I would love to see how they recovered submarines with 1940s technology
Wait judging by the bow torpedo tubes the submarine on the left it’s a Type XXI U-boat. Only 119 out of the 1170 planned ever got built and today only 1 survives due to the war coming to an end.
It never actually got a kill to its name but it was a revolutionary design as it was the first submarine to actually be designed to have better performance under watter. One boat literally had a ship in its sight but before it had time to fire it received a message to return home as the war was over.
