Uh!  There's no mystery for the U.S Navy. They sunk the I-400s off Hawaii top make sure the Russians didn't get a peek.  :smokin:

Are you forgetting the voyage of U-234.Her first and only mission into enemy territory consisted of the attempted delivery of uranium oxide and German advanced weapons technology to the Empire of Japan. They have a DVD out on this voyage with some of the surviving crew being interviewed.

. The I-401 lies about 820 meters (2665 feet) off the coast of Barbers Point. The bow is broken off just forward of the aircraft hangar. The two pieces are not far apart and are connected by a debris field. The main hull is sitting upright on the bottom, the numbers "I-401" are clearly visible on the sides of the conning tower. Her 25 mm antiaircraft guns seem in almost perfect condition
