Default Wreck found in the river Foyle could be a WWII mini German sub

Interesting. The so called "mini" submarine looks like a type XXIII U-boat.

Makes a nice change for Derry to get in the news at the moment while all the titanic fever is heading for Belfast and Cobh.

It would really help if that picture had a measure scale on it so we could determine the length, whatever it is it looks fairly intact. I'll update this thread if i hear any more news.

Been following this for a while, don't think it is a u-boat, whilst I don't have a definitive scale for the sonar image it is fairly short, too short to be a VII, IX or XXI. It also shows a flat deck, eliminating type XXIII as they had pretty much no deck, leaving type II's. There were 4 type IID's sunk during operation deadlight, however the image shows a pronounce bulbous deck and although the type II's had a bulbous deck it was much slimmer
