  • While in Manila Bay, Philippine Islands, Nachi survived the first two waves of a US Navy carrier attack, but was caught by about 60 aircraft from a third wave from USS Ticonderoga and USS Lexington at 1250 hours. She was disabled by five bombs and two or three torpedoes. At 1400 hours, she was able to even her list and prepared to be towed away by destroyer Akebono. At 1445 hours, another wave from USS Lexington hit Nachi with five torpedoes, twenty bombs, and sixteen rockets. Nachi sank at 1450 hours. 807, including Captain Enpei Kanoka, were killed; 220 survived. ww2dbase [Nachi | Manila Bay | CPC]
