The Torpedo Compartment of the Submarine S-49 has four torpedo tubes and carries in war time 12 torpedoes. The torpedoes are fired from the tubes by compressed air carried in the tanks on the lower left of the picture. After leaving the boat, the torpedo runs on an engine within the torpedo for about five miles at a speed of about 40 miles an hour
