Japanese submarine aircraft carriers
Although the U.S. Navy remained discreet about it, the Japanese were ahead of the Allies in several areas of submarine development and underwater weapons. The I-400 class of Japanese submarines was the largest in the world until the 1960s when the nuclear fleets were built.
The Japanese applied the concept of the "submarine aircraft carrier" extensively. Altogether 47 submarines were built with the capability to carry seaplanes. Most IJN submarine aircraft carriers could carry only one aircraft, but the I-14 had a hangar space for 2 aircraft, and the giant I-400 class submarines could carry 3.
