“On April 7, 1945, a Japanese task force of one light cruiser, eight destroyers, and the world's biggest battleship, Yamato, was spotted by United States submarines off the Bungo Strait. A force of 380 dive bombers and torpedo bombers was launched from Task Force 58 at 10:00 AM while the Japanese warships were 250 miles away. Fighting for its life, the 71,000 ton Yamato had 146 25 millimeter antiaircraft guns. By 2:25 PM, it had been sunk with the loss of 3,063 lives. Only 4 destroyers survived.”
