Russian cruiser playing tag with USS Enterprise CVAN-65 in Bay of Bengal during Indo-Pakistani war 1971. Took this photo from atop the island. I wonder how close that Russian warship came to being sunk by one of our subs. I understand there were Russian subs in the area too. And plenty of warships from both sides.
Aside from the Sea Sparrow launchers the Big E carried, not sure what other defense weaponry she had at that time.
And how close to a target they could be used.
