Originally printed in 1946, The Fleet Type Submarine series of technical manuals remains unparalleled. Contained in its pages and those of the companion texts are descriptions of every operating component aboard a fleet boat.
Hydraulic Systems, Navpers 16169, describes the system that powers the submarine's steering mechanism and diving planes. It is also a richly- illustrated textbook that discusses hydraulic forces and their methods of employment. It includes a detailed description of the operation, installation, and repair of various parts, and outlines common problems and remedies.
Originally classified "Restricted", this book was recently declassified and is here reprinted in book form. Some illustrations have been slightly reformatted, and color plates are reproduced in black and white. Care has been taken to preserve the integrity of the text.
