The shipwreck was discovered at the deepest depth recorded in the Philippines

USS Samuel b. The Roberts warship sank on October 25, 1944, on the island of Samar in the Philippines, in the eastern central part of the archipelago after a war with Japanese forces occupying the former American colony.

The American company Caladan Oceanic this month used a human submarine to photograph the ship’s crust and other parts.

“At an altitude of 6,895 meters (depth), it is the deepest wreck ever discovered and explored,” wrote Victor Vescovo, founder of the Galaton Oceanic and director of the submarine, in several social media messages.

The so-called Leyte war was part of the most intense fighting ever recorded between US troops and the Japanese Empire in the Philippines.

The USS Samuel sank with three other ships, including the USS Johnston, discovered by the same company in 2021 at a depth of nearly 6,500 meters, the deepest shipwreck until this latest discovery.

However, the USS Gambier Bay and USS Hole, which the research firm considers to be at greater depths, have not yet been discovered.

The famous Titanic sank at a depth of about 3,840 meters.
