Voith Schneider propellers IIRC.

 

I'd link but I'm on my phone.

With the VSP, magnitude and direction of thrust can be set steplessly and as necessary. A circular disk with movable and controllable blades installed at a 90 degree angle to the disk rotates at the vessel bottom.

The magnitude of thrust is determined by the rotational speed of the disk; the blade angle determines the direction of thrust. VSP is a perfect propulsion system for precise maneuvering, even under adverse conditions.

Interesting. I always assumed they were mounted side-by-side. Now that I search for them again they clearly were inline. I'm surprised and impressed that they modeled them. They usually were retracted into the hull.

Wow...that explains how CVs seem to turn on a dime despite their size, like they're just floating on air...:cap_wander:
