    I've been on the Wilhelm Bauer, thelast remaining Type XXI U-Boot, and it was built in 1943/44. It's also known as U 2450.

    Don't forget the realistic (not at all toyish looking) RC version of the U-boat (forget which version)... can find on Ebay I think. HUGE!

    And yes, I've watched Das Boot...

    Also, nothing beats the look of the U-boat leather uniforms that some of the German heavy tankers are fond of adopting during WWII...

    Curious... are you wearing a crushed officers peak cap in your avatar? Standard U-Boat captain's cap... Being asian, I thought you're more of a Japanese Submarine fan (didn't take a closer look at the emblems, sorry)... lolz Now I realised there should be an eagle at the top of your cap (quite blurr leh)...

    Yes, I watched that too, and love that >_< And the weirdest part is that I'm unable to find anyone around me whom watched that O_O

    PS: It's a Kaptain-Lieutenant mock peak-cap with a red devil emblem on the left representing Erich Topp XD Just a for-fun shot. It's blurred for a very good reason ^_^;;

    Is this the one that didn't make it to war on time? Heard that this one is one of the biggest if not the biggest submarine of the war O_O

    Yea i read about it already... and was pondering if it actually helps in having such submarine in service, since it only launches 3 planes... Of course, not taking into consideration that Japanese are developing biological weapons and might followup with a nuclear bomb >_<

    I actually thought XXI is actually a better weapon developed >_<

    Anyone got any afterthoughts on this Laconia Incident?

    Would the casualties at sea for allies merchant sailors be reduced should this incident never happened?
