      A rumored big-deal secrete program going on at Keyport when I was stationed there in the late 60's was the evaluation and reverse engineering going on around a few 'found' Soviet torpedoes. Never saw any evidence of that, but sometimes the proofing ship I was on (AKL-17) had to clear the range when some sneaky-poo stuff was going on -- hey, we never *****ed: liberty in Nanaimo city was pretty damned good!

ID:	97763 Possible sure, except for the length -- my launcher is designed for a specific length. As you see here, it's how you paint and mark them that denotes the era and nation of service.

ID:	97760 The smaller unit is 1/96, the bigger is 1/72 -- I was experimenting with electric propulsion but found the weight of the drive sank the unit, even using capacitors as power supplies, they weighed more than they displaced. Damn!

      • David,
        What is the OD of the 1/72 scale torpedo?
        Peace,
        tom
        If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.
