it is not a torpedotube

The thing is there was either two torpedotubes or none, one source says initially ther was a tube on either side but it made a lot os resitance whne the boat travelled on surface, and so they removed them, an other source says it was built without torpedoetubes since it was mainly made for transporting freight, but as the crew on the sub saw several "easy prays" for a torpedoattack during their trips they requested to have torpedoes installed, and so they got two later in war.
What is really the case torpedotubes installed as built or later? - i do not know.
but it was either two tubes or Zero tubes.
and it is not the thing under the bow
