Someone on subsim.com posted this:



By the end of WWII, conning towers were badly crowded. This drawing shows that of the Sealion (SS-315) in 1945. The two large open circles on the right are the hatches, up from the pressure hull (above) and up to the open bridge (below). Wartime additions included the third mast (for SD) passing through the conning tower to the left, and the radar scopes to the right of the torpedo data computer. The shaded circles indicate the location of the crew in the conning tower.

This would be a good diagram to put in every fleet boat museum control room.

This is from and proper credit should go to: Norman Friedman, "U.S. Submarines Through 1945," Annapolis, Naval Institute Press, 1995 (or 1994).

Thanks, Fred.  I tried to find the exact website through navsource.com, but I never really get anywhere with that site.

Navsource is an excellent source and site. But it's not the same type of resource as is, the Pampanito's site, which is chocked full of the "Basic Fleet Submarine" manuals.

True, but I was trying to find a specific page on navsource that the other guy was referencing.  I figured out that my miskate was putting .com at the end of the address, instead of .org.

Here's the site that I was looking for... http://www.navsource.org/archives/08/08315.htm
