We do a walkthrough of the German U-Boat U-11 in Fehmarn, Germany. Built 1966-68 by Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft (HDW), Kiel, Germany.
Now it’s located in Fehmarn, Germany as part of the U-Boat Museum there.
The Type 205 was a class of diesel-electric German hunter-killer U-boat submarines. They were single-hull vessels optimized for the use in the shallow Baltic Sea. The Type 205 is a direct evolution of the Type 201 class with lengthened hull, new machinery and sensors. The biggest difference though is that ST-52 steel is used for the pressure hull since the Type 201’s non-magnetic steel proved to be problematic. Type 206, the follow-on class, finally succeeded with non-magnetic steel hulls.
