  • Description:

At the beginning of 1945, Germany had the most advanced submarine in the world at the time, the Type XXI. Thanks to numerous technical innovations, it was able to travel under water indefinitely, since the diesel engines sucked in the fresh air required through a special snorkel. The line shape designed for underwater travel and a three times larger battery capacity resulted in the sensational underwater speed of 17 knots. Other innovations were low-noise electric motors for crawling, highly sensitive tracking devices and 2 cm anti-aircraft turrets. The model gives an authentic insight into this pioneering submarine through the split left outer hull wall. Many rooms are faithfully reproduced, including the diesel and electric motors. Insights into the command centre and crew quarters give an idea of ??life under water. The decal includes interior details and identification for U2540, which entered service on 02/24/1945. After a short training trip, U2540 was sunk by the crew in the Flensburg Fjord on May 4th, 1945. Raised again in 1957, it served the German Navy as a Wilhelm Bauer test boat. Today U2540 can be visited as a museum boat.
