Thames Class (1932) SS 
Fleet Submarine

The three boats of the Thames Class were another attempt by the Royal Navy to make submarines work in conjunction with the surface fleet, despite the K Class (1917) showing the concept to be flawed. 

At least the concept was flawed while submarines were diesel powered. 

(Nuclear powered submarines in the US Navy operate successfully as part of an Aircraft Carrier Group. But it is only nuclear power which allows submarines to operate submerged and at high underwater speed, without spending most of their time on the surface.)
