More Improvements to the tour

One of the improvements made during the Razorback veteran's work week in April was the restoration of the Small Arms locker.

All Navy ships carry a variety of small arms, usually pistols and rifles, both for security and for emergencies.

During World War II, Razorback carried .45 caliber pistols, M1 carbines, shotguns, and Thompson submachine guns.

Modern American submarines generally carry M-16 rifles, shotguns, and .45 caliber or 9mm pistols.

During her service in the Turkish Navy as Muratreis, she would have likely carried AK-74 rifles, the modern version of the AK-47.

The guns on display are non-functioning replica weapons.
