What the heck? Is that ship even able to drive without sinking with a damaged hull like this?

Btw. I like the notice at the top left "not related for publication - confidential" ....hmm Tuccy will get some trouble!

The trauma endured incredible how much of the steel structure. Have been made very good technique, good quality, tough steel. Great picture!

This is a manned torpedo.

 

The X class subs were real submarines with outside dropable explosive charges on each side of the ship.

Yeah, the Chariot that had been inspired by the Italian "Maiale" ("Pig"), the nickname for the SLC (Siluro a Lenta Corsa, Slow Running Torpedo).

I have a book about that mission and that those midget submarines got towed be bigger submarines, it also happend that the ropes?(not sure if it where rope), did break and the midget submarine where floating on the sea. at the end a few succeeded in placing bombs under the hull of the tirpitz. but the germans did succeed in moving the ship enought from the explosived, so that damadge was less then it should be. 

I am sorry for my bad english. btw
