Hi Guys

Im a bit confused concerning two aspects concerning the type 1XD2 U-boat.

Please see the the blueprint I posted below via the photoshack website below. Firstly I noticed there are 12 torpedo containers on the upper deck structure, 6 port and 6 starboard, why is it mentioned that this type of u-boat only carried 10 and not 12 external torpedoes?
Secondly I circled another two 'containers' could some please identify these?

Kind Regards
Juliet
