This event repeats every year forever
On this day in history in 1942, submarine USS Growler managed to find three Japanese destroyers at anchor off the recently occupied island of Kiska. Firing one of the most devastating torpedo spreads in the submarine warfare history, her six torpedoes resulted in at least three hits, one on each of the destroyers. The Asashio class Arare exploded and sunk, remaining two destroyers managed to get back home with serious damage.
Shiranui (Kagero class) - damaged
