The Bundesmarine: Guarding the Baltic

58 Ships in 1990

The German Navy is one of these institutions that passed through an exceptionally tumultuous history linked to the country's creation, which began with the Prussians in the 1700s as the Preußische Marine, became the Reichsflotte in 1850, the North German Federal Navy until 1870, then the Kaiserliche Marine until 1919, the Reichmarine until 1933, then the Kriegsmarine until 1945, the German Mine Sweeping Administration until 1948, and with the decision to let Germany rearm inside NATO, the Bundesmarine from 1956 until 1990. It's part of the Bundeswehr at large, the German federal army.

Capitalizing on its ww2 expertise in submarines, Federal Germany built far more of this type for export than any other country to date German shipyards are in fact world champions in exporting conventional submarines, with more than 120 sold to 17 countries, on four continents. In comparison, the Bundesmarine had at all times in the cold war about 15 at sea. Here, the U-1 of the Type 205.

Today the Marine is a shadow of its past self, especially the humongus Kaiserliches Marine that almost became the second world's largest, compounded by NATO's strict missions and policies for the Baltic and budget cuts following the end of the cold war. Nevertheless, what the Bundesmarine could not do in terms of domestic needs, more than compensated in exports, especially through the very successful line of diesel-eletric submarines, MEKO frigates, Lürssen's FACs and numerous weaponry and detection, mine warfare systems which allowed the domestic German naval industry to punch well above its weight.

Type 205 submarine

The Type 205 was a class of German diesel-electric submarines. They were single-hull vessels optimized for the use in the shallow Baltic Sea. The Type 205 is a direct evolution of the Type 201 class with lengthened hull, new machinery and sensors. The biggest difference though is that ST-52 steel is used for the pressure hull since the Type 201's non-magnetic steel proved to be problematic. Type 206, the follow-on class, finally succeeded with non-magnetic steel hulls.

German submarine U-1

U-1 may refer to one of the following German submarines:

SM U-1 (Germany) (1906), Germany's first U-boat, now preserved in the Deutsches Museum in Munich; served in the First World War as a German training submarine for the Kaiserliche Marine; now a museum ship

During the First World War, Germany also had these submarines with similar names:

SM UB-1, a Type UB I submarine launched in 1915; transferred to Austria-Hungary on 12 July 1915 and renamed U-10; sunk on 9 July 1918

SM UC-1, a Type UC I submarine launched in 1915 and sunk in July 1917

German submarine U-1 (1935), a Type IIA submarine that served in the Second World War and was sunk in April 1940

German submarine U-1 (1961), a Type 201 submarine of the Bundesmarine, launched in 1961 and scrapped in 1967

German submarine U-1 (1967), a Type 205 submarine of the Bundesmarine that was launched in 1967 and sold in 1991

U-1 or U-I may also refer to:

SM U-1 (Austria-Hungary), lead boat of the U-1 class submarines for the Austro-Hungarian Navy

German submarine U-1 (1935)

For other ships with the same name, see German submarine U-1.

German submarine U-1 was the first U-boat (or submarine) built for Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine following Adolf Hitler's abrogation of the terms of the Treaty of Versailles in 1935, which banned Germany possessing a submarine force.

Forgotten Super-Weapon of WW1: Type UC-1 Uboat

There are some weapons of World War One are better known than others. It's natural that some less used, or less successful, types remain obscure. But in the case of mine laying submarines they are largely forgotten despite being one of the most successful weapons of the war. This article will focus on the first German type, the UC-1 Class. It was a very simple, innovative and effective design.

The UC-1 was the first dedicated mine-laying submarine to enter service (nod to the Russian boat Krab), and it took the Allies by surprise. The submarines were not armed with any torpedoes. Instead each boat carried 12 moored mines which were dropped out of the bottom of launch tubes passing through the forward hull. In many respects it was the first vertical launch system.

SM UC-1 was a German Type UC I minelayer submarine or U-boat in the German Imperial Navy (German: Kaiserliche Marine) during World War I. The U-boat had been ordered by November 1914 and was launched on 26 April 1915. She was commissioned into the German Imperial Navy on 5 July 1915 as SM UC-1.

SM UC-1 - Wikipedia

German Type UC I submarine

The Type UC I coastal submarines were a class of small minelaying U-boats built in Germany during the early part of World War I. They were the first operational minelaying submarines in the world (although the Russian submarine Krab was laid down earlier). A total of fifteen boats were built. The class is sometimes also referred to as the UC-1 class after SM UC-1, the class leader. The Italian X-class submarine was a reverse-engineered and modified type of the UC-1-class.
