I couldn't find a thread of photo's to put this on so I started this.

This is from the BBC nature series "Pacific Abyss". The tank is a casualty of a major sinking of Japanese ships in Truk Lagoon which was "revenge for Pearl Harbour".

I guess it is the Nippo Maru, but I also guess you've found this already.

I do have a few pictures of WW2 tank ruins/planes. I'll post them if I get a chance.

Would be interesting. Ever since discovering lopsided nazi fortifications half way down the beach in France as a teenager, I've had an interest.

Steve Irwin's Ghosts of War

Attachement 1: This writing is in Korean on the wall of a Japanese bunker. The Japs used slave soldiers from Korea, China and other places. It is a letter back to someone's relative in Korea. I think this is Peleliu.

Attachement 2: "If only my mechanic would hurry up". Downed Zero, Truk bay.

Attachement 3: "I can almost touch the ghosts". Truk Bay.

Attachement 4: "What a beauty!". Peleliu.

Attachement 5: 200mm gun. Peleliu.

Gallery.

It's extremely disrespectful to swim inside a shipwreck if lives were lost when it went down.

Generally, they count as official war graves. You wouldn't dig up tyne cot to look under the gravestones, so why go into a sunk ship on which many lost their lives
