Interesting.  I have planned a V-2 launching U-boat but was going more the Golf-class approach with missiles in an extended sail:

... and the noise it makes while submerged can be detected by people standing on a beach half an ocean away.  ;D

I got a personal tour through HMAS Rankin (see below) yesterday whilst it was in for major maintenance.  Quite interesting to see the sub and its systems all opened up.

Sort of forget you are inside one after a while, if you've ever been on the O boat at Sydney the difference is amazing.

Yep, should see them when the diesels are stripped.  My first time on board I was amazed at the space in them, the new ones will be even bigger.

I've always thought these black and white images of shipwrecks in general have a nightmarish tone. Maybe it's the implication of the unseen sea monster now beached, where it can not be ignored.

And then, you've got these submarine aircraft carriers that the cruisers could protect...

And let us not forget they would be escorting the large submarine LSD envisioned in the 1950's.  This was covered in Norman Polmar's Cold War Submarines: The Design and Construction of U.S. and Soviet Submarines, 1945-2001 .

Those 1920’s designs were basically for submersible cruisers performing the older role of
the cruiser: long range independent patrol, control of the sea lanes, commerce raiding etc.,
not so much the later cruiser role of fleet screening, escorting, and outright defense.
They’d be ineffective in those roles.

First approach to Submarine Aircraft Carrier and Battleship. These are based on 2 bottom KGV hulls (remain of waterline cutting) glued together.

This may be the wrong thread - however;
I am thinking of a few projects for the US enters WW2 early GB. I have a model of the USS Gato (1941). Ok she was launched in 1940 and I am trying to come up with some way of making her look "different". I had wondered about camouflage or maybe a different deck gun. I am at the point where she gets a few AAA mounts, but not as many as later in the war. Any advise/ideas welcome? Cheers Geoff.
