U-2540, inside

Since the boat was reused after the war many original parts have been replaced by newer versions.

Main armament in the bow, from origine 6 tubes and a supply of 20 torpedos.

An installation of high value for the moral support, the kitchen.

No U-boot without batteries. 372 of these cells were in place on several decks. The entire plant provided 360 Volt DC with a max of 12.000 Amps/hour. In "low energy" mode, good for 50 hours submerged action.

Connection diagram in a compartment. The batteries were made by Varta.
