Thank you @VedranSeawolf359 for posting here. Some nice pictures! I especially like the one of the Mk 44 gyroscope. It is also amazing to think how well the mk 44 torpedo has held its own over time, despite apparently only having a speed of 30 knots in the early versions in the late 1950s as an anti-sub torpedo. They could still hit! In game I'm unhappy if I don't get 60 knots on my torps (and still I miss bigger ships). 😄

Thank you for the wonderful pictures. You may not be aware, but we (HU), had a writer, who wrote an entire series of novels about seafaring , aimed at youngsters,  in which the Adriatic, Fiume, Pola (Pula)  Zengg (Senj), the Nautica , the Nehaj fortress , the bark Ragusa and the schooner Jadran (both fictional ships), play a pivotal role and serve as setting.

His name was Dékány András 



He himself was, for a brief period, a pupil of the aforementioned Nautica.  His books were among my childhoods favourite books.
