Cruiser USS Pensacola (CA-23) was a sorry sight after test ABLE--with her stacks crumbled, a severe list, and her radar and communications array mangled. She suffered heavy contamination during test BAKER and, after unsuccessful attempts to decontaminate her, the cruiser was scuttled of the coast of Washington.
