OT Battleship game with Exploding ships

Okay, this is a long shot. Im looking for the name of a particlular game that my cousin and I used to play in our childhood. I'll describe the game as best I can.

Basicly it was a LARGE mat that you laid out on the floor. You then assemble these plastic battleships that had rubber bands inside them. The ships had small slots along the base of them. You had these tokens and token shoters and attempted to shoot the tokens into the slots on the ships. When you successfully got a token into the slot, the ship would fly apart (rubber band powered). IIRC there was a grid on the mat and you rolled dice or selected cards to determin which grid you had to shot from.

For the life of me I cant remember what the game was called. I would like to find out so I can attempt to track one down as for some reason it seems like loads of fun right now.

I wish I could remember the name of the game, but my brothers and I had it also. If I remember correctly it broke pretty quickly... other than that i'm useless.. Sorry

I can't believe I never had that game. It looks awesome! (for a 6 to 10 year old...)
