Encyclopedia > Parthian class submarine

The Parthian class submarine or P class was a class of six submarines developed for the Royal Navy. Similar to the Oberon class, and almost identical to the Odin class, the only difference being a different bow shape. The P class submarines displaced 1,475 tons unloaded, or 2,040 fully loaded. They were capable of 17.5 knots surface speed, and 9 knots submerged being powered by a 4,600 hp diesel engine or a 1,350 electric motor, with twin screws. Their crew complement was 53 men. Armament consisted of one 4 inch gun, two 20 mm machine guns, as well as eight 21 inch torpedo tubes (six in the bow, two in the stern). After 1942, surviving submarines were fitted to be able to jettison mines through the torpedo tubes.

(1925 - 1946) Overseas Patrol (1030 words)
With this class it appears that the Admiralty finally decided that the submarine deserved the dignity of a name; thus, the pioneer of the class was called Oberon.
The range of sea-water density in which submarines of the period were designed to dive was quite limited, and it wasn't until late in the building of the Odin Class that a requirement to be able to dive in fresh water was introduced - resulting in changes to the compensating water tanks.
Submarine officers do not visualise any intentional diving to such depths as 500 feet though the ability to do so is an asset in the event of an involuntary deep dive which might cause the submarine to go much deeper than ever was intended'.
