Default Submarine Specs

I couldn't find the specifications on the submarines in my manual or in the (different) pdf manual on the game DVD. So I assembled a list of specifications. I do not know how accurate these numbers are to the real submarines and I do not know how accurately Silent Hunter 4 models the subs anyway. Additionally, the underwater endurance and the range numbers are particularly suspect. I welcome corrections.

United States S class submarine (1920)
14.5 knots surfaced
11 knots submerged
unknown endurance submerged
200 ft test depth
4 forward torpedo tubes
12 torpedos
3420 - 5500 miles endurance

United States Porpoise class submarine (1935)
20 knots surfaced
8 knots submerged
unknown endurance submerged, very low endurance in game
250 ft test depth
4 forward torpedo tubes
2 aft torpedo tubes
16 torpedos
22,000 miles range

Salmon class submarine (1937)
21 knots surfaced
9 knots submerged
Unknown endurance
250 ft test depth
4 forward
4 aft
24 torpedos
11,000 miles range

Sargo class submarine (1939)
21 knots surfaced
8.75 knots submerged
Unknown endurance
250 ft test depth
4 forward
4 aft
24 torpedos

Tambor class submarine (1940)
20 knots surfaced
9 knots submerged
48 hour endurance submerged
250 ft test depth
6 forward torpedo tubes
4 aft torpedo tubes
24 torpedos
11,000 miles range

20 knots surfaced
8.75 knots submerged
48 hour endurance submerged
250 ft test depth
6 forward torpedo tubes
4 aft torpedo tubes
24 torpedos
11,000 miles range

Gato class submarine (1941)
20.25 knots surfaced
8.75 knots submerged
48 hour endurance submerged
300 ft test depth
6 forward torpedo tubes
4 aft torpedo tubes
24 torpedos
20,000 miles range

Balao class submarine (1943)
20.25 knots surfaced
8.75 knots submerged

The manual lists the maximum range of the Balao and Gato subs as 11,000 miles.

My S-class only gets 12kts surfaced with all engines on propulsion(no charging). And I think 9kts submerged.

I test every new sub on 1st patrol and determine these numbers. Then I know for sure where I stand when the battle starts heating up.
