12:52 - Big changes in U-boat fate display
Heavily reworked the display of German U-boats of WWII. Now over 160 U-boats will show two markers on the map; initial German end (surrender, scuttling) and final fate under Allied control. Also over 50 U-boats will now show their post-war fate information in better form. Examples: U-99 (normal fate), U-995 (museum boat in Germany), U-2511 (Operation Deadlight boat).
22:50 - 41 U-boats from WWI found off England?
There is a new story from the Spiegel here translated at ABC news that speaks of no less than 41 German U-boats from WWI being found off England. Read the story at ABC news. We're looking into this for our records.
10:13 - Two new maps added
Added two new map pages; U-boat Dive sites and U-boats discovered since their loss. The new dive map replaces a page until now too hard to find on the site. Both pages need a bit of work (might be missing boats on them) but they are pretty nice already. Also linked all U-boats that are dive sites to the dive map.
