I found this web site dedicated to the submarine USS Wahoo...it was sunk by the Japanese (by aircraft)in 1943 off the (northern) coast of Japan (http://www.mackinnon.org/wahoo-japan-map.jpg) . In addition to the translation of these (http://www.mackinnon.org/Wahoo-Final-Battle-Report.html) Japanese battle reports (with scan's of originals) their is a lot of other interesting information...

The web site is here (http://www.mackinnon.org/wahoo-home.html).

It doesn't say what airplane was flown during the attack(s) but it was the Navy (marines) who did the flying so it could have been a "Kawanishi" (H6K or H8K).

I hope that some of you find this information interesting.
