What Happened To The 6th Fleet After Saipan?
In the section Latter stages of the Pacific War it states "The remnants of the IJN 6th fleet were based at Ulithi Atoll in the Caroline Islands until the end of the war." However, clicking on the link to Uliti the information there states, The Japanese had established a radio and weather station on Ulithi and had used the lagoon as an anchorage occasionally early in the war, but had abandoned it by 1944. It makes no reference to the IJN fleet. Is there a different Ulithi Atoll this page was mistakenly linked to? What happened to the IJN 6th fleet after Saipan?

No, this is simply wrong. I don't know off hand where 6 Fleet was based after the fall of Saipan -- if it was not simply disbanded -- but it certainly wasn't Ulithi. I'm removing the statement pending information on where 6 Fleet was based. --Yaush (talk) 16:09, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
