Germany's Type 212 Submarine Is Making Berlin A Naval Power Again

Quote:
Berlin announced recently that it will build two more Type 212As over the next decade, and Poland has shown interest in leasing two of the German boats. The small subs supposedly cost around 371 million euros ($394 million) each, which implies that the current German U-boat force cost less to build than a single one of the $2.8 million Virginia-class nuclear-powered attack submarines used by the U.S. Navy. (To be fair, fluctuating exchange rates complicate the price comparison.) The Italian Navy, meanwhile, fields four Type 212s, designated the Todaro class, the last of which completed construction in 2015. Rome intends to build an additional two.

I have been on the type 212 in Germany and also the greek 214's they are very good bits of kit the problem is Germany does spend enough on defense and thus these boats are well under used.
