USS Nautilus (SS-168)
Off the Mare Island Navy Yard, California, 15 April 1942, following modernization.
Note her very heavy deck armament of two 6"/53 guns; also embrasure in her upper hull side, just in front of the forward gun, for newly-installed topside torpedo tubes. At least two torpedoes are on deck above this location, probably being prepared for stowage below.
