The fleet submarine of the United States Navy during World War 2. This six layer cutaway is so finely detailed that museums have given their stamp of approval.
Considered the peak of WWII submarine development, the first of 73 Gatos entered service and an additional 122 thicker skinned Balaos started delivery in April of 1943. Out of 195 boats, 184 actually saw action in the war.
