got it, later and larger, could launch planes that were not just recce toys like the pearl/sydney era
GS, various I boats were mother ships to miget submarines, but the I-400's were designed and built long after the attack on Sydney. The Japanese used submarines to refuel large flying boats (their version of the Boeing clipper or British Short Sunderland).
The planes the I-400 carried were going to be used to bomb the Panama canal.
