Sink the Montana

9th of 30 episodes in Sunbow season 2. Written by David Carren. First aired September 29, 1986.









Previous episode: Computer Complications
Next episode: Cobrathon

The battleship USS Montana is decommissioned, and Hawk finds that its captain, his old friend Adm. Latimer, is bitter over his beloved ship's retirement. During the ceremony, Destro and a team of BATs board the ship, revealing that Latimer has defected to Cobra. They steer the ship toward Norfolk, Virginia, intent on wiping out the Seventh Fleet.

Hawk orders the Joes to sink the Montana, but the ship is protected by an EMP device, preventing any electronic attack. Hawk then recruits volunteers for an unauthorized mission to steal the wind-driven USS Constitution. With it they are able to board the Montana and destroy the EMP device, allowing a Naval fleet to destroy the ship. Hawk convinces Latimer to abandon ship with the Joes and turn himself in.

Misc. Notes

  • On the DVDs from Shout! Factory, this episode is included in the Season 2.0 set (Disc 1, Episode 8).
  • The episode's production number places it between The Invaders and Cold Slither, so it may have originally been conceived as a season-1 episode with different featured characters.
