A team of ocean explorers confirmed Sunday that the USS Grayback, one of the most successful US submarines during the war, was discovered about 50 nautical miles south of Okinawa back in June.

Taylor founded the Lost 52 Project after his first WWII submarine discovery of the USS R12.

A determined American explorer has discovered a submarine lost for 75 years-and the final resting place of 80 American servicemen.

The submarine had been attacked about two weeks earlier and "exploded and sank immediately", according to Japanese reports cited by the Navy.

The sub was sunk by a Nakajima b5N carrier bomber on February 26, 1944, during its 10th war patrol, according to a video announcement from the Lost 52 project.

United Kingdom opposition accuses Boris Johnson of US-style plan to deregulate
McAlpine has been picked to challenge Tory incumbent Robert Halfon, who has a majority of just over 7,000 votes. What Boris Johnson's Conservatives want is to hijack Brexit to unleash Thatcherism on steroids .

The expedition's Japanese historian and researcher Yutaka Iwasaki re-translated the original documents and discovered the mistake, giving the team a new area to focus on. Iwasaki reviewed files that included daily radio reports that the naval air base at Naha, Okinawa received at the time.

With the help of autonomous underwater vehicles, remotely operated vehicles and advanced imaging technology, the team discovered the Grayback about 100 miles from the area where it was originally thought to have gone down. As the team was viewing the last bit of this data roll across the screen you could feel everyone shuffling and getting ready to shift gears to secure the ship for getting underway.

'Lost 52 Project, ' a group that searches for sunken WWII vessels, solved the mystery of where the USS Grayback had likely sunk.

"The discovery brings closure to the questions that surrounded the Grayback as far as its sinking and location", Hurney said in a statement to CNN. "We're grateful for the respectful, non-intrusive work Tim Taylor's team performs and the opportunity they provide to remember and honor our history".
