    On their site it appears so


    CHALLENGER DEEP – JAPANESE EXPEDITION
    APRIL 2021
    To wrap up our dives at the Challenger Deep in 2021, we will be diving with the first Japanese citizen to make the journey. We will continue to try and collect as many geological and biological samples as possible, and continue to survey the area to better understand its unique plate tectonics and microbiological life.

    Interesting website! And this caught my eye... (and if you have to ask the price, you can't afford it):

    FOR SALE: Hadal Exploration System is now available for purchase. The package comprises the Full Ocean Depth-rated submersible Limiting Factor; the support ship Pressure Drop, a Full Ocean Depth Kongsberg EM124 sonar, three Full Ocean Depth science landers, and ancillary support craft, equipment, and spares.

    I find this and the Bismarck interesting because it seems that both hulls hit the bottom and slid almost a mile before stopping in their permanent resting place. It's almost as if their hulls acted as they would at the surface.

    That plays a part in it, but most wrecks I have discovered or dove upon are with yards where they originally hit. And those that hit hard usually crumple and collapse and do not move. Having fallen a few MILES to the bottom might have something to do with it.

    Current is another factor.
    It is only a lightly weight destroyer.
