It really shouldnt be possible for a naval reactor to do that. In any case of meltdown due to coolant failure or destruction they should have access to sufficient cooling, ships can deliberately flood out spaces and if there is a meltdown beginning I have a hard time believing someone wouldn't be smart enough to throw open the fire mains and begin to flood the space magazine style. Sure that would likely kill everyone in the room due to the steam becoming a carrier agent, but by and large, if a shipborne reactor melts down the ship is going to sink from having a giant hole melted through the bottom
Just going off what current damage a ship takes. It’s possible to suffer a bomb hit on a carrier where a fire rages out of control. The result, while short lived, would still be catastrophic to the surrounding environment (which doesn’t need to be modeled in game) and trigger harsh political and economic penalties for a nation that has poor nuclear safety resulting in raised tensions, and political pressure that consequently raises the operating costs of nuclear propulsion and research. Continued accidents would finally result in a ban taking place. Already we see the reluctance of the Japanese to allow nuclear carriers to dock in Japan. Imagine the outcry from all nations when multiple accidents at sea pike up.
