warheart1992 posted a topic in Prototypes and Concept ShipsGermans were into some weird designs and prototypes in every aspect of arms and vehicles. Seems like the VS-5 Torpedo boat or Versuchs Schnellboot 5 was one of them. Basically the answer to the question "can we mix something up that's neither a sub nor a conventional attack boat", VS-5 was a concept proposal by a Rudolf Engelmann (that later produced a working prototype) of a quick and stealthy semi-submersible attack boat armed with 20mm cannons and 533mm torpedo tubes. VS-5 didn't get past that stage due to development troubles, but still quite a weird and interesting design.
