USS Albacore AGSS569: The Crew Tell Their Stories

Following the end of WWII, experts agreed that in order for submarines to improve their survivability in wartime, they would have to improve their submerged velocity and evasive capability. That insight led to the development of the groundbreaking USS Albacore. Its teardrop design was a breathtaking feat of engineering that allowed far greater speed and maneuverability.
