The U-47 was the most successful ocean-going submarine of the German Kriegsmarine during World War II. She entered service in 1938. The ship became famous for its daring attack on a British naval base, during which it sank the battleship HMS Royal Oak. During her service the crew of the U-47 sank a total of 32 units with a total tonnage of 202514 tons. The ship was lost in the Atlantic in March 1941, symbolically ending the period of German submarine successes. U-47 was a medium sized vessel designed for long patrols in ocean waters. It had a displacement of 857 tons when submerged. On the surface, its range was 6,500 nautical miles, which it could cover at a speed of 12 knots. The depth of safe immersion was 220 meters. Underwater she sailed at a maximum speed of 8 knots. It was armed with 14 torpedoes that could be fired from 5 launchers. The crew consisted of 44 sailors and officers.
