —Ed!(talk) 14:50, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

Since I found no disagreements with the MOS, i think there are no further issues to address except those already stated.--Tomobe03 (talk) 21:01, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your review! —Ed!(talk) 14:50, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
