In early 1945, Germany owned the XXI type, the most advanced submarine in the world. Thanks to numerous technical innovations, it was able to drive underwater without restrictions, since the diesel engines sucked in the fresh air required through a special snorkel. The line shape designed for underwater rides and a triple the battery capacity resulted in the sensational underwater speed of 17 knots. Other innovations included low-noise electric motors for crawling, highly sensitive location devices and 2 cm anti-aircraft turrets. The model gives an authentic insight into this groundbreaking submarine through the split left hull outer wall. Many rooms are reproduced in great detail, including the diesel and electric motors. Insights into the command centre and team living quarters give an idea of life underwater. The decal includes interior details and identifiers for U2540, which was put into service on February 24, 1945. After a short training trip, U2540 was sunk by the crew in the Flensburg Fjord on May 4, 1945. Lifted again in 1957, it served the Federal Navy as the test boat Wilhelm Bauer. Today U2540 can be viewed as a museum boat.
