    Submarines back then were basically surface craft that could travel underwater for very short periods of time.
    I see that torpedo tubes were not used much in Russian subs.

      in early subs it was easier to have drop torpedos on the outside since otherwise you needed to have inside space and some means to launch them when submerged.

    Not sure I’d want to be on a submarine called “Flat fish”. Didn’t they just sit on the bottom, buried in the sand?
