There has to be a gap between the outer decapping plate and the main belt, or it will work like a (weaker than thickness) single solid belt. Judging by Nathan Okun's work, that gap will be from 1.6 to 3 calbers.

Also, an exterior belt is limited in slope to about 10 degrees. Interior belts can be more heavily sloped, of course.

But then there is the other question: Is it worth it?

Perhaps they could be sold? I'm sure that would still run into opposition but to be fair thats what I did with the 4 D-22 class subs following my own snafu.

I'm completely thinking OOC here, but there are several nations that would love these ships.

There is a gap. The gap on the Littorios was 600mm so this can be smaller. Both are still external to the hull. Limit on inclination is 15°+ on the outside but the hull form needed is a bit wasp-waist with bulges jutting out below the waterline.

Just out of curiousty, when can we see the full stats on the Adua and Perla class subs?

Well those currently _are_ accurate stats as SS is crap at simming submarines. I could do a SS report but it would be more or less worthless.

To my knowledge however everyone else uses SS to sim their subs, however crappy the program may be for designing subs its still the benchmark.

Ok then. I'll do them in SS but as I said, they'll be worthless.
