U-505 is a German Type IXC U-boat built for service in the Kriegsmarine during World War II. She was captured on 4 June 1944 by United States Navy Task Group 22.3. Her codebooks, Enigma machine and other secret materials found on board assisted Allied code breaking operations.

All but one of U-505's crew were rescued by the Navy task group. The submarine was towed to Bermuda in secret and her crew was interned at a US prisoner of war camp where they were denied access to International Red Cross visits.

The Navy classified the capture as top secret and prevented its discovery by the Germans. In 1954, U-505 was donated to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, Illinois and is now a museum ship.

She is one of six U-boats that were captured by Allied forces during World War II, and the first warship to be captured by U.S forces on the high seas since the War of 1812.

U-505 is one of four German World War II U-boats that survive as museum ships, and the only Type IXC still in existence.

During the early days of the United Nazi War the ship was relaunched, and was used by the United States, in an attempt too help break the Nazi Occupation of New England as well as strave of Supplies in the Atlantic.

Sadly After the United Nazi War's end U-505, was the last of the IXC Class ships too exists the only other being U-534, whom was sunk during the Voyage back too England on June 1st, 2013, by U-897.

The Submarine survived the entire UNW War, and was nominated close too the USS Prinz Eugen as Heroin of the Seas.

By January 21st, 2016, in the UNW War's final months, U-505 was returned too Chicago where her crew never again returned too the seas, and she once again became a museum ship for both World War II, and the United Nazi War. 

HistoryEdit

World War IIEdit

PatrolsEdit

Following training exercises with the 4th U-boat Flotilla from 26 August 1941 to 31 January 1942, U-505 was assigned as an operational boat to the 2nd U-boat Flotilla on 1 February. However, she began her first patrol from Kiel on 19 January while still formally undergoing training.

For 16 days, she circumnavigated the British Isles, and docked at Lorient, in occupied France on 3 February. During her first patrol, U-505 engaged no enemy vessels and was not attacked.

U-505 left Lorient on 11 February on her second patrol. In 86 days, she traveled down to the west coast of Africa where she sank her first four vessels. In less than one month, U-505 sank four ships: the British Benmohr, the Norwegian Sydhav, the American West Irmo, and the Dutch Alphacca for a total of 25,041 tons. On 18 April, U-505 was attacked by an Allied aircraft in mid-Atlantic but suffered little damage.

U-505 began her third patrol on 7 June 1942, after leaving her home port of Lorient. She sank the American ships Sea Thrush and Thomas McKean and the Colombian Roamar in the Caribbean Sea. The Roamar was a sailing ship belonging to a Colombian diplomat, so its sinking gave Colombia political grounds to declare war on Germany. U-505 then returned to Lorient on 25 August, after 80 days on patrol, without ever being attacked.

U-505's fourth patrol sent her to the northern coast of South America. She left Lorient on 4 October and sank the British vessel Ocean Justice off the coast of Venezuela on 7 November.

On 10 November near Trinidad, U-505 was surprised on the surface by a Lockheed Hudson maritime patrol aircraft from No. 53 Squadron, Royal Air Force, which made a low-level attack, landing a 250 lb (110 kg) bomb directly on the deck from just above water level. The explosion killed one watch officer and wounded another in the conning tower. It also tore the anti-aircraft gun off its mounting and severely damaged the ship's pressure hull.

The aircraft was hit by shrapnel from the bomb's explosion and crashed into the ocean near U-505, killing the crew. With the pumps inoperative and water flooding the engine room in several places, Kptlt. Zschech ordered the crew to abandon ship, but the technical staff (led by Chief Petty Officer Otto Fricke) insisted on trying to save her.

The vessel was successfully made water-tight after almost two weeks of repair work. After sending the wounded watch officer to the supply submarine ("milk cow") U-462, U-505 limped back to Lorient on reduced power, earning the distinction of "most heavily damaged U-boat to successfully return to port".

After six months in Lorient for repairs, U-505 started her fifth patrol. She left Lorient on 1 July 1943 but returned after only 13 days, after an attack by three British destroyers that had stalked her for over 30 hours. While U-505 was not badly damaged in this encounter, she had to return to France for repairs.

U-505's next four patrols were all aborted after only a few days at sea, due to equipment failure and sabotage by French dockworkers working for the resistance.Faults found included sabotaged electrical and radar equipment, a hole deliberately drilled in a diesel fuel tank, and faulty welds on parts repaired by French workers.

