The new miniture submarine's of the Latvian Navy. These ships have been built to fuiltify the requirments of the subchaser training fleet, to serve as coastal defense ships, and to serve as harbor assault ships.

Baltica, Latvian Minisub laid down 1938

Displacement:

25 t light; 28 t standard; 32 t normal; 35 t full load

Dimensions: Length (overall / waterline) x beam x draught (normal/deep)

(42.45 ft / 42.45 ft) x 8.00 ft x (6.00 / 6.45 ft)

(12.94 m / 12.94 m) x 2.44 m x (1.83 / 1.97 m)

Armament:

2 - 21.0" / 533 mm, 2.000 ft / 4.57 m torpedoes - 1.700 t each, 3.400 t total

In 2 sets of submerged bow tubes

Machinery:

Petrol Internal combustion generators plus batteries,

Electric motors, 1 shaft, 356 shp / 266 Kw = 14.00 kts

Range 1,450nm at 10.00 kts

Bunker at max displacement = 7 tons

Complement:

6 - 8

Cost:

£0.013 million / $0.051 million

Distribution of weights at normal displacement:

Armament: 2 tons, 6.7 %

- Torpedoes: 2 tons, 6.7 %

Machinery: 10 tons, 30.5 %

Hull, fittings & equipment: 7 tons, 22.1 %

Fuel, ammunition & stores: 7 tons, 20.4 %

Miscellaneous weights: 7 tons, 20.3 %

- Hull void weights: 6 tons

- On freeboard deck: 1 tons

Overall survivability and seakeeping ability:

Survivability (Non-critical penetrating hits needed to sink ship):

-10 lbs / -5 Kg = -0.1 x 6 " / 152 mm shells or NaN torpedoes

Stability (Unstable if below 1.00): 1.26

Metacentric height 0.2 ft / 0.1 m

Roll period: 8.1 seconds

Steadiness - As gun platform (Average = 50 %): 0 %

- Recoil effect (Restricted arc if above 1.00): 0.00

Seaboat quality (Average = 1.00): 0.00

Hull form characteristics:

Hull has a flush deck,

a normal bow and a cruiser stern

Block coefficient (normal/deep): 0.550 / 0.559

Length to Beam Ratio: 5.31 : 1

'Natural speed' for length: 6.52 kts

Power going to wave formation at top speed: 83 %

Trim (Max stability = 0, Max steadiness = 100): 50

Bow angle (Positive = bow angles forward): 0.00 degrees

Stern overhang: 0.00 ft / 0.00 m

Freeboard (% = length of deck as a percentage of waterline length):

Fore end, Aft end

- Forecastle: 20.00 %, 0.00 ft / 0.00 m, 0.00 ft / 0.00 m

- Forward deck: 30.00 %, 0.00 ft / 0.00 m, 0.00 ft / 0.00 m

- Aft deck: 35.00 %, 0.00 ft / 0.00 m, 0.00 ft / 0.00 m

- Quarter deck: 15.00 %, 0.00 ft / 0.00 m, 0.00 ft / 0.00 m

- Average freeboard: 0.00 ft / 0.00 m

Ship tends to be wet forward

Ship space, strength and comments:

Space - Hull below water (magazines/engines, low = better): -180.7 %

- Above water (accommodation/working, high = better): 0.0 %

Waterplane Area: 230 Square feet or 21 Square metres

Displacement factor (Displacement / loading): 123 %

Structure weight / hull surface area: 19 lbs/sq ft or 91 Kg/sq metre

Hull strength (Relative):

- Cross-sectional: 1.46

- Longitudinal: 3.76

- Overall: 1.60

Hull space for machinery, storage, compartmentation is excellent

Room for accommodation and workspaces is extremely poor

Ship has quick, lively roll, not a steady gun platform

Caution: Lacks seaworthiness - very limited seakeeping ability

.5t deck weight: 1 single 23 mm gun and 1,000 rounds of ammo.
