Kamikaze Midget Subs?

#1


Came across this picture of Japanese Midget Subs and it occurred that they would have been used as 'suicide subs,' If so, protecting a fleet would have been difficult, any thoughts?

The Type A midget sub originally intended to be carried by larger Japanese ships and deployed in the path of an enemy fleet, where they would disrupt its operations with torpedo attacks. They were indeed used in the attack at Pearl Harbour and in the 1942 raids on Sydney, Australia, and Diego Suarez in the Indian Ocean and at Guadalcanal.

Oh and I will have one - £50?
