This is the first look at the super-secret 212 Class Air-Independent German Submarine, said to be the most modern non-nuclear submarine in the world.

This tape was gotten out of Germany at the beginning of 2005 and we see the newest, most modern non-nuclear submarine in the world, the German 212 Class air-independent submarine capable of running engines at depths of 1,000 feet (or more) and able to remain submerged for weeks at a time.


On this DVD we see the first of the 212 Class, U-31, on sea trials operating with a frigate.  There are views from the shore, by divers around the boat underwater and all through the boat - compartment by compartment and there is a thorough look inside the CIC (central control room) with views of all the high-tech equipment and displays.  There is even a look at the one item on a submarine that is always forbidden - the propeller!

There is a comparison between U-31, the newest 212 Class long-range boat to be built and U-30, the last of the old 206 Alpha Class coastal boats.  These 212 Class boats are extremely modern - streamlined, ultra-quiet and able to remain submerged for weeks at a time.  All these qualities make for a super-submarine.
