Description

The development of the XXIII U-boat was given a high priority. In order to shorten its development time, Dr. Walter carried out on the basis of the original XXII U-boat. The initial design was not completed until June 1943, and the corresponding construction work was also carried out in shipyards in Germany, France, Italy, and the German-occupied Soviet Union. The XXIII U-boat uses a welded hull and is also the world's first submarine with a single-layer hull design. In terms of power, the boat uses the MWM RS-348 diesel engine, which has been used as a diesel generator on the IXD U-boat. The electric motor is AEG GU 4463/8, which is a simplified model of the electric motor used on the VII submarine. The boat is very good and has excellent maneuverability both on the surface and underwater. The emergency dive speed is only 9 seconds. However, the construction of this advanced submarine faces extremely serious logistical problems. Due to the advancement of the Allied forces on the ground, continuous bombing, and lack of raw materials and labor, many submarines under construction were destroyed and construction work was interrupted. Of the 280 orders for this boat, only 61 were delivered.
