These subf marines, it Is reported, are being turned out by the conveyor bait system. Only between t\yo and three weeks Is needed to produce one und they can be transported by railroad. Germany took over the design for them trom Italy and improved U. It Is assumed here that both Germany and Italy are making them. According to some estimates the submarines may be loosed in thousands to Impede the flow of war materials from the United Stales and Britain's sea borne commerce generally. They would be operated in swarms around the British Isles including the Irish Sea and Atlantic Ocean approaches, because tiieif radius of action is small. They would be based on ports in occupied territory.
