As a follow up question, in the last 20 or 30 years, how many times has a carrier or battle ship been the target of a missile attack?
February 23, 1991 Persian Gulf USS Missouri

It's not within 30 years, May 25, 1982, but Argentine Exocets were launched at Invincible. Conflicting stories about whether Invincble's chaff cloud deflected the missiles or whether Atlantic Conveyor was deployed as a decoy in case the carriers were attacked with missiles.

Do you agree?
