Type 225 U-Boat
From the Kaiser to you, the latest and greatest yet in submarine technology, the Type 225 U-Boat.
About this creation

MANUFACTURER: Kaiserliche Marine, various ship builders

PROPULSION: nuclear reactor

TOP SPEED: CLASSIFIED

CREW: 25-40 officers and men

ARMAMENT: eight 100mm forward torpedo tubes, four aft, high-explosive acoustic torpedoes, ballistic high-speed super-cavitating torpedoes, anti-ship missiles, SAMs

ARMOR: titanium-plated carbon fiber plating

HARDWARE: advanced sonar, radar, federal armed forces network interface

SOFTWARE: federal armed forces network

The Type 225 was designed to usher in a new age of submarine warfare, with the most advanced new weapons, propulsion, navigation and detection systems.

U-Boats such as the Type 225 hunt in packs, as per traditional tactics, often over long distances. Often they will hunt alone along a coastline, around a gulf, or even up a river.

In wartime, U-Boats are used not only to hunt enemy commerce, but of course, to sink enemy warships. The Type 225 is most adept at this largely due to its rocket-propelled super-cavitating torpedoes, who, using super-cavitation, in which a large bubble of water forms around the torpedo thus streamlining it, can travel miles upon miles at very high speeds and cut a ship the size of a supercarrier in half. The Type 225 can also fire missiles from its torpedo tubes, which can provide versatility among weapons.

In peacetime or wartime, U-Boats often also escort friendly convoys or fleets, and can spot the enemy many miles ahead and eliminate them before they become a threat.

The silent hunter stalks its prey...

Then why'd every navy in the world start making submarines with cigar-shaped hulls?

They have a point, something like this http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/225623 would look a lot better, and it would be more realistic.

Aye, for crying out loud! It's not supposed to be SQUARE! It's supposed to be thin, slender, shaped like a knife blade, made to cut through the water, just like a... knife. I would imagine a knife to go a lot faster through water than anything cigar-shaped would. Especially a cigar. The reason why it looks so boxy is that it's LEGO, how do you make a knife-shaped hull out of blocks??? Although sometime I might take the hull of my newest destroyer and use it as a U-boat hull...

Although I struggle to see how a square sub has less drag that a cigar-shaped one, This is a cute and effective little build. ~T

That is flawed logic. Cigar shaped are far more hydrodynamic than the old shape- why else would they have switched?

Nice, but one thing: those hulls are obsolete and are much less efficient than cigar-shaped hulls.

Quoting Brendan Dore Nice, but one thing: those hulls are obsolete and are much less efficient than cigar-shaped hulls.
They're more slender, thus, less drag, actually.

How does super-cavitating work again? You'd need an air supply or something to make the bubble in front of it.

Not bad! Not a fan of the MegaBloks conning tower, but it does fit. How much are we talking about/unit?
