Bruinvis Versus U31

The Royal Netherlands Navy submarine Bruinvis and the German U31 fired training torpedoes at each other on 29 May.

The submarines had to locate each other, maneuver into position and then fire their dummy torpedoes at each other.

There was no winner as the submarines intentionally fired the torpedoes under each other.

The submarines also practiced firing torpedoes at surface ships.
