It could only be understood that way if there were indeed separate groups
of torpedo tubes. If that's the case, then it's ambiguous however you say
it -- at least if both the groups and the individual tubes are called *DuS* and
numbered. I wouldn't expect that sort of system to survive as a viable
usage, and I would expect the tube groups to be called *ghommey* or
*DaHmey* and
the individual tubes to be called *DuSmey*.
