Two of the Royal Canadian Navy's former Oberon-class submarines in Hamilton.  The Oberon class was a follow-on to the earlier Porpoise class, and they appeared almost identical.  New hull materials gave a deeper diving depth, and additional soundproofing was provided.
12-oclass-08-30-11-pb.jpg (61190 bytes)
 Another view.  These submarines were very quiet for their day, and stayed in service with various Navies past the year 2000.  At the time, they were state of the art conventional subs, despite being based on a late-WWII German hull design.
13-oclass-08-30-11-pb.jpg (69828 bytes)
These O-class were diesel boats with little space for the crew.  Hot-bunking was de-riguer.  They were originally fitted with two stern-facing 'short' torpedo tubes, but the advent of reliable guided torpedos made these obsolete. These stern tubes were converted by the Canadian Navy for the installation of a towed array sonar

The final member of this class, HMS Onyx (not pictured), was the only conventional submarine to see service in the Falkland's War of 1982, where she was used for special operations in and around the islands.
