Science Art: Torpille Moderne/Torpille Ancienne from Dreadnought ou submersible by Olivier Guihéneuc, 1916

Two torpedoes, modern (as of 1916) and ancient. That’s about the limit of my French. The book is about naval warfare, and was published while World War I was going on, and at a time when submarines were still kind of science-fictiony. Actually, they still kind of are, aren’t they?

I guess these torpedoes are how a submersible would attack a dreadnought.

Dreadnought ou Submersible is available to read on archive.org, if your French is better than mine.
