Looks like somebody's bad idea. They look like 1 or 2 man submarines. The kind of suicide boat the losing side comes up with when they have run out of options.

Eh? Used at Pearl Harbor, so there from the 'start'. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Type_A_Ko-hyoteki_class_submarine)

Maybe you're thinking of the Kaiten (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaiten)?

I remember that a mini-sub pilot captured the gang on Gilligan's Island.
