The Type 21 U-boat...the most advanced submarine of its day! Only a few survive, this Kreigsmarine "boot" was the model for the USS Nautilus! This sub class could have changed the course of the war but was not operational til the last weeks of the war. The only attack made was a mock attack on a British battleship and the British never even detected the sub's presence. The sub got away -- and then surrendered.

Type XXI U-boats, also known as "Elektroboote" (German: "electric boats"), were the first submarines designed to operate primarily submerged, rather than as surface ships that could submerge as a means to escape detection or launch an attack.
