Description
HMCS POPTOP

This steam powered submersible sported a stainless steel bow rigger that was used to hoist the vessel up on deck of a waiting heavily armed frigate after firing a round of torpedos. They could elude detection and depth charges this way much like seals do when under attack from predators.
