    General Belgrano
    The ARA General Belgrano was an Argentine Navy cruiser sunk during the Falklands War with the loss of 323 lives. Losses from the Belgrano totalled just over half of Argentine deaths in the Falklands conflict

    HMS Courageous
    On 17th September 1939 Kapitšnleutnant Otto Schuhart in the Type VII U-boat U29 torpedoed and sank HMS Courageous in the South-West approaches (Southwest of Ireland), 150nm WSW of Mizen Head, Ireland. The carrier went down in only twenty minutes and 518 of her 1,200 compliment went with her, including her commander Captain W T Makeig-Jones.

    HMS Hermes
    HMS Hermes while heading in convoy from Trincomali to the Maldive Islands, was attacked by the Japanese First Air Fleet's 50 Aichi D3Al aircraft (soon to be named VAL by the Allies) from the Japanese carriers Akagai (flagship), Hiryu, and Soryu, which sank her and also sank a destroyer, corvette and two tankers, southeast of Trincomalee, Ceylon on 9 April 1942.

    HMS Braham explodes
    Barham was hit by three torpedoes from the German submarine U-331, commanded by Lieutenant Hans-Dietrich von Tiesenhausen. The torpedoes were fired from a range of only 750 yards providing no time for evasive action, and struck so closely together as to throw up a single massive water column. As she rolled over to port, her magazines exploded and the ship quickly sank with the loss of over two thirds of her crew.

    Former U.S. navy ship.

    Also the only ship ever sunk in combat by torps launched from a nuclear sub.

    (Please correct me if this is incorrect)

    **edit** Wiki says...
    "She is the only ship ever to have been sunk by a nuclear-powered submarine and only the second sunk by any type of submarine since World War II. The Royal Navy submarine used three Mk 8 mod 4 torpedoes."

    Not just a former USN ship but a former sunken USN ship - wasn't she raised from shallow water and repaired before being sold to Arhentina?

    That wouldn't exactly inspire confidence in me - going to war in something thats already been sunk

    WWII torpedoes were used on her as the newer Mk24/Tigerfish were considered to be a bit unruly
