    Soda or sand ? Blasting

    My bet is she was scuttled to keep this advanced models technology out of the world's hands ? (click to enlarge --sorry can't figure out how to enlarge post the post.

    Update-- U534 was used primarly as a traning and test vessel and never actually sunk a single ship but did have the rare credit of having shot down an attacking allied plane. She was finally sunk by the RAF after ignoring orders to surface and surrender by German high command at the end of the war. Why ? not as I suspected that she was an advanced model thus scuttled but because she was carrying the new secret highly advanced homing torpedos that her Captain was trying to keep out of the hands of the allies.

    Don't worry, it has been posted about 6 times. I'm sure you can find one. Besides I can still see it.

    Hi dskira,
    How is your build? - The vessel in that image would make one very nice "expedition" vessel.

    Dskira,

    Is the Maagen shown above now private? Converted from Fisheries patrol duty to civilian?
    Looks too nice to be a patrol vessel and has no "teeth".
