Project history

Greece was the first country to adopt the German-designed and -built Type 209 single-hulled submarine, which has since been purchased by Turkey and many South American navies. She can dive to 250m, and has a powerful battery of torpedo tubes (plus reload torpedoes) and a comparatively small crew. These submarines (first series of Type 209/1100) had proved to be rather too cramped to take all the equipment, electronics and crew.
