Description

Type IXB was an improved version of type IX with increased range of 1500 nautical miles and slightly heavier. The designed was improved again in the IXC type.This type was the most successful overall with each boat averaging over 100,000 tons of sinking. They had 22 torpedoes stored which gave a determined U-boat commander a serious striking power which could be used night after night against the same convoy, as was often the case.

  Perhaps the most famous IXB boat was the U-123 under the command of Kptlt. Hardegen which opened up the attack in the US waters in early 1942 known as Operation Drumbeat.U-107, under the command of Hessler, made the most successful convoy mission of the war over with close to 100,000 tons sunk out of Freetown, Africa.

Description

These boats, designed in 1933-1934, were the first of a new generation of German attack U-boats known, as Type VII, they were popular with their crews and very agile on the surface. They also had a much more powerful striking power than the smaller Type IIs. They had 5 torpedo tubes (4 at the bow) and would carry 11 torpedoes onboard or 22 TMA (=33 TMB) mines. They also had the effective 88mm fast-firing deck gun with about 160 rounds of ammunition.

Type VIIB was an improvement on this design with substantially increased range.

All but two (U-29 and U-30, both scuttled in Kupfermühlen Bay on May 4, 1945) Type VIIA U-boats were sunk during World War Two.

Description

Size 1:350  
Introduce: 
     The German Type 212 class, also Italian Todaro class, is a highly advanced design of non-nuclear submarine (U-Boat) developed by Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft AG (HDW) for the German Navy and Marina Militare. It features diesel propulsion and an additional air-independent propulsion (AIP) system using Siemens proton exchange membrane (PEM) hydrogen fuel cells. The submarine can operate at high speed on diesel power or switch to the AIP system for silent slow cruising, staying submerged for up to three weeks without surfacing and with no exhaust heat. The system is also said to be vibration-free, extremely quiet and virtually undetectable.

Description

The only significant drawback of the VIIA was the limited fuel capacity, so 24 Type VIIB boats were built between 1936 and 1940 with an additional 33 tons of fuel in external saddle tanks which added another 2500 miles (4625 km) of range at 10 knots (19 km/h) surfaced. They were slightly faster than the VIIA, and had two rudders for even greater agility. The torpedo armament was improved as well by moving the aft tube to the inside of the boat. Now an additional aft torpedo could be carried below the deck plating of the aft torpedo room (which also served as the electric motor room) and two watertight compartments under the upper deck could hold two additional torpedoes giving it a total loadout of 14 torpedoes. The only exception was U-83 , which lacked a stern tube and carried only 12 torpedoes.

These series omitted the control room periscope leaving the boats with two tower scopes.As mine-layers they could carry 44 TMA or 66 TMB mines. Many of the IXC boats, U-162 through 170 and U-505 through 550 (35 boats), were not fitted for mine operations.

Description

The Type Ⅸ U-boat was a development of the TypeⅠU-boat. It was an excellent ocean-gonging submarine, capable of operating in great distant waters and far more spacious and comfortable than the Type Ⅶ. Its bigger size, however, meant that its diving speed was rather slower than the Type Ⅶ. Without the external saddle tanks of the Type Ⅶ, the Type Ⅸ was a much sleeker looking boat and had greater fore and aft deck space. She had six torpedo tubes, four in the bow and two astern. Up to 23 torpedoes were stored. Secondary armament was provided by one 105 mm deck gun with about 110 rounds. AA armament differed throughout the war.

Description

The Type Ⅶ U-boat, designed in secret during 1933~1944, were a new generation of German attack submarines. They had a much more powerful striking force than the Type Ⅱ.They had five torpedo tubes, four in the bow and one astern and could carry eleven torpedoes onboard or 22 TMA (23 TMB) mines. They also had 88mm fast-firing deck gun and 20mm AA gun. At the beginning of the war, the 88mm deck gun was very useful in sinking merchant ships, enabling the more expensive torpedoes to be saved for larger and more valuable targets. These Type Ⅶ U-boats were the spark plug of the “Wolf Pack�. Their production was in large members. At the same time, German Navy suffered the large losses of this force, losing 784 U-boat, of which 519 were Type Ⅶ U-boat.
