On December 14, 1906 the first german u-boat "Unterseeboot U-1" was officialy taken into service.

The Deutsche Marine has announced several celebrations under the name "100 Years underneath the surface" which will take place in Kiel and Eckernföde between 3. and 5. may 2007. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/partyhat.gif

There will be a u-boat parade (sadly no details yet) a day of the open door at the naval bases and an exihibition. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Why all the white water? I would have thought that these things were stream lined.

Since 1943, German U-boats have been designed to spend most of their time underwater. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
Nice pics, Celeon. Of course, we are now looking forward to your photos of the big celebrations. We know you will be there.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Might be fun to do a RL meeting in Kiel and visit some exhibitions (and bars) with a couple of SH III Kaleuns.

Would be fun to walk through a VIIC sharing in-game experiences (and telling the guide what everything does http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif)
