Disappointed to see the Torsk is no longer painted with the shark teeth face. But still an awesome stop at Baltimore Inner Harbor.

USS Torsk SS-423 Submarine

One of two surviving Tench-class Fleet submarines, this World War II submarine is open for tourists. The ship's original radio callsign was NKST, and its radio room, amateur radio station NK3ST, fires up several times a year for special occasions.
