Today in History, February 12, 1945:
The USS Batfish, an American Balao class fleet submarine, sinks it’s second Japanese submarine within three days. She would sink three Japanese submarines during her WWII career.
Sinking another submarine is quite an accomplishment, accounting for range, depth and speed with the technology of the time.
The Batfish had an active Naval career. If you’d like to see her, she lives on as a war memorial in Muskogee, Oklahoma. We’re pretty proud of her.
