Book Description

Since WWI, the terms “German Navy” and “U-Boats” have been virtually synonymous. Non-nuclear submarines remain a mainstay of today’s German Navy (Deutsche Bundesmarine).

The German shipbuilding industry remains a global technology leader in conventional submarine development. Modern day “U-Boats” are sought after by NATO allies, by Israel, and by other nations around the world. In fact they are a leading export item for Germany’s military industry. And the German Navy’s U-Boat flotilla is a welcome partner in ongoing NATO and EU security operations.

Some experts believe that German conventional submarines have actually assumed the technological lead over nuclear submarines.

“U-Boats ‘Made in Germany’” takes a look at current and future submarine technology being produced or developed in Germany today. Advances in Air Independent Propulsion and Fuel Cell Technology; state-of-the-art Command and Control systems such as the ISUS90 system currently deployed on Class 212A U-Boats; improved sonar, communication suites, and IFF systems; acoustic and electric signature reduction technology; and current as well as developmental weapon systems against underwater, surface, land and aerial targets are all discussed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Useless January 28, 2012
Verified Purchase
As near as I can tell, this is pretty much a sales brochure for selling modern-day U-boats to various navies, except that the detailed specifications have pretty much been deleted. There was no discussion whatsoever of the tactical and strategic employment of non-nuke boats in today's military environment, nor was there any discussion of what kinds of counter-measures these admittedly excellent boats are vulnerable to. In short, when I was done I wanted to slap myself for wasting the money.
