  History  
 
Lettens Jan11/01/2010On March 28th, U.S. submarine Tunny (SS-282) damages Japanese troopship Suwa Maru off Wake Island, 19°13´N, 166°34´E.

To prevent her from sinking, Suwa Maru is run aground off Wake´s southern shore.

She was torpedoed again one week later by Seadragon en Finback. As a result of this attack, she caught fire and was a total loss.
