Could be wrong about the boats I roughly based the MTBs on (I forgot to write it down). Also data is from http://www.warshipsww2.eu/staty.php?language=E

and Gavin mentioned something about dodgy stats on that site (at least the old site) so I'm not 100% certain that data is any good...

## Quoted

I have to ask, could it be a type of the part of your source??

Got it from two sources, one of them Wikipedia, which states:

## Quoted

The I-400 was originally designed so that it could travel round-trip to anywhere in the world

and

## Quoted

Each submarine had four 3,000 horsepower (2.2 MW) engines and fuel enough to go around the world one-and-a-half times, more than enough to reach the United States from either direction.
