The article reports on the high-technology Japanese submarines rediscovered off the coast of Oahu, Hawaii by researchers at the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration-funded Hawaii Undersea Research Laboratory. The bigger vessel, I-14, was a non-nuclear submarine designed to go around the world one and a half times without refueling while the smaller vessel, I-201, was a fast-attack submarine. The submarines were discovered with the help of the late Charles Alger, the chief mate on the crew tasked with transporting I-14 to Hawaii.
