  History  
 
Lettens Jan01/11/2009On 29th February 1944, US submarine Trout (SS-202) attacks a Guam-bound Japanese convoy about 625 miles east of Formosa.

She sinks army transport Sakito Maru southeast of Okinawa and damages the Japanese transport Aki Maru.

USS Trout is later sunk, most probably by the Japanese destroyer Asashimo.
