When all the explanations and interpretations for the results of the tests, which began in November 1919 and ended five years later, had been voiced, one fact remained uncontested: a battleship of the most modern design could be sent to the bottom by a well placed bomb carried by an airplane.  Regardless of the protests voiced by the admirals about the meaning of the tests, they made the Navy conscious of air defense.  Others saw with insight that their thin decks made carriers very fragile, and the British soon began to build them with armored decks.

Regardless of the protests voiced by the admirals about the meaning of the tests, they made the Navy conscious of air defense.  Others saw with insight that their thin decks made carriers very fragile, and the British soon began to build them with armored decks. Britain and Japan launched carriers in the 1920s and set about similar armament programs, although without the level of contention that marked America's entrance.  The German Navy never gained control of an air arm.  In 1938 only Dönitz understood, and he had not yet convinced his superiors.

When all of this was working well and the target conditions were ideal, the results were good enough to make the fliers worry, but the conditions were seldom good, and extravagant amounts of ammunition were consumed with little effect.  In fog or above the clouds nothing worked, but then the same was true for the fliers.  One of the reasons the Luftwaffe favored dive bombers was the efficiency demonstrated by their Flak on these kinds of run.  Professor A V Hill dismissed it 'as based on sloppy thinking and bad arithmetic' [ 2 ].
