Naval warfare has seen numerous innovative and devastating weapons throughout history, each designed to gain a strategic advantage over the enemy. One such weapon, born out of desperation during World War II, was the Kaiten suicide submarine. With their primary purpose being to cause maximum destruction by sacrificing their own crew, these submarines represented a tragic chapter in naval warfare.
Origins and Development: The Kaiten suicide submarines were developed by the Imperial Japanese Navy towards the end of World War II. Facing a deteriorating military situation and in dire need of unconventional tactics, the Japanese sought ways to counter the overwhelming naval power of the Allied forces. Inspired by the successful deployment of human-guided torpedoes, known as the “kaiten” or “return to heaven,” the concept of the Kaiten submarine was born.

Project 908 Triton-2 small submarine was a highly classified project during the Cold War, and some mystery still surrounds the project. Museum display exemplars and models depict an entirely enclosed vessel with a vestigial conning tower of sorts and various portholes for surface navigation.
Tasks solved by the midget submarine “Triton-2” include covert transportation underwater, disembarkation and return of combat swimmers when they perform special tasks of the Navy in coastal areas. Project 908 “Triton-2” developed by CPB “Wave” St. Petersburg. Development of the project began in 1970, and in 1974 the first prototype was made. Triton-2 submarines were in service with the Soviet navy from 1975 to the 1990s.
