Hi guys.

Joe is correct, Taiwan currently opperates 2 Guppy class submarines.

I could be mistaken but I don't think that Taiwan ever had 4 of the Guppies.
They do opperate two Dutch submarines along with the two Guppies giving them a total submarine force of 4 boats.

The two Dutch submarines are not WWII boats, but are getting up there in age and are not state of the Art boats any more.

When the Guppies were transfered to Taiwan the Torpedo tubes were disconnected so that they were not opperationable. It is widly believed that the tubes have been hooked back up.

Taiwan only uses their Guppies today for training purposes, they do not actively deploy.
