Size: 36 x 12 inches. This RESTRICTED blueprint type diagram poster shows the cross-section of a Typical Submarine, one of the U.
Navy's most infamous ships used during World War II. During World War II, 314 submarines served in the US Navy, of which nearly 260 were deployed to the Pacific. During the war, 52 US submarines were lost to all causes, with 48 directly due to hostilities. Submarines sank 1,560 enemy vessels, a total tonnage of 5.3 million tons (55% of the total sunk).Submarines, though only about 2 percent of the U. Navy, destroyed over 30 percent of the Japanese Navy, including 8 aircraft carriers, 1 battleship and 11 cruisers. US submarines also destroyed over 60 percent of the Japanese merchant fleet, crippling Japan's ability to supply its military forces and industrial war effort. This feat was considerably aided by the Imperial Japanese Navy's failure to provide adequate escort forces for the nation's merchant fleet.
