However, under construction were 4 submarines of the F-class, 4 of the G-class, and 9 submarines of the H-class.
Each class of submarine marked a distinct improvement in the quality and performance of the previous class of submarine.  The early submarines of the "A", "B", "C", "D", and "G" classes utilized gasoline engines.
With the exception of the "G" class submarine, all the submarines which followed were also powered by diesel engines.

 Submarine   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
Royal Navy submarines classes, including ballistic missile submarines, are letter-based; thus, all boats of the Swiftsure class begin with the letter S and the Trafalgars, the letter T. Though this has been the way with all Royal Navy submarines, they were originally designated alphanumerically, such as HMS A1 of the A-class of 1903.
Submarines did not have a major impact on the outcome of the war, but they did portend their coming importance to naval warfare and increased interest in their use in naval warfare.
The Soviet Union suffered the loss of at least four submarines during this period: K-129 was lost in 1968, K 8 in 1970, K -219 in 1986, and Komsomolets (the only Mike class submarine) in 1989 (which held a depth record among the military submarines—1000 m).

Vast improvements in the efficacy of batteries allowed submarines to run for many hours on electric power whilst submerged, and the coming of the petrol-driven internal combustion engine allowed for an efficient means of powering the submarine whilst on the surface and also converting a portion of that energy to revitalise the aforementioned batteries.
Therefore, proponents of the submarine were, at last, able to rebut their critics with tangible, existing evidence that they now had at hand the basics to create a functional submarine capable of sinking the enemy.
Submarines also acted as piquets for the Fleet, providing reconnaissance to allow the Royal Navy to intercept any hostile units leaving harbour: for example, the Battle of Heligoland Bight in 1914 was brought about because a submarine had transmitted a sighting report to waiting surface units.

 (1902 - 1910) A, B and C Class
This, the submarine A1, although based on the Holland Class was of all British design (Capt Bacon, Inspecting Captain of Submarines, and Vickers, Sons and Maxim).
Laid down in 1902, she was the first of a class of thirteen - all completed at barrow between 1903 and 1905, except for A13 which was an experimental craft, fitted with diesel engines instead of petrol engines, which was completed in 1908.
The first submarine to carry a boat appears to have been C1, which had a 10t berthon boat - a practice that was adopted for the remainder of the class.

She was an improved version of an earlier submarine built in Stockholm in 1882 and based on the Resurgam, a submarine designed and developed by an Englishman, The Rev. William Garrett of Liverpool.
By 1893, development of the working submarine was well advanced, and the US Naval Board recognised that there was a place for the submarine in naval warfare, and laid down a set of requirements for naval submarines.
The submarine was lifted from the seabed in Plymouth Sound and brought into No 12 Dock in Devonport Dockyard, where she was lowered onto a cradle.

When commissioned, the Plunger Class submarine displaced 107 tons; was 63'10" in length; had a beam of 11'11"; drew 10'7" of water when in diving trim on the surface; could make 8 knots on the surface and 7 knots submerged; was manned by seven officers and men; and was armed with one 18-inch torpedo tube.
In January 1904, the submarine torpedo boat was assigned to the Reserve Torpedo Flotilla.

 British B class submarine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The B class was a class of eleven submarines of the Royal Navy, built by Vickers and launched in 1904–1906.
The B class was similar in design to the A class, intended for coastal patrol work.
The design was intended to overcome the limitations of speed, endurance and seakeeping that affected the boats of the A class, and the boats were substantially longer and heavier.

 Eyes from the Deep - Periscope History of the US Navy | Sub-Log.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
Early submariners realized early in the game that they needed a way to see at least some distance above the surface of the water while submerged, without compromising their boats’ inherent stealth.
Similar primitive devices were first added to submarines in the 1880s, but they provided only a very poor view of the surface, often less than 10 degrees wide, and were generally considered next to useless.
If the periscope tube was too short, the submarine hull could easily broach the rolling waves, but if it was too long, the image became too dim and was significantly distorted by vibrations in the mast induced by the moving water.

All of the class were propelled underwater by battery-powered electric motors and on the surface by shaft-drive Wolseley petrol engines of 400 bhp (A1), 450 bhp (A2-4) or 600 bhp (A5-12).
