London Naval Treaty limits global submarine production.

  • London, England

Submarine shipbuilding and production became regulated with the Apr. 22, 1930 signing of the London Naval Treaty.  The United Kingdom, Japan, and the United States agreed not to build any new capital ships until 1937, declaring that international law applied to their utilization.  This was a continuation of the Washington Naval Conference, though was slightly modified because of the feelings between Great Britain and the United States.
