Vacation Day 3 - USS Pampanito - shafer
Aft Engine Room - Pampanito's engines do not drive the propellers directly; instead, they turn electric generators attached to each engine. Power from these generators was switched to charge the main storage batteries, or to supply the electric propulsion motors. Switching was done with the levers of the propulsion control stand and the cubicle behind it. Because diesel engines require large amounts of air to operate, they are used only while on the surface.
