High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! HM Submarine X1 was
conceived and designed as a submersible commerce raider for the
Royal Navy; at the time of her launching she was the largest
submarine in the world. The idea of a submarine cruiser had been
mooted as early as 1915, but was not put into practice until 1921.
X1, which was based on the uncompleted German U-173 class of
2,000-ton "U-Cruisers," was laid down on 2 November 1921 at the
Naval Dockyard Chatham and completed on 23 September 1925,
commissioning in December 1925.
