With the Class 212 A submarines the Federal German Navy has available to it the most up-to-date conventional type of submarine, equipped with state-of-the-art technology for long-duration almost silent travel. This submarine is the first in the world to be equipped with an ultra-modern hydrogen fuel cell engine and can operate submerged for weeks independently of external air without needing to come to the surface. The fuel cells are used for long-duration operations at moderate speeds, while the diesel-electric engine with batteries is used for high-speed manoeuvres. The submarine is powered by a newly-developed sickle-shaped propeller. During development the highest priority was placed on reducing the acoustic, magnetic and radar signatures. The armament includes the newly developed heavy-weight Seehecht torpedo that is launched from six torpedo tubes. The submarine is expected to travel at speeds of ca. 10 knots surfaced and ca. 20 knots dived. Weight: 1,450 t.
