Help identifying ship
Posted by Jim Davis on 12/17/2019, 10:09 am
Here's a link to gun camera film made by a USS Saratoga plane during a raid on Soerabaja in May of 1944. At around 1:51 there's a warship that I think may be a minelayer, but I'm not sure. It's camouflaged (aft 1/4 of hull in white) and the funnel looks really funky to me. Anyone recognize this thing? I/m generally pretty good with IJN vessels but this has me stumped.
