Colombia received two German submarines 206A


Both boats (U-23 and U-24) served earlier in the Bundesmarin and were decommissioned. fleet spring 2011

The contract for their sale was concluded in 2012. The contract value was about $ 140 million. This cost included two more decommissioned submarines U-16 and U-18 (for spare parts), as well as 533-mm torpedoes DM2A4.

Diesel engines U-23 and U-24 were officially handed over to the customer in the same year, but remained in German Kiel for overhaul, which was carried out by ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems.

In November, 2015 sent both repaired submarines to Colombia on a BBC Sapphire transport vessel. They arrived in Cartagena on December 1.

Now the submarines are called Indomable ("Invincible") and Intrepido ("Fearless").

According to the newspaper, Colombia plans to use them, “including to intercept transport submarines and semi-submarines that are used by drug cartels to transport drugs in the Gulf of Urab.”

It is noted that the arrived submarines "will replace two ultra-small Italian-built 1970-s submarines of the SX-506 project, bearing the same name and written off several years ago."

        By the way, drug cartels have very interesting specimens of homemade products, and our engineers were spotted there.

          There is a docfilm: "drug submarines" from 0.12
          and you need to send spies to Colombia-it’s like the technology is not old. And they sold it, presented it easily, because the Bundes already have new boats from VNEU.

    In the same place, the situation is aggravated by the fact that the submarine itself (more often "diving boats" of course) the local mafia can already master, but the means of detection are more difficult than "they saw a patrolman in the periscope - we press the slippers from it"

    Why Colombia needs submarines !? , especially the German outdated !?, so that the CIA and the State Department do not appear in the transportation and sale of drugs. Business as usual for the distraught "exceptional" ....

    Drags to carry?

    Previously, drug traffickers sailed in insufficiently comfortable conditions.

    And now German quality! - climate control, rain sensor laughing , heated seats, stereo system, parking sensors, adaptive headlights, monitors in the headrests ... Large luggage compartment!

    Das boot.

    Anything better than they were.

      Why is there an inscription on the picture: "The first submarin"? After all, everyone knows that the first submarine was invented by dill? Anglo-Saxons are not afraid that they will be sued for copyright infringement? laughing

    that’s because the topic just appeared and I immediately thought that these boats are German only suitable for drug trafficking, went into the topic and then there is unanimity on this subject and I’m not the first to think so, in general the Colombian government can now not hang noodles, that's all everyone knows people can't be fooled

    Both boats (U-23 and U-24) served earlier in the Bundesmarine and were withdrawn from the fleet in the spring of 2011.
    These boats may not be suitable for service in the Bundesmarin, but cocaine can be transported to America good drinks

    The Germans can no longer afford to see maintenance and repair of these chlamydia. So we decided to shake off while still on the go. They will endure a year or two, if you don't dive very deeply. The Germans have already earned on the fact that there is no need to spend money on disposal. Well done! Drug trafficking is unlikely to work. For example, they will swim to the coast full of coke, lie down in silence, waiting for the Coast Guard to calm down and go to sleep. And only those eyes will close, to take a nap, as at all frequencies and acoustically "Oh, Mayne Liebert Augustine, Augustine!" ... They will not let the NATO allies fall asleep!

    You are all fuckers, you know, but few who know that Cubans in 1943 city sunk U-176 (oceanic, type IX-C) with depth charges from a patrol boat. It - single the victory of the Cuban Navy in the history of their existence. Here is such an irony ...

    True, in Washington, it seems, "coke" is not popular, they use some kind of thermonuclear synthetics there, judging by the statements ... what

    The purchase will pay off for Colombians for 1 flight with coke to the USA (and you can only wish good luck).