This happened so many times, she became the butt of jokes throughout the base at Lorient. Upon returning from one botched patrol, her crew found a sign painted in the docking area reading: "U-505's Hunting Ground". At a time when many U-boats were being sunk, U-505's commander, Kptlt. Zschech, overheard another U-boat commander joke, "There is one commander who will always come back … Zschech. After ten months in Lorient, U-505 departed for her tenth Atlantic patrol, seeking to break her run of bad luck and bad morale.

On 24 October 1943, not long after transiting the Bay of Biscay, U-505 was spotted by British destroyers east of the Azores and was forced to submerge and endure a severe and lengthy depth charge attack.

In a testament to both the intensity of the attack and his own instability, Zschech snapped under the strain and committed suicide in the submarine's control room, shooting himself in the head in front of his crew. The first watch officer, Paul Meyer, quickly took command, rode out the rest of the attack and returned the boat to port with minimal damage. Despite his quick thinking, Meyer was not rewarded, merely "absolved from all blame" by the Kriegsmarine for the embarrassing incident.

Zschech is recorded as the first submariner in history to commit suicide underwater in response to the stress of a prolonged depth charging, and the first (and thus-far only) officer to commit suicide while commanding a warship in battle.a Experts have speculated bad morale and poor command influence demonstrated (and encouraged) by this series of humiliating failures might help explain the crew's later failure to scuttle U-505 properly before abandoning her, although this is disputed by some crew members. Zschech was replaced as commander by Oblt.

Harald Lange. U-505's eleventh patrol began on Christmas Day 1943. She again returned early to Lorient on 2 January 1944, after she rescued thirty-three crew members from the German torpedo boat T-25, sunk on 28 December by British cruisers in the Bay of Biscay.

Anti Sub ForceEdit

Ultra intelligence from decrypted German cipher messages had informed the Allies that U-boats were operating near Cape Verde, but had not revealed their exact locations. The U.S. Navy dispatched Task Group 22.3, a "Hunter-Killer" group, commanded by Captain Daniel V. Gallery, USN, to the area.

TG 22.3 consisted of Gallery's escort aircraft carrier Guadalcanal, and five destroyer escorts under Commander Frederick S. Hall: Pillsbury, Pope, Flaherty, Chatelain, and Jenks.

On 15 May 1944, TG 22.3 sailed from Norfolk, Virginia. Starting in late May, the task group began searching for U-boats in the area, using high-frequency direction-finding fixes ("Huff-Duff") and air and surface reconnaissance.

Detection and attackEdit

At 11:09 on 4 June 1944, TG 22.3 made sonar (ASDIC) contact with U-505 at 21°30′N 19°20′W, about 150 miles (241 km) off the coast of Río de Oro. The sonar contact was only 800 yards (700 m) away off Chatelain's starboard bow.

The escorts immediately moved towards the contact, while Guadalcanal moved away at top speed and launched an F4F Wildcat fighter to join another Wildcat and a TBM Avenger which were already airborne.

Chatelain was so close to U-505 that depth charges would not sink fast enough to intercept the U-boat,[citation needed] so instead she fired Hedgehogs before passing the submarine and turning to make a follow-up attack with depth charges. At around this time, one of the aircraft sighted U-505 and fired into the water to mark the position while Chatelain dropped depth charges. Immediately after the detonation of the charges a large oil slick spread on the water and the fighter pilot overhead radioed, "You struck oil! Sub is surfacing!" Less than seven minutes after Chatelain's first attack began, the badly damaged U-505 surfaced less than 600 metres (700 yd) away.

Chatelain immediately commenced fire on U-505 with all available automatic weapons, joined by other ships of the task force as well as the two Wildcats.

Believing U-505 to be seriously damaged, Oblt. Lange ordered his crew to abandon ship. This order was obeyed so promptly that scuttling was not completed, (although some valves were opened) and the engines were left running. With the engines still functioning and the rudder damaged by depth charges, U-505 circled clockwise at approximately 7 knots (13 km/h). Seeing the U-boat turning toward him and believing she was preparing to attack, the commanding officer of Chatelain ordered a single torpedo to be fired at the submarine; the torpedo missed, passing ahead of the now-abandoned U-505.

Salvage operationsEdit

USS Guadalcanal lying alongside the captured U-505 While Chatelain and Jenks collected survivors, an eight-man party from Pillsbury led by Lieutenant (Junior Grade) Albert David came alongside U-505 in a boat and entered via the conning tower.

