Some of you may have been confused, if you visited the pictures of the Taiwanese submarines linked by The Sub Report, about the descriptions of the current Taiwanese sub fleet as "U.S. made". (I know I was at first.) In fact, that is accurate; the Taiwanese still have two old Guppy-II boats -- formerly USS Cutlass (SS-478) and USS Tusk (SS-426) -- in commission and operational. You can see why the Taiwanese might want new ones, though, since these two boats are veterans of WWII, and have been operated by Taiwan for about 30 years. I believe they might be the last two WWII-era boats still in operation.
At least one of them still looks pretty good, though.
