USS X-1, the U.S. Navy's only midget
submarine, was built by the Engine
Division of Fairfield Engine and Airplane
Corporation. It served for research and
testing to assist the Navy in evaluating its
ability to defend harbors against other
small submarines. The tests helped to
determine the offensive capabilities and
limitations of this type of submersible.
