  1. 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.
