Mikh: I don't always take the piss! I was merely suggesting that I do not know the answer to your question but I know someone who might - his name is 'Deeps' and he is the Mod on the SMs thread. PM him and he might know the information you require...

:evil:

Boring day at work..hence from U-boat.net forum...

Pressure vessel thickness on both VIIc and IXc etc was 18.5mm
(only planned type VIIc/42 was to have 25mm plate thickness, but none were built). Don't recall any case of penetration by A/C mach gun fire.


:thumright:
U boats forum

Takes a shipwright to google correctly ^_^;

Interesting words mikh!

Anything to do with this

U534 was never involved in active combat during the Second World War but used for meteorological purposes.

For technical reasons the boat will be cut into three sections for transportation to its new site by water using a floating crane.

At Woodside huge high quality glazed panels installed over the end of each section will allow visitors to see inside the submarine from specially built viewing platforms.

U.534 shot down two aircraft ----Wellington of 172 Sqdrn in August 1944 and one of the Liberators [547 sqdrn]involved in its sinking . When U543 sank she lost 3 crew members the rest of the crew survived.

As it happens, yes, firm I work for may be doing the cutting. But due to a computer crash we have lost some of the info we had on her.
