Easy Model USS Balao SS-285 Submarine 37311 1:700 Scale Assembled Model

The Balao (SS-285) class was conceived as an improved Gato (SS-212) class submarine.  Balao introduced several concepts to the submarine force when she was commissioned in 1943.  The most important of these being the fhicker pressure hull, using 7/8" high tensile steel plates rather than the 5/8" plate used in the earlier Gato class.  Improvements in hull construction increased the test depth of this class to 400 feet as opposed to 350 feet in the Gato class and fuel capacity was significantly increase which improved patrol radius.  Submerged endurance was 48 hours at 2 knots.  Cruising range was almost 10,000 sea miles on the surface at 10 knots with 116,000 gallons of diesel fuel.  Patrol duration was 75 days.
