TORPEDO ROOM: INSIDE THE NAZI

TORPEDO ROOM: INSIDE THE NAZI U-505 SUBMARINE - A view inside the torpedo room of the Kriegsmarine U-505 (IXC) on display (since 1954) at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, Illinois. Launched in 1941, the U-505 sunk 8 allied ships before it's capture by the U.S. Navy in 1944 (the first enemy warship to be captured by the Navy since the War of 1812). This U-Boat also holds the distinction of being the first submarine in history in which it's Commanding Officer, Kptlt. Peter Zchech (the boat's 3rd Captain), committed suicide during a combat engagement. Designated for target practice after the War, the U-505 was later saved and restored to serve as an historical museum and as a memorial to the harsh conditions that submariners - of all nations - had to endure during that terrible conflict.

U-505 is the German U-boat cap

U-505 is the German U-boat captured by the US Navy on June 4th 1944, the first warship captured by U.S. forces on the high seas since the War of 1812. In 1954 U-505 was donated to @msichicago where it can still be seen today. A tour of the inside of the U-boat is not only possible but highly recommended. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” #u505 #uboat #msi #museumofscienceandindustry #ww2 #usnavy #chicago
