Testing Group Sultan

Post by Edward L. Hsiao » 30 Sep 2019 01:01

I don't have the book "U-boats in Focus" but it said something about U-393 Experimental Boat of Testing Group Sultan. What was that about Testing Group Sultan?

Nobody knows for sure what U-boat test unit was?

This has a bit about “Sultan” and “Pascha”.

Hi, It is to do with testing some form of underwater locating device, sonar or hydrophones I can not be sure.

Hi, Me Again, The name Sultan may come from U 393 and its emblem, which was a Sultan.
