Watch Seismic Seconds online: Episode 5 Sinking of HMS Coventry

During the Falklands War (Spanish: Guerra de las Malvinas/Guerra del Atlntico Sur), two British warships - HMS Coventry and HMS Broadsword - prepared for battle, tasked with defending the British fleet from air attack. An attack force of Argentinian aircraft bombed the Coventry and the Broadsword. One bomb hit the Broadsword but failed to explode until it had exited the ship's hull. Three bombs hit the Coventry, of which two exploded on board. The Coventry capsized shortly afterwards and sank the next day. Nineteen crew members were killed.