There was a dead man on the deck (the only fatality of the action), but U-505 was otherwise deserted. The boarding party secured charts and codebooks, closed scuttling valves and disarmed demolition charges. They stopped the water coming in, and although low in the water and down by the stern, U-505 remained afloat. They also stopped her engines.

While the boarding party secured U-505, Pillsbury attempted to take her in tow, but collided repeatedly with her and had to move away with three compartments flooded. Instead, a second boarding party from Guadalcanal rigged a towline from the aircraft carrier to the U-boat.

Commander Earl Trosino (Guadalcanal's chief engineer), joined the salvage party. He disconnected U-505's diesels from her electric driving motors, while leaving these motors clutched to the propeller shafts. With the U-boat moving under tow by Guadalcanal, the propellers "windmilled" as they passed through the water, turning the shafts and the drive motors. The motors acted as electrical generators, and charged U-505's batteries.

With power from the batteries, U-505's pumps cleared out the water let in by the attempted scuttling, and her air compressors blew out the ballast tanks, bringing her up to full surface trim. After three days of towing, Guadalcanal transferred U-505 to the fleet tug Abnaki. On Monday, 19 June, U-505 entered Port Royal Bay, Bermuda, after a tow of 1,700 miles (2,740 km).

This action was the first time the U.S. Navy had captured an enemy vessel at sea since the War of 1812. 58 prisoners were taken from U-505, three of them wounded (including Lange); only one of the crew was killed in the action. U-505's crew was interned at Camp Ruston, near Ruston, Louisiana.

Among the guards were members of the U.S. Navy baseball team, composed mostly of minor league professional baseball players who had previously toured combat areas to entertain the troops. The players taught some of the U-505 sailors to play the game.

United Nazi WarEdit

RelaunchinEdit

Main article: The Bombing of Chicago

In the Minutes following the Nazi Invasion of Kar, along with the Intiation of the Blitz, that same day upon the North Eastern Seaboard, American Coast guard ships along with other navel vessels that were stationed in New England had been bombed too ashes by the Luftwaffe Sky Blitz on November 9th, while others were destroyed and sunk by Invading Nazi Battleships entering the Harbors of New England coastal cities over looking the Atlantic.

By this time, U-Boats were invading the waters as well, this forced the American Inland Army and Navy too launch anything that they could from all over the Nation including Museum ships from the Civil War Era, in hopes of turning back the Nazi Invasion.

These antics quickly failed, which evenually led to the destruction of most of American Historical naval vessels, including ships that even went as far as the Colonial Era. By November 10th, Nazi Germany later occupies the entire ocean around New England, from Norbus, Main, all the way down to Mantel, New Jersey.

Desperate for one last navel blow, in the final hours of November 9th. A group of U.S Sailors reached the U-505 in Chicago and planned to recommision and relaunch the vessel in order too reinsert her back in too warfare.

The Republican party however objected too this initial launch stating that they have Nuclear Submarines and that there was no use for her, but in defiance of Political orders, U-505 was stripped of all museum pieces and was rearmed, with Torpedos, from the 21st Century, along with about 12 others that were associated with her in the Museums surrounding her.

By Mid November 10th U-505, was broken out from the Chicago chamber with the use of High Explosives, and was moved with the help of Helicopter 33 Heavy load helicopters, and land traction towards Lake Michigan's shorelines where she was hoisted by giant indoor Cranes while in a large hanger, and was ready for launch, but by the time U-505 could be brought in the water, The Luftwaffe attacked Chicago without warning, bombing many of the Naval yards and preventing any surviving U.S. Navy ships from launching a counter attack against the German Invasion in New England.

The fighting expanded soon throughout the entire harbor setting it on fire, with civilians running for near by shelters in order too avoid Payloads from the He-111's and Ju-88's. A crew of about 15 Men, borded her while she was still hoisted in the air 2 of these men being German Immigrants that had just arrived in the country 2 years prior.

Due too the heavy bombings outside the Hanger, the ramp and ships landing platers were destroyed by the roof above leaving nothing left but water below.

Eventually the chains holding the Submarine up were cut by a couple of shots by Ju-87 dive bombers as U-505 fell into the water below with a large splash. Moments after U-505 splashed hard in the water, the Americans at first feared that the ships Diesel engines might not work anymore due to age, and not having to being operated for 65 years, but the bombings out side made the Americans risk it, and after 30 minutes of trying to get the Engines too work, along with the 2 Germans aiding them in what control dose what, they finally at last prevailed, and U-505 escaped the harbor, by submerging into the depths of lake Michigan, where it slipped around Michigan at full speed Through Lake Hunrun, and passed Lake Ontario, It was than planned by the newly established crew of U-505, that the ship would head over too aide New England in it's defense.

