INFO

The Seehund (German: "seal"), also known as Type XXVII, was a successful series of German midget submarines created during World War II. Designed in 1944, and operated by two-man crews, the submarines were used by the Kriegsmarine during the closing months of the war, sinking nine merchant vessels and damaging an additional three, with 35 losses mostly attributed to bad weather.

    @Zandgard I figured you just didn't know. I think the problem wasn't the subs, but the way the Kreigsmarine used them. Their bases were not very close to England at that point of the war and their intent was to disrupt the flow of men and supplies from the UK into France. A four day mission would require constant alertness and no opportunity for sleep. From the details I can find, the worst aspects of the program were the one-man boats, where drug-infused chewing gum was issued to the pilots.

    This is a kid-friendly site, so I maybe I should retract my comments from earlier. Obviously, we can't talk in very much detail about such things on here. The sub was a solid design, just the way they tried to use it was awful.

    @F104Deathtrap I didn't mean to disrespect anybody. If something was wrong in one of my statements I can just delete it tell me. I would never do something for disrespecting the death will having full knowledge whatever the side.

    I'm pretty mad about your description of this thing, @Zandgard

    You've made an excellent model, and the sacrifices of the Ubootwaffe should be remembered, but the Seehund project was a sick testament to just how desperate and degenerate the Third Reich had become.

    The crews of those "boats" were children. Given almost no training, forced to take dangerous drugs to keep them continuously awake for 96 hour missions and sitting in their own urine and feces, those poor kids died in the North Sea like kittens drowned in a sack. The whole German minisub program amounted to little more than kamikaze, but with the illusion of a chance for survival.

    @GermanWarMachine since he as a interior make it would make it useless to dive
    And for the water that doesn't show I have no idea I guess that if the interior is narrow enough

    If the losses due to weather is higher than losses due to enemy action, I cannot really tell if this is a "successful" design or not...

    @Tang0five I think in some way this is a little more ""enjoyable"" than classic u-boot
    The mission were shorter the sub were less complex so less chance of failure and you didn't go as far as other u-boot so more chance do be rescue but its still very close to a death sentence especially in end of the war
