Default USS Sealion attack on Kongo & Cargo ship audio recordings

Audio tracks from https://maritime.org/sound/#sealion combined into single file for each attack. Moderate improvement of audio quality by increasing speed 10%, some noise reduction and adjusting treble and bass.

Thanks . I thought it amusing that according to Mr. Schuler, a CBS war corespondent "develop cold feet" between Pearl and Midway and left the recording equipment with the crew-He missed his scoop in history for sure, but i can't help but question myself whether I would have made the same decision as the corespondent given the circumstances! The recording are not bad and you can make out ambient sounds of equipment and even the accents of the crew.

Interesting. True, if the correspondent had been there and the sound equipment used correctly it probably would have been the scoop of a lifetime and a famous WWII story.

Only a few known recordings made and one is the sinking of a Battleship and a Destroyer.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Sealion_(SS-315)
At 0245, Sealion, ahead of the task force, turned in and slowed for the attack. Eleven minutes later, she fired six torpedoes at the second ship in line, Kongō. At 0259, she fired three at Nagato. At 0300, her crew saw and heard three hits from the first salvo, flooding two of Kongō's boiler rooms and giving her a list to port. Nagato, alerted by the explosions, turned hard and the Sealion's second salvo missed ahead, running on to hit and sink Urakaze; the destroyer's magazines were hit by the torpedo. She blew up and sank quickly with the loss of all hands on board, including ComDesDiv 17 Yokota Yasuteru.