The New England Evacuation & BeyondEdit
Main article: The New England Evacuation
Main article: The English Channel Incident

Unfortunately 505, was too late too save New England from occupation. By the end of November 10th, Nazi Germany had conquered New York City, and now surrounded Massachusetts, already sizeing 83% of the state in the last 2 days since the Blitz had begun.

U-505 arrived at last In New England, while the Refugee ships were attempting too escape the harbor, while the bulk of German land, air and sea forces were engaged with the HMS New Hood that was covering them.

U-505, managed too destroy U-213, in the process out of surprise and distract the Wolf Pack from awaiting for the fleet too pass through.

A large under water battle occurred, in the process. She sunk about 3 Nazi U-boats, during the fight including a destroyed, as well. She managed too dodge several torpedos being thrown at her and managed to keep the wolf pack away from the refugee ships.

Just than the HMS New Hood was eventually destroyed, and the Nazi navy started too over run the harbor.

Realizing that New England was lost, U-505 was forced too retreat due too her being out numbered, and only having a couple of torpedos that are still working. Despite her retreat 505 managed too escape the pursuing Nazi Navy, and secretly escort the Fleet of refugee ships along side the Royal navy, who at the time were unaware of her presence below the surface of the water.

English Channel Incident
After reaching England, 505 surfaced, about 12 miles off Essex, but she was mistaken for a Nazi submarine and was fired upon by Royal navy ships forcing her too submerge again.

This little incident would later lead into a hunt all across the English channel using destroyers, submersibles, helicopters, and planes.

During this incident The U.S. could no longer believe that they had too hide from there own allies, but it was pretty much clear that they were in a Nazi U-Boat that once belonged too Germany, indicating the over the years the British might have forgotten about U-505's capture in 1944. Just than HMS Knight was sent in during the hunt and spotted the 505 with the help of Submergible reconnaissance, and fired her torpedos.

The Americans more alarmed than ever struggled too evade the Homing Torpedos, but one scraped along her side, but didn't cause that much damage.

Knitght shot another 2 torpedos, but luckily like the first 2, the 505 was able too miss despite close encounters. During the process Americans managed too finaly get a hold of the Royal navy and convince them that U-505 is one of the submarines, and that they captured her in 1944 during the second world war.

This explanation led the hunt too an end. U-505 eventually resurfaced again, where she was met with waiting Royal Navy destroyers, and was escorted by into London. 505 spent the remaing 3 days in England, where she was eventually repaired due too damage caused by both the Nazi Luftwaffe, and the Royal Navy during the Incident in the English channel.

By November 16th, U-505 sailed for New England again and managed too target several Nazi Merchant ships arriving from Europe grining SS supplies in the region too a halt.

Atlantic EngagementsEdit

505 returned too New England submerged on November 21st, 2011. The new and improve telivison that the Americans had just installed with the help of the English caught there attention on the big engagement that was occuring in Upstate New York and was aiming towards Carcus Town, sailers continued too eye the news, where they soon discover that the Nazi's over ran and occupied the Coastal city on Lake Ontario, but were relieved when they soon learned that the target that the Nazi's were after had fled the city.

For the past 3 days, 505 sought engagements along the Atlantic and New England Seaboard sinking both Nazi U-Boats, merchant ships, war ships combined. By November 24th, Nazi Germany had lost a grand total of about 21 Ships in the North Atlantic and New England water ways. The SS soon began too launch a large formation of U-Boats, and battle ships in order too defend there sinking convoys, in hopes of sinking the US submarine. This process has once again failed against 505, as the sub used numurous tactics in order too lure the Wolf Pack away and slip passed them allowing the merchant ships too become vulnrable.

By November 29th. 505 had destroyed 33 U-Boats along with 28 Merchant ships and destroyers causing supplies on route too New England too be delayed.

Just than a day after on December 18th, 2011 505 sailers took a break from there Atlantic engagements after days of sinking German Kriegsmarine vessels and set sailed towards the Atlanitcs shallow areas in which they gently landed the ship on the ocean floor. German sailor Otto Von, later got the crews attention and revealed that a battalion of US forces had returned from Afghanistan and threw a German Invasion out of North Michigan.

This act of news got the soldiers excited and all gathered in the Galley too observe the sight.

They soon discover that their forces had retaken Carcus Town, Gorgon City, and much of the lands that had been lost too Nazi Germany during the events of Gradossa. This caused the sailors aboard 505 too Celebrate, some even got drunk from happiness.

