Arado received an order for four prototype’s of which two had to be fitted with a ventral float.
These can exit the vehicle with a rear ramp, or stay within the vehicles protection via 4 roof hatches in the rear.
Although hydrogen-oxygen propulsion had been considered for submarines as soon as World War I, the idea was not very successful until recently due to fire and explosion concerns.
In the Type 212 this has been countered by storing the fuel and oxidizer in tanks beyond your crew space, between your pressure hull and outer light hull.
The gases are piped through the pressure hull to the fuel cells as had a need to generate electricity, but at any moment there is only a very small quantity of gas present in the crew space.
The German government placed an initial order of four Type 212A submarines in 1998.
The German Submarine Consortium built them at the shipyards of HDW and Thyssen Nordseewerke GmbH of Emden.
Different parts of the submarines were constructed at both sites as well and then half of them were shipped to the respective other yard so that both HDW and Thyssen Nordseewerke assembled two complete submarines each.

carrier version of the Boxer is considered the ‘baseline’ variant of the vehicle.
On 21 April 2008 the Italian Navy ordered another batch of submarine in exactly the same configuration of the original ones.
Some upgrading should involve materials and the different parts of commercial derivation, in addition to the software package of the CMS.
The intention would be to keep the same configuration of the initial series and reduce maintenance costs.
The German Navy ordered two additional, improved submarines in 2006, to be delivered from 2012 on.
They will be 1.2 meters longer to give additional space for a fresh reconnaissance mast.
Both different requirements were mixed right into a common one and, due to significant updates to the look, the designation was changed to Type 212A since that time.
The tank variant in this instance must not be that important concerning engine sounds, since the A4, A5, A6, etc. designations only describe improvements in armament, ABC protection, electrical components, IR-sights, etc from what I found.
The export-oriented Type 214 submarine succeeds the sort 209 submarine and shares certain features with the sort 212A, such as the AIP fuel cell propulsion.
It really is however assumed that up to October 1944 a total of 435 aircraft were built.
Even prior to the trial’s were concluded, Arado received an order for a series of six Ar 196A-0 models.
- This gives it an edge in covert operations, as SCUBA-equipped commandos operating from the boat can surface close to the beach and execute their mission more quickly and with less effort.
- At the start of the 1990s the German Navy was seeking an upgraded for the sort 206 submarines.

Partly owing to the “X” arrangement of the stern planes, the sort 212 is with the capacity of operating in as little as 17 metres of water, and can come much closer to shore than most contemporary submarines.
This gives it an advantage in covert operations, as SCUBA-equipped commandos operating from the boat can surface near to the beach and execute their mission more quickly and with less effort.
Its primary goal was the construction of identical boats and the start of a collaboration in logistic and life-cycle support for both navies.
At the start of the 1990s the German Navy was seeking a replacement for the Type 206 submarines.
Initial study started on a sort 209 improved design, with AIP capability,
