If i remeber right their was 4 subs? in the harbor that day only 1 or 2 even had deck guns. and when the united states declare war on japan 2 subs went out and were almost sunk by american destoryer escorts only one of them even made a torpedo run. Funny thing is one of the captions on one of the boats eventully went to a insane aslyum.

Tambor and ... Tuna maybe were stationed out of Pearl but were out on patrol at the time.

Tautog was stationed in Milwaukee with Cobia for awhile. On February 20, 1960 both subs were torn from their moorings during a winter storm. I think there are still a few dents in Cobia from that storm! Here is a photo of Cobia and Tuatog in Milwaukee. We actually have Tuatug's periscope on disaplay in the museum.

Kind of off topic but an interesting tidbit. :)

There were several subs at sea at this time...but those 4 were the only ones at Pearl during the attack.
