Out of spec[edit]

This page says the 21" was introduced to subs with the O-boats in 1927. This page says the last two M-boats had 21" tubes. They can't both be right.... TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 14:34, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

Possibly the O-class had them as designed, M3 had them when rebuilt in 1927 an afterthought, M4 was going to have them as an experiment but as it was never built... Definitely clarification needed. GraemeLeggett (talk) 16:49, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
That was my thought: the later M-boats completed, or rebuilt, with 21". I don't have the sources to confirm, tho, so if anybody does... TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 02:36, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

"only the second sinking of a surface ship by any submarine since the end of WWII"[edit]

I added a citation needed tag. Could also do with tightening the language as if you include accidental sinkings of fishing craft there are more. Springnuts (talk) 15:31, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

21" (53.3 cm) Mark IX and IX**[edit]

Where 21" (53.3 cm) Mark IX and IX**?--Inctructor (talk) 23:35, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

Inconsistency in article[edit]

Spec block states Mark IV of 1912 had "burner cycle" power. Portion on Mark VIII of 1927 states it was first british burner cycle torpedo. This not consistent -- cant both be right. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Skb999 (talkcontribs) 09:04, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
