That is awesome. Too bad you people can;t pronounce Schuka the right way http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Almost everybody says scuca, which means boredom, not a kind of predatory fish...

Superb job on the British S and T Classes - there's a lot of info on them on my website...

T Class (http://home.cogeco.ca/%7Egchalcraft/sm/TClass.html)

S Class (http://home.cogeco.ca/%7Egchalcraft/sm/SClass.html)

I'm trying to get confirmation, but I think periscope depth on a T Class was about 40ft - about 13m. Note their torpedo load, too - the second and third batches had Eleven 21" tubes
(8 forward, 2 amidships, 1 aft), 17 torpedoes; it could fire a salvo of eight at a time (and on one occasion, did). The British had good boats but poor Torpedo Data Processing (apart from the skipper's eye and brain), so the answer was to throw a salvo at a target. The largest salvo in history was fired by Lieutenant (later Vice Admiral Sir) Arthur 'Baldy' Hezlet who, as Commanding officer of HMS Trenchant during WWII, sank the Japanese battle-cruiser Ashigara which he hit with five torpedoes out a salvo of eight from a range of four thousand yards!

Wow Geoff !! Great info ! Where might the mid tubes be? Are they on the side of the tower ? And if so... did it hurt the surface speed of the boat did you know? That looks like a big ol' boat and I take it that it was powered with quad engines? Rolls Royces ? Or does it just look bigger than it was....Then again...Im writing this and I should be clicking on that link I know see you put up ! Dohhh !

unfortunatley its too late to add any more subs to 1.04 at this late stage, but we have added the T class sub to the dutch roster as they did have 5 or 6 I belive.
Please by all means send me those drawings, (im especially interested in the O21 class) though and I might be able to use them in the future... I cant promise though Im afraid...

The Dutch Navy received two "T" class subs during WW2- Hr.Ms. "Zwaardvisch" (ex-HMS "Talent") and Hr.Ms. "Tijgerhaai" (ex-HMS "Tarn"). "Zwaardvisch" saw action in the Far East, sinking "U-168" and the IJN minelayer "Itsukushima" but "Tijgerhaai" arrived too late to see combat. Post-war a few further "T" class were transferred, but they are, of course, of no interest.
The Dutch Navy also received the "S" class HMS "Sturgeon" which became Hr.Ms. "Zeehond" in 1943 but she was almost exclusively used as an Asdic target while in Dutch service. On the other hand, the "U" class HMS P.47 became Hr.Ms. "Dolfijn" in 1942 and did see action, mainly in the Eastern Mediterranean. Hope this helps.

This answers the question, I think: HMS/M Tabard...

http://home.cogeco.ca/~gchalcraft/sm/images/tabard2.jpg

Surface speed just above 15 knots, dived at 8 knots.
