    Guys, were you talking about Man'd torpedoes like the Italian ones used in the Med?
    22ft torpedoes which was driven by 2 man crew sitting astride it. launched by subs and then they guided the Timed missile to target, attached it to the bottom of it and got off pretty quickly before it blew!!!
