    Italian Submarine and Convoy Doctrine

    The 450 tube at start were all for H class, Cagni was not operational yet. Nevertheless i have 353 modern and 308 old 450mm torpedoes for submarines which leads me to believe that the sub caliber strategy was not due to lack of 533 but a tactic against merchants which also define the Cagni's...

    I don't think there was restriction for attacks against capital units. But a cruiser would be probably attacked by 2 torpedoes not 4. Nevertheless notice this limitation most common submarine operating in Med were the 600t. They only had 4 fwd tube and 2 stern. No reloads. Only the Acciaio 600t...

    Translations of USSME and USMM books

    There are entire paragraphs that are incomprehensible. I know somewhat what is being said because i have Italian naval terms knowledge and technical background for WW2 period. But for anyone else several paragraphs will be lost. I agree this appears mostly computer generated and then edited...
