The Cavalla's forward engine room was unique among GATO class subs. As stated in the previous page, she originally had four diesels. After she was converted to SSK classification, she lost one of the forward diesels. The space vacated by the port forward diesel was filled with electrical equipment and a machining bench. Here are the two distillation units that converted salt water into fresh water.
