US submarine Sealion sank on 21 November 1944 the Japanese BB Kongo and DD Urakaze in the Strait of Formosa.
Do you know the disposition of the Japanese vessels at time of the attack?
As far as I know the were the following vessels from the rear to the front line:
DD ?, DD ?
BB Yamato, BB Nagato, BB Kongo, CL Yahagi
DD ?, DD posibly Urakaze
DDs involved were: Yukikaze, Urakaze, Hamakaze, Isokaze
If it's also posible distance between ships
Thank you very much
