Quote from: Grumpy on February 10, 2010, 09:27:02 PMThey also shelled the oil storage tanks near Gaviota in California. From I understand, hot much damage was done though. On Christmas day in '42 one of their subs was sunk off the California Coast near Morro Bay.

Quote from: AdAstra on February 11, 2010, 05:34:46 PMSorry, Grumpy, but it was the oil derricks and storage tanks at Goleta, about 25 miles from Gaviota. I-17 fired between 17-25 shells on 23 Feb 1942 but caused little damage.The first ship torpedoed off the California coast was the oiler SS Emidio, hit on 19 Dec 1941 and beached near Crescent City.
Quote from: flyboy1 on February 11, 2010, 11:07:23 PMJokes aside, the Japanese started up the Aleutian Islands in Alaska about the same time as the Pearl Harbor attack and were repulsed by a combined force that include, but not limited to, the 11th Air Force, the 4th Infantry Division, and the 1st Special Service Force, a joint Army and Canadian outfit. Then you have the balloon bombs that I think killed and wounded a group of school kids and their teacher. Then you have one or more attempts by the Japanese to launch aircraft from submarines. If memory serves me correctly, there's only one of those aircraft still around and the submarine that it was designed for was sunk to avoid giving the technology away before the Cold War got hot.
Quote from: Major Lord on February 11, 2010, 11:59:24 PMGrowing up in Redondo Beach, there was a story of civil defense forces spotting what they believed to be a submarine off the coast, and with the help of some life guards, managed to cap-off a cannon round or two. Like CAP's stories of Submarine carnage, there is no evidence to show they did anything besides really irking a few whales....Major Lord
