The first recorded torpedo attack by a submarine in the naval history of the world took place during Balkan wars 1912-1913

In the morning of 22 December [O.S. 9 December] 1912 the Ottoman light cruiser Mecidiye sailed out of the Dardanelles on a scouting mission. At 10:40, Delfin launched a torpedo against Mecidiye from a distance of 800 meters, but failed to sink it, as the torpedo broke surface and passed by the ship.
