X1 U.S midget submarine. Initially used hydrogen peroxide for power, but was later switched to diesel/electric after and onboard explosion.

Good job Subculture! Perhaps.......maybe......the X1 stenciled on the side helped? You probably knew what it was anyway. Gantu, that looks chalenging, looks modern , but small. Besides the size difference the hull is similar to the 212 but the sail is different. Whats the periscope looking thing up front? Give us a clue. Looks like it also has an X-tail.

If I'm not mistaken that is a MODEL of some modern sub (virginia ?),
used to determine it's operational properties before
spending a few more billion bucks ;-)

<edit> on second thought, those do not have an xtail.
south korean midget ?
repositioning sock in mouth now...

I believe that one is a wwII russian sub. I have seen it on pictures, no details though.

I dont know how true it is but I have read that during WW2 ,Russian subs were ineffective and their commanders unmotivated. I wonder though if there were any Russian aces to the likes of Deally or Mush Mortan? :|

Love the Una class. I found some additional photos of the Una. Looks like a Kilo class with an x-tail :D

The UNA class looks like a 6 man sub. As far as your last pick it seems to be a piloted torpedo of some kind hence the windows. I wouldnt want to ride in it!
