Thursday, March 28, 2013
(Statoil)OSLO, NORWAY—A German submarine has been found off the coast of Norway by Statoil, a Norwegian oil company. The “U-486” broke in two when it was torpedoed in April 1945 by a British submarine. It sank in 820 feet of water with 48 people on board. There were no survivors. “The submarine had a special coating on the hull. It was a synthetic rubber coating designed to significantly reduce its radar signal,” said Arild Maroey Hansen of the Bergen Maritime Museum.
