New German weapons help neutralize Russian and American nuclear submarines

Germany is demonstrating its leading position in the field of stealth submarine manufacturing with the Type-212A model, capable of approaching and destroying the most powerful nuclear submarines in the world today, according to National Interest.

The secret of the Type-212A submarine lies in its hydrogen electric battery system, allowing it to operate almost silently for weeks without the need for a bulky and expensive nuclear reactor.

Air independent propulsion (API) technology has been around since World War II, but after that it was not focused on by the world’s naval powers and only focused on developing submarines using nuclear engines

Germany began developing the Type-212 submarine using API technology in 2002, has high capacity and cruise speed, with very few moving parts to reduce noise and can dive deeper than submarines

The Type-212 submarine has a displacement of 1,800 tons when submerged.

The Type-212’s electric battery system is installed in the space between the two shells, providing enough energy for the ship to move underwater continuously for 3 weeks.

The Germans designed the Type-212A for the role of reconnaissance and hunting surface ships.

Type-212 can operate in shallow water with a depth of only 17 m.

The current German submarine force has unimpressive parameters.

Another advantage of AIP submarines is their low price compared to nuclear submarines.

Berlin has just announced plans to build two more Type-212A ships in the next 10 years at a price of 394 million USD/ship.

`This explains why the Type-214 version is popular in many European and Asian countries,` concluded writer Sebastien Roblin.
