"Entlüftung" means to let the air out = flooding = opening the upper valves, nice find

edit:
"ventilation of the two saddle tanks in the boat's center" => MBT #4 (Tauchbunker 4) are actualy two, port and stb. and are close to the center (slightly ahead)... i don't think that Bucheim ment a negative or trimm tank, these are the forward main-ballast tanks (?)...
