Oberon Class (Prototype)
Prototype Patrol Submarine
Oberon was the first British post war designed overseas patrol submarine. Developed from the L class she became the prototype of nineteen similar and not successf ul boats.
Designed for operations in the Far East, Oberon was given the theoretical range of nearly 10,000 nautical miles and carried an outfit of sixteen torpedoes. As the time availabe for operations in the patrol area depended on both buker capacity as well as the number of torpedoes, it had been not easy to find the correct relation between the two.
1,350 electric motor.
1 x 4 inch gun. 2x machine gun.
