As Vincennes’s captain attempted radically to maneuver, one torpedo from Chokai hit at about 0155hrs. Another torpedo, this one from Yubari, hit at 0203hrs.

Preceding the arrival of the convoy, the Combined Fleet had ordered a repeat of the successful October battleship bombardment against Henderson Field. This was part of a massive operation in which the convoy was escorted by 12 destroyers and supported by the 8th Fleet with its four heavy cruisers, one light cruiser and six destroyers.
