Sorry for bad english - this is Google translator.
Bring up the subject.
I live in Russia, Vladivostok. Vladivostok is the base of the Pacific Navy of Russia (USSR).
After the Second World War the Soviet Union was to repair seven Japanese destroyers:Harutsuki (Внезапный), Hibiki (Прыткий), Hatsuzakura (Выразительный), Kaya (Волевой), Kiji (Внимательный), Kiri (Возрожденный), Shii (Вольный). All of these destroyers were part of the Pacific Fleet.
Near Vladivostok is an island Karamzin. In Soviet times it was used for firing the Soviet Navy. Along the coast of the island there were several ships of the target. Now they are all sunk. One of these ships is all divers are called "Japanese destroyer Hibiki."
Several times I dived on the ship. But then I was not interested in its history.Now I want to know whether the wreck is the destroyer Hibiki. For the identification of the vessel in the summer of 2013, I plan to organize an expedition with photos and videos.
Can you tell me what you first need to pay attention to? The vessel is a pile of metal. Well preserved only nose.
