Speaking of ideas for a novel NavyDoc, at least one WW2 story is half written but there is another parallel in real life.

Several years ago in Auckland New Zealand some radioactive waste was stolen from a Steel Mill. About the same time a scientist Jim Connolly working there disappeared.

It seems the steel mill was processing black iron sands with Thorium content in powerful electric arc furnaces and he had noticed the waste was capable of producing uranium 233.

A popular TV show called "Sensing Murder" did a show on that particular disappearance and two psychics in a controlled blind reading independently suggested the man before he disappeared had recently made contact with some criminal connections overseas. Now that is an interesting speculative thread to develop.

You might find small subs with launch tubes just like the launchers today
with compressed air and solid fuel after all the designers are working for
us now. The best they might do is a dirty bomb of some sort and perhaps not
enough turn heads the other way but enough to hasten any deals.

Dashdespatch raised the issue of Lafferentz capsules, I merely responded to it. The option of a nuke attack with a Ju-390 was the most viable way for Germany to make a nuke attack on USA in September 1944 and it remains to this day the most covered up story of WW2.

Incidentally references to a Ju-390 requiring a crew of ten are rubbish...That is based on a very highly armed proposed version with several machine gun positions. It was quite feasible to operate a Ju-290/390 type with a flight engineer, two pilots and a navigator.

Would you not need someone to aim and release the bomb?
