Trivia

The USS Montana (BB 67), planned but never built, would have been the lead ship of a new class of battleships that followed the Iowa ships (Iowa BB 61, New Jersey BB 62, Missouri BB 63 and Wisconsin BB 64). The Montana class was canceled by July 1942 in favor of constructing the Essex class aircraft carriers.

The Montana, as represented in this episode, is substantially what the real USS Montana would have been, a large ship reminiscent of the Iowa class, with 4 turrets each having three 16" .50 cal main guns. See more »

Goofs

One of the "mothball" ships attacked by the USS Montana in the Philadelphia Navy Yard is an aircraft carrier with the number 68 on its deck. CVN-68 is the USS Nimitz, in service at that time. See more »

Plot; When the U.S.S. Montana is decommissioned, her captain makes a deal to steal the legendary battleship and turn it over to Cobra.

I love my 80s 'toons. Sure, some of it is nostalgia--in some cases that's all it is--but with G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero I genuinely still enjoy going on missions with America's daring, highly trained special mission force. It's a brand that really excelled across all formats; 'toon, comic and toy line. "Sink the Montana" is one of the better regarded episodes by Joe fans, and for good reason. The logic of a dedicated captain betraying his country for a terrorist organization because he's miffed about his beloved ship being decommissioned doesn't hold up to much scrutiny... until you factor in that by this point Cobra was being lead by a man created from the DNA of history's greatest tyrants.

There's some humor to be had, with Shipwreck getting into pirate mode when the Joes are forced to use the U.S.S. Constitution (launched in 1797 and the oldest commissioned vessel in the U.S. Navy), but otherwise it plays things pretty serious and straightforward. Or as serious and straightforward as you can with android soldiers running into a hail of laser beams.
