Alone and far from home
Compared to other submarines of the time, Gato-Class submarines could almost be considered luxurious. They were air-conditioned, equipped with refrigerators, and even had a bunk for every crewman. Nevertheless, they were still claustrophobic, dangerous postings. Of 77 Gato-Class vessels launched, 20 were lost. Despite their casualties, the American Submarine Fleet devastated Japanese shipping and the IJN. Gato-Class vessels like Wahoo, Darter, Dace and more are legends in the annals of naval history to this day. Kit features display stand, detailed 4-in gun, and detailed 20/40mm guns on the sail.
