Thanks for your informative answer!
The reason that I asked was that when I recently wisited an old Russian Whiskey class submarine (in Kalmar harbour, Sweden), I ended up discusing the weapons used on it esp the torpedoes.
And since it was partly based on the "electric boat" XXI, wich I have a vauge memory of in some cases beeing armed with wire-guided topedoes.
I thought that the whiskey also had wire guided torpedoes, wich it aparently didn't have.

So where the wireguided torpedoes used in the war, and on what submarine types, and did they work?

I tried to find some info on early wireguided torpedoes on the web, but without any success. I'd apreciate if someone could give me some links to any online info.
