The open seas weren’t the only place for U-boats to be found wreaking havoc on shipping during WWII. To combat Allied ships in littoral waters, the Kriegsmarine (German Navy) comissioned a new class of small, advanced subs mid-war. These were the Type XXIII “Electroboats”; the shrunk-down “brown water” brothers of the larger Type XXI. Check out the 1/144 Trumpeter Type XXIII on the Out of Box Page to see a sub with more bridge options than torpedoes!
