Kusaie (Kosrae; 162.98E 5.32N) is a mountainous island in the eastern Carolines. Rugged and heavily forested, It is about 8 miles (13 km) long with a maximum elevation of 2080' (634 meters) and is surrounded by a fringing reef. The island has a decent anchorage, and the Japanese stationed a garrison here, but the airfield was never brought into operation and  the island was bypassed by the Allies.
