Middle sub

A submarine based on the Indian I-21 class. It can carry two human torpedoes and a Special Ops Team. originally the plan was to have the sub built in India but the Indians refused. So Mexico has decided to go at it alone with US and Atlantean help.

This sub has one goal: Infiltration of a Spec Ops team to blow up the Panama Canal in case of war. Of course you don't know that...

Overall survivability and seakeeping ability:

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

288 lbs / 131 Kg = 21.3 x 3.0 " / 76 mm shells or 0.4 torpedoes

Stability (Unstable if below 1.00): 1.05

Metacentric height 0.5 ft / 0.1 m

Roll period: 12.0 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

Block coefficient: 0.400

Length to Beam Ratio: 9.50 : 1

'Natural speed' for length: 13.78 kts

Power going to wave formation at top speed: 43 %

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 (% = measuring location as a percentage of overall length):

- Stem: 0.00 ft / 0.00 m

- Forecastle (20 %): 0.00 ft / 0.00 m

- Mid (50 %): 0.00 ft / 0.00 m

- Quarterdeck (15 %): 0.00 ft / 0.00 m

- Stern: 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): 93.3 %

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

Waterplane Area: 2,339 Square feet or 217 Square metres

Displacement factor (Displacement / loading): 249 %

Structure weight / hull surface area: 75 lbs/sq ft or 368 Kg/sq metre

Hull strength (Relative):

- Cross-sectional: 2.79

- Longitudinal: 1.71

- Overall: 1.93

Hull space for machinery, storage, compartmentation is adequate

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
