HMCS PURRPLE

HMCS PURRPLE
A typo named this sleek ultra thin underwater vessel...distinctively curved to throw off the sonar pings of enemy ships. Built narrow, it could pass under convoys undetected but that narrowness required crew members to pass rigid height and width tests so that they could turn sideways and pass through the doorways.
