Specifications and history of the HIJMS Submarine I-11
Could you please advise me as to where I might find brief specifications and history of the HIJMS Submarine I-11. I tried the Bob Hackett web site at www.combined. fleet which gave me the tabular record of movement but I'm after her crew capacity, armament and size. Any help you are able to give will be most appreciated.
She was a Type A1 sub.
The I boats were long range Fleet submarines, some of whom carried an aircraft ( As did I-11 ) but some of this class swapped the aircraft for a second deck gun.
A brief history of this Submarine follows, you may already have this detail:
Ken, I hope these few notes will serve your needs. If I am able to help further please just ask.
Thank you for the information. It's exactly what I needed. I must say you are the fastest reply in the west. I was not expecting an answer until the end of next week what with Easter and all that.I will get back to you [if you dont mind] when I finished the article I'm writing and see what you think. Great web site!
