The Brin class submarines were five Italian submarines that served in the Regia Marina during World War II. All ships were built by Tosi. Two boats were replacements for Archimede class submarines secretly transferred to the Nationalists during the Spanish Civil Warin 1937. The class were partially double hulled.

  • “During World War II, we only heard of the Livermore class. And whatever happened to the Bristol class?” The evolution of the Benson and Gleaves ( Livermore ) classes perpetuated a pattern established with the 1,500-ton classes, i.e., similar designs prepared by two sources, Bethlehem and Gibbs & Cox, with small numbers of ships authorized.
  • When World War I erupted in 1914, President Woodrow Wilson pledged neutrality for the United States, a position that the vast majority of Americans favored. Britain, however, was one of America.
