    With the new Class 212 A submarines the Federal German Navy has available to it the most up-to-date conventional type of submarine, equipped with state-of-the-art technology for long-duration almost silent travel. This submarine is the first in the world to be equipped with an ultra-modern hydrogen fuel cell engine and can operate submerged for weeks independently of external air without needing to come to the surface. The fuel cells are used for long-duration operations at moderate speeds, while the diesel-electric engine with batteries is used for high-speed maneuvers. The submarine is powered by a newly-developed sickle-shaped propeller. During development the highest priority was placed on reducing the acoustic, magnetic and radar signatures. The armament includes the newly developed heavy-weight "Seehecht" torpedo that is launched from six torpedo tubes. The new submarine is expected to travel at speeds of ca. 10 knots surfaced and ca. 20 knots dived. Weight: 1,450 t. A total of four submarines, built by Thyssen Krupp Nordseewerke and HDS, will go into service with the Federal Germany navy in the autumn of 2005. The Italian navy will receive two submarines of this class to be built by the Adria Fincantieri shipyards. Many details!! Colors: 9 84 90 91 92
