HMS Gascoyne, a mine hunter of the Australian Navy has discovered a Japanese submarine of WWII vintage lying in the Pacific Ocean at a death of 55 meters. The location is in the Simpson Harbor off the coast of Rabaul, an outpost off the South Pacific.

The wreck of the sub is standing upright in the water, its nose is buried in the floor of the harbor.

Rabaul used to be a key Japanese naval base during the WWII from 1942 and the area has active volcanoes – it is now a place where divers come to search for WWII treasures.

The Australian Navy is in contact with Japanese authorities to confirm the identity of the submarine.
