About Yugoslav submarine Hrabri in brief

Summary Yugoslav submarine HrabriHrabri was built for the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes in 1927. Her design was based on the British L-class submarine of World War I. She was armed with six bow-mounted 533 mm torpedo tubes, two 102 mm guns and one machine gun, and could dive to 60 metres. She participated in several cruises to Mediterranean ports before World War II. During the German-led Axis invasion of Yugoslavia in April 1941, she was captured by Italian forces. Later that year, she received orders for an operation against the Italian enclave of Zara on the Dalmatian coastline, but the mission did not proceed.

Hrabri, along with her sister submarine Nebojsa, was scrapped later in 1941 due to her poor condition. She was given the number N3 but was not recommissioned, and she was never used for naval operations again. She is now listed as a museum ship in the National Museum of Serbia and Montenegro in Belgrade.
