    Wow. The CV-6 veterans have the finest website for a USN warship I have seen. Great documents section. Great photo section.

    From the Enterprise Action Report, Gunnery section, after the Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands, Oct 26, 1942...

    11. The initial velocity of the 20mm gun should be increased and the weight and shape of the projectile should be changed to give it better ballistic qualities. An increase in the effective range of 1000 yards is essential, and it is going to be even more essential when the enemy realize that they can probably survive by pulling out at three or four thousand feet whereas at present it is almost suicide to come down to 1500 feet.
