Submerged Japanese relic

Post subject: Submerged Japanese relic

Here's one tank that's definitely a project for the Tank Overhaul series. I believe it's a Type 95, Ha-go. It was sunk on the Japanese Naval Ship "San Francisco Maru", in the Truk Lagoon.

Truk Lagoon is located about 590 southeast of Guam and 3372 miles southwest of Hawaii, in Chuuk.


A bit of history:
The Maru was sunk at the end of WWII, with "Operation Hailstone" in which the US Navy attacked the Japanese Imperial 4th Fleet stationed in Truk Lagoon. In the blaze of battle, 15 Japanese naval ships, six tankers, 17 cargo ships, and 265 planes disappeared beneath the sea. Some have never been found and are declared MIA.

Another tank which was sunk on the "San Francisco Maru", in the Truk Lagoon. This one is a Type 97 Te-Ke tankette. Quoting Preserved Japanese Tanks by Trevor Larkum, "this Type 97 is one of three light tanks remaining on the deck of the wrecked cargo ship San Francisco Maru on the floor of Truk Lagoon; the others are Type 95s :
