    Half a dozen stealth aircrafts could be very useful in such a submarine.

    Great thinking in those days of carrying planes in a sub... It sometmes amaze me of those thinkers who were way ahead of their time...

    Submarine aircraft carriers weren't only solution the Japanese came up, They also planned Fire balloons.

    It wasnt the Imperial Japan submarines which succeed, but it was US Submarine fleet.

    Now that Japan is slowly militarising, some nations will have to do a rethink.

    They are innovative and are ultra nationalists.

    Japanese are smart, hardworking, and very focus..
    But in the course of war they simply manipulated there own codes for there own benefits latter proved to be fatal for themselves only..

    IMHO, Admiral isoroku yamamoto was the only true tactical tactician in Imperial Japan, After his death his successor were ill experienced and dont had the same capacity as Admiral yamamoto, The Imperial Japanese navy since then had issue with lack of coordination with his own and with Airforce and Army..

    Got to admit on that.

    Japanese did underestimated US submarine fleet and industry. They were pumping more than sinking enemy vessels.

    They way US pumping ships to battle readiness was extraordinary

    Actually Japan never underestimated US, Mins before Admiral isoroku yamamoto launched attack on pearl harbor he said ' we are about to wake a sleeping giant ', He knew he had to strike fast and hard and get a peace treaty or cease fire, He is very much disliked in Imperial headquarters for his views which were correct and true, Actually his death was celebrated in a way in Imperial navy by many of his rivals, And even Sadly the way of warrior was manipulated which was itself a insult to the spirit of Nippon, this attitude took Japan to its sad defeat..

    Isoroku Yamamoto never said those words, its a misquotation. They've simply been popularized by the Pearl Habor movie
