With the Class 212 A submarines the Federal German Navy has available to it the most uptodate conventional type of submarine, equipped with state of the art technology for longduration almost silent travel. This submarine is the first in the world to be equipped with an ultramodern hydrogen fuel cell engine and can operate submerged for weeks independently of external air without needing to come to the surface. The fuel cells are used for longduration operations at moderate speeds, while the dieselelectric engine with batteries is used for highspeed manoeuvres. The submarine is powered by a newlydeveloped sickleshaped propeller. During development the highest priority was placed on reducing the acoustic, magnetic and radar signatures. The armament includes the newly developed heavyweight "Seehecht" torpedo that is launched from six torpedo tubes. The submarine is expected to travel at speeds of ca. 10 knots surfaced and ca. 20 knots dived. Weight: 1,450 t.
