will have quite enough to occupy tliout in looking out for thomaalvoa.
Tho essence of a torjKHlo lKot is attack by surprise, to got in unol
served, launch a torpedo and get nwny. If yoi simply remain quiot
and trust in an obstruction which you put around you, mi active,
vigorous assailant is bound to find a soft place in it.
I do not regard the sttbmarino ns progress. In my mind it is a
somewhat HAXDICAITKD TORPEDO HO AT. As I said, a tor
pedo boat depends on suddenness, and it nlo dcHnU on invisibility,
by which suddenness of attack is aided. If it can loavo it base, roach
its objective, deliver its attack and get nearly Imck to its Iaumi boforo
daylight it htw a very grent prospect of uacaping with impunity. To
do this it is obvious that IT MUST HAVE IHOll
SPEED. Tho submarine leotno inrisiblu only
when near tho object of attack. It ia then more
completely invisiblo than tho ordinary torpedo bout,
but it has to pay what I regard as the very hir;li
price of relatively extreme sluwiuss in movement.
1 don't think a submarine has been couslructad, or
is Iikolv to he, that can cover moro than nine or ten
kiiots por hour. Therefore tho apparent advnntap" o" TEMPO
