USS Tang was a Balao-class submarine that came into World War II as late as January of 1944. However, its performance would be unmatched during its short career.
Tang would savagely harass the Japanese Navy and become a legend in the process, with Commander Richard O’Kane receiving the Medal of Honor for her last two engagements.
The most successful US submarine in Navy history sank 33 enemy ships in the span of nine months, but would ultimately fall prey to its very own torpedo.
