It was taken 2 years ago, at an army-owned island outside Helsinki. There are guided tours there ONCE A YEAR, for 50 people only. I was lucky enough to get a ticket. I don't know more about it than that the armour was pierced by the same type of russian shell that is pictured, sometime between 1939 and 1944. The intact shell pictured was later found at abandoned russian battlefield, and taken there to show the force of the shell.

Good lord, compared to the VIIC, the IIA seems so primitive/cramped no?

I love the VIIC...my fave in SHIII

Have you reposted them somewhere else? I'm a WWII sub freak and would have loved to see them! Especially a Einbaume... never seen one's inside.

Wow!

I can't imagine serving on one of these... so claustrophobic! And I thought Type VII was cramped, but this is like a dog house! Imagine this little boat in a heavy sea, rolling and stomping and crew being tossed around... like that storm scene in Das Boot!

Is this finnish built prototype for Type II series?

Once again - a BIG thank you!

Yes, Finnish built prototype. only surviving "Type II" in the world!

Glad you enjoyed them! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/touche.gif
