USS Newport News CA-148 off North Vietnam
( image from photo by John Glass October 1967 )

Combat Naval Gunfire Support File (CONGA) 3/1966 - 1/1973
Chart NF4816 - Operation Lion's Den


Targets on this chart plotted from CONGA data by Newport News shipmate Bob Chase.

Unlike the other CONGA charts on this website, this chart also plots targets of other ships - those participating in Operation Lion's Den.  Bob also overlaid Captain Charles Farnham's chart of the Lion's Den operation.

More about Operation Lion's Den.

Bob's original plots have been reduced for web viewing. To view the full web-sized image, click on the chart area below.

Thanks to shipmate Bob Chase,  who scrubbed the raw CONGA .csv file into a much more readable .xls spreadsheet and plotted USS Newport News CA-148 targets on MGRS charts from the period.

Thanks to Jim Henthorn,  who permitted use of the MGRS maps of Viet Nam that he scanned and put on his website at www.nexus.net/~911gfx/sea-ao.html.
