Unfortunately, the G Havocs proved to be too vulnerable to the heavy German anti-aircraft fire that was nearly ubiquitous when flying at low altitudes, and by November ofthe st had withdrawn their AGs from ground attack operations due to heavy losses. This finished the ship off after it had been severely damaged by cannon fire from Oscarsborg.
