Was the torpedo storage amount for the IXD-2 different than the IXC boats? The Current Order No. 60 of 1944 mentions the following:

-4 in forward tubes
-6 in forward racks
-2 in aft tubes
-2 in aft racks

I am guessing that would mean an additional ten torpedoes were stored externally. How many would be stored in the forward deck containers and aft deck containers?
