I wasn’t aware¬†of Japanese I-400 boats until I received an email a couple days ago with this article, which is available from numerous sources online. I found it coincidental to have read about this not long after¬†Galrahn‚Äôs Risk Averse Political Policy Requires High End Focus¬†led to a good bit of discussion¬†on defending submarines from air threats.
Airfield Under The Sea is an interesting read for anyone (like me) who did¬†not¬†know¬†the Japanese had actually put submarines to sea carrying aircraft.
Most of the photos and graphics are self-explanatory, but I wish there was a caption giving the date and location of the photograph of a surviving M6A1 Seiron on page 2.
