Yamagumo and Michishio have been found.

Predictably, Yamagumo is in pieces, with debris scattered over the sea floor.

China believed to have been from Yamagumo's officer's mess scattered in the debris field.

Michishio is in one piece.

Impressive work by that team, just leaves Mogami on their list which we might see in the coming week

Sad though for those lost but from a design standpoint interesting to see what damage a torpedo can inflict on a light destroyer

Mogami sank some distance away from the rest of them, so I don't know if they plan to look for her or not. According to what I've read, she was not an objective of this expedition, but might be a 'future project'.

From what I read they plan too if they have time which they might due to the speedy nature of these discoveries

Probably in a future expedition. After Surigao they went to Ormoc Bay where they found USS Ward and USS Cooper.
