Details

Incredibly advanced for its time, it has been said that this is the vessel that might have won the war for Germany, had it appeared two years earlier.  Also known as the Electroboat, the Type-XXI had better facilities for crew, was actually faster when submerged than on the surface, and had a hydraulic torpedo loading system that allowed it to reload extremely quickly after firing.  Increased electrical power gave the vessel a superb range underwater, though it lacked a deck gun.

This pack contains three Type XXI U-Boats.
