Hi, starting to put some info out there about the Type-212CD and other 'stealth shaped' submarines. You'll actually see similar lines in other submarine classes of certain countries

A common theme for future submarines has been going totally sail less. That or extendable types. Would it make the hull stronger in that area if the hull form was to have greater circumferende to allo the sub to ride higher and achieve the same effect as a sail/conning tower?

Interesting.

I wonder if this design owes anything to the feed back from the Australian submarine program in which the Germans were advised their design was deficient in terms of acoustic signatures.
