Here are some images of Revells 1/72 scale Electric Boat Companies Gato Class Submarine. This design was the basis in which all other American World War Two submarine designs were based off of. Like all American submarines of that time the Gato (which is a kind of fish) class were named after fish. However these 311 foot long fish had a 50 caliber deck gun, 4 10x21 inch torpedo tubes with 24 torpedos, a Bofers 40mm cannon and a Oerlikon 20mm cannon. At 52 inches long this model is big and it has about the same level of quality as the two type VII U boats.
