I'd have sworn I saw an article on one once, but then I have been known to have weird dreams also. (Grin)

Well surface craft do have tubes angles off the bow and can be set back towards midships.  I'll keep researching to see what I can find.  It would have to be a foreign design I think.

John, how about the Permit Class. From what I remember they had sonar in the bow and had their 4 torpedo tubes aft towards the middle of the ship. Can't remember how it looked, I assum it was a regular torpedo room with tubes slightly angled?

It seems that the Permit-class boats did have 4 tubes midships.  They carried SUBROC anti-submarine missiles and Mk 48 torpedos.  But I cannot find anything on how they were installed. I assume they were installed horizontally.

Of course the Permit-class was originally the Thresher-class.  But the name of the class was changed to the second boat built after the Thresher sunk.

Correct and the Thresher had the same layout. The last few ships in that class were longer, I thiink, but don't know about wider. I'll ask Bob Miller. He was on the Thresher.
