Current Torpedo Issue

The CSS Hunley under the command of Lt. George Dixon was the first submarine to sink an enemy warship in combat.

On February 17, 1864 the CSS Hunley sank the USS Housatonic off Sullivans Island, Charleston, South Carolina.

The CSS Hunley itself never returned.

This feat would not happen again until World War One - fifty years later.
