Default [REL] Playable British T Class submarine (Triton)

Class T submarine v 1.73



Bridge view



TBT



British periscope view



Class T submarine



British 4 inch DG and turret







The mod comes with the submarine which original 3D mesh was made by JU_88, a new tower and tub, a British 4 inch DG with turret, .50 AA machine gun and British Mark VIII and VIII** Torpedoes.



Sub Specifications :

The Royal Navy's T class (or Triton class) of diesel-electric submarines was designed in the 1930s to replace the O, P and R classes. Fifty-three members of the class were built just before and during World War II, where they played a major role in the Royal Navy's submarine operations. Four boats in service for the Royal Netherlands Navy were known as the Zwaardfisch class.

T-class submarines fought in all theatres in the Second World War and suffered around 25 percent losses. They were particularly vulnerable in the Mediterranean, where their large size made them easily visible from the air in the clear waters, but they had much more success elsewhere.


Group One :

These fifteen pre-war submarines were ordered under the Programmes of 1935 (Triton), 1936 (next four), 1937 (next seven) and 1938 (last three). The boats originally had a bulbous bow covering the two forward external torpedo tubes, which quickly produced complaints that they reduced surface speed in rough weather. These external tubes were therefore removed from Triumph during repairs after she was damaged by a mine and Thetis during the extensive repairs following her sinking and subsequent salvage. Only six survived the war, less than half.

Power Burner-cycle, 322 hp @ 45 knots

Notes: The Mark VIII was the first burner-cycle torpedo in service. The principal World War II version was the Mark VIII** and this torpedo was used far more than any other British torpedo during the war. 3,732 were fired by September 1944, 56.4% of the total. This torpedo was still in use in British ships as late as 1983 and is probably still used today in other navies.

October 1942, HMS Templar, coast of Africa

Preparations for the operation Torch are in progress. However, the coastline is defended by the Vichy navy, navy of tratiors and collaborants. Our submarine is now patrolling off Casablanca with an order to eliminate any Vichy ships attempting to disrupt the invasion.

18 october 1942, 1:00, 300km SW off Casablanca

Radar reports several contacts, closing from the South. Maybe small task force...

2:10 GMT
Visual contact, identified as Vichy Bourrasque-class destoyer and a battlecruiser of Dunkerque class. HMS Templar is diving.


2:26
TF is closing fast, sonar reports another 2 destroyers behind the battleship.
Submarine is now in position and fires full salvo of 10 torpedoes from approx. 2,5 km distance.


2:28
6 or 7 explosions were heard, target is hit. Escort is now searching for HMS Templar.


2:30
Dunkerque, hit by full salvo, starts taking heavy list at port side and 2-3 minutes after being hit she capsizes and sinks beneath the waves.

Most of the crew is probably going with their ship.
[img=http://img64.imageshack.us/img64/7296/sh4img20100430173153312.th.png]

2:40
3 escorts are searching for Templar, but they have failed to find us. Submarine is creeping away and later, at the sunrise, HMS Templar is surfacing.


30. october 1942, 9:30

Templar returns to its base at Firth of Forth.

single mission convoy south of japan - realism 37%

laid in wait at 250 feet speed 1 knot till I thought I was in the middle of things, some ships had already passed me..

I attacked from 3-4000 yards but the convoy was zigzagging ?

my first salvo missed but for one torp

then I started shooting from inside the convoy ! much better..

T'Would be nice, but Keltos would need plans if he wished to do it.

He'd also need to clone himself a few times as well I think....!
