The Battle of Surigao Strait was the last battleship-versus-battleship action in history. It was also the last battle in which one force (the Americans, in this case) was able to "cross the T" of its opponent.
However, by the time the battleship action was joined the Japanese line was very ragged and consisted of only one battleship (Yamashiro), one heavy cruiser and one destroyer, so that the "crossing of the T" was notional and had little effect on the outcome of the battle.
The Battle of Surigao Strait is commemorated every October 24-25 of the year. US, Japanese and Philippine World War II veterans highlight the event. In some instances of the celebration, the Philippine Air Force showed amazing jet flight exhibition above Surigao Strait.
