The operation Crossroads is not a directly "war operation" but nuclear weapon tests are military tests (operations). (??)

I do believe kjfitz specified that these ships had to be sunk by an enemy attack

"Operation Crossroads" qualifies this as a legitimate military operation during which the ship was sunk.

Should be noted that she accompanied the Bismark on the famous sortie into the Atlantic, and probably hit the Hood with her 8" guns.
