I am ECSTATIC to report that on 02 March 2015, the wreck of the Japanese battleship Musashi has been FOUND! Based on this pic, she (or part of her, at least) is UPRIGHT!

Personally I think that's absolutely fantastic news! Any further details that can be provided about this?

Details are scant at the moment, but hopefully we'll know more tomorrow.

If she is upright and still in one piece it would be exceptional, we'll see when additional information will surface. Great news anyway.

Indeed! According to further tweets by Paul Allen, pics of the aircraft handling area and the huge hole where No. 1 gun turret was (like Bismarck, the turrets apparently fell out when she capsized), and other areas will be available soon. Now all we have to do is get Ken Marschall to apply his mastery to this project and we're set!

The night after Musashi sank came the last time that battleship fired on battleship and the last time a battleship sank another battleship.
