My thought exactly hehe

The sub uses the AIP Fuel cell Stirling Engine, right? (i havent read the info you provided yet so it might be in there) Those things are nice, the worlds best none nuclear propultion systems. Can say under for about 20 (thats what they count for) days Sweden (kockums) made a simular engine but it doesnt use fuel cells so its not quite as good nor quiet as the German system. The swedish sub can stay under in about 14 days. Very nice stuff germany got there!
