    Giant Japanese submarines 1-400, 1-401 and 1-14 alongside a US Navy tender in Tokyo Bay after the Japanese surrender in August 1945. The catapult tracks and cylindrical hangars for floatplanes can be seen. These large submarines found no use, and after the war were scuttled by the Americans.

    The Japanese No.69 was a second-class submarine based on a Vickers design and the Royal Navy 1’ class. From 1940 she was used for training purposes.
