Surrendered U-boats at Horten

Post by lionfish » 30 Apr 2018 16:58

Hello,
On ebay.de we have nice new picture showing u-boats surrendering at Horten in May 1945.
Could you help me to identifying some of them ?
Thank you in advance.

I think this is U 874 a typ IXd2.

Again U 874 and Maybe U 170 a typ IXc40. But that could be the typ XXI in foreground very dark. His emblem is overpainted. Maybe U 2513 ?

Best regards,
Lionfish

Thank you Derek for your answer.

The submarine on the foreground is U 3515. And the last are maybe U 2518 and U 2513 in the background.

Best regards,
