Description

Image title "Throwing torpedo-proof wall of steel around a ship"
Caption "Mr. Flowers plans to protect ships from torpedo attack by means of rapidly rotating disks of steel. A veritable stream of heavy, whirling disks is shot into the water, forming a steel wall. When it strikes a disk, the torpedo will burst. The twenty-five feet of ocean between the whirling disks and the vessel will serve as a cushion, so that the vessel will not be harmed at all"
