    Barracuda on the surface prior to World War 11. The distinctive bow was often referred to as resembling a pug dog with a bone in its mouth. These boats were awkward and were not used extensively as patrol submarines during the war.

    The Bass, Barracuda's sister, with the modified surface ship 5in/51 deck gun. Bass suffered a bad fire during the war, which killed 24 of her crew. The boat was refurbished, but only used in a limited training role.
