German Type 212A U-Boat

Part 1Part 2Part 3Part 4

Continuing from last week…

Here are a few videos of the Type 212A in action. The first was pointed out to me by a reader. The second shows the U-34 arriving home after a four month tour. The third and final video is from the German Navy itself and shows U-31. I note that the crew includes one woman. Women will soon begin serving aboard US Navy submarines as well.
