Hello, I'm not an expert but my interpretation is the following (but maybe I'm wrong):
1st picture: "Marcello" class (two guns)
2nd picture: "Marcon" class (one gun)
3rd picture: maybe a "Cagni" class
I hope that someone else can contribute
Regards
Fabrizio

Apologies, a typo: "Marconi" instead of "Marcon"

Thank you very much for your answer, Fabrizio... :wink:
I am not an expert on Italian submarines either and the few photos on the net do not allow an easy identification for non-experts...

Here, another image from the same source
Any idea ??

Hello Sturm78,

according to the lates Erminio Bagnasco and Maurizio Brescia, "I sommergibili italiani 1940-1943 - Parte II Gli oceani" (Storia Militare Dossier n.12 January-February 2014 - page 148), the image shows the submarine Cappellini in Bordeaux, in November 1940.

Regards.
