Type IIIA U-boat
[ img ]

The Type IIIA U-boat was a planned minelayer similar to the Type IA U-boat. It would have had a larger outer hull than the Type IA, and featured a large, watertight cylindrical hangar on the aft deck, which would have carried two small motor torpedo boats. The boat would have carried 48 mines, and used the smaller boats to help lay and recover mines. The project was dropped as impractical.

I've heard of warships carrying midget submarines, I'm not sure if I'd heard of submarines carrying midget warships!

That is why it is impractical.

Funnily enough I have been looking at U-boots this week, including the various projects.
So this is very timely. Great work and superbly drawn as ever.

Germany - Type III (Never built)
[ img ]

Type III was designed in 1934 as a mine-layer submarine. Project was dropped due to design flaws