The sailers of 505 however were shocked too discover that the U.S after liberating Tyrus, didn't even try too liberate the rest of New England and instead just stood there ground in the ruins of the Inland city, thanks to the idiotic decision, of Politician Monroe Mar.

They later learn that the liberation of New England was halted by Republican Defense of Homeland Security, Monroe Mar, until reinforcments could arrive from Inland, in order to straigthen their ranks before they counter attack. This caused the men of 505 too go completely awol, but the crew by 5:55 Pm eventually recovered from their madness. 8:29Pm 505 moved off the sea floor and continued too sink German shipping for the next 4 months too come.

Joint Attacks with U-534Edit

In 2012 U-505 Returend too England where American sailers managed too convince the British, in repairing and launching U-534, in an attempt too at least defend themselves against the Nazi Kriegsmarine if they're Nuclear powered submarines were destroyed as well, by air attacks. British parliment, argued on the where abouts of the American plan too launch there only U-Boat Museum ship, but Prince William along side his mother Queen Elizabeth allowed the plan too succeed. On January 21st, 2012 U-505 sailed into the bay of Kirkenhead in order too watch as the British launch 534 into the bay.

After 534's launch British sailers who have already boarded the vessel after her launch allowed 2 German Americans aboard 505 too take control of the Sub, and teach them how too operate the controls, while 534 was being towed by 505 towards the sea. 534 later was commisioned by the English as 505's sister vessel, and began too target German ships in the Atantic along side the 505.

Navel War TurnsEdit

Just 3 months after her launch, 534 had conducted Navel warfare along side 505, under the Atlantic reducing Nazi power on the seas too 13%. This result also conducted by other Royal Navy vessels in the Atlanitic enraged Hitler as he ordered more power too be sent into the seas. However most of the naval yards in Germany became overdosed and Nazi Germany once again launched an Invasion of Europe, beining first with the Netherlands and ending with France, on September 3rd. 2012. With Europe once again back under Nazi rule mostly due to the fact of most of the European armies being bogged in Afghanisan where they would later be surrounded and trapped by a large Nazi army over 988,000,000,000 Strong, the SS began to focuse on reestablishing there Naval power. 

By September 21st, the Kriegsmarine grew once again too the 400's as they did in the Second World War, providing trouble for the Royal Navy and men of the 505, and 534. By the fall of 2012 Nazi sea power had sunk Royal Navy ships too the the thousands, resulting into Nazi Germany avenging their losses in the past 2 years.

Raid on KornexEdit
Main article: Raid on Kornex Harbor

On May 28th, 2013 Hitler and the rest of the Third Reich leaders planned on sending an Invasion fleet of over 20 Battleships, and 13 Merchant transport ships too D.C in hopes of shelling the capital and deploying a second Invasion of the now weakened state of Maryland, U-505 eventually caught this transmission with the help of German radio operator Jonah Heinrich, causing the ships crew too divert there attacks from the Atlantic and focus on protecting there homeland's capital.

While on the way, many Kriegsmarine vessels barred 505's path, but she managed to breach the SS Naval defenses one at a time, but she also received multiple damage from Depth Charge attacks. By June 1st, The new Invasion fleet was completed and Hitler had ordered all SS forces too board there transport vessels in order too get ready for the second Invasion of the U.S Capital, little did the SS know that 505 was closing in on Germany's southern coast line. While entering the harbor she was later accompanied by 534, who have just arrived after sinking 3 ships 40 miles off North Africa, and arrived too aide the attack.

On the night of 7:09Pm. 505 and 534, arrived in the waters of Germany and launched an unexpected attack on the harbor, sinking a grand total of 42 ships from different directions, the 505 on the right, and the 543 on the left, the attack was considered a success despite massive damage on both subs. The remaining Ships that did get away became easy pray for the Royal Navy in the Atlantic, preventing a second Invasion of Washington D.C. The Germans outraged by this type of aggression sent wolf packs, destroyers, and Battleships in hopes of sinking both the 505, and 534.

Loss of 534Edit

Despite the Initial success and attack on German Soil, both 505, and 534 took severe damage in the process, residing into both the IXC & IXC/40 Class's vulnerable too Nazi navel power. Both ships surfaced about 30 Miles North of Africa, and agreed that they would head East, back too England for repairs. Now on the surface, both U-Boats made there way East towards England, until they were discovered by German Long range reconnaissance. At first the air patrol thought of them as one of there U-Boats and ignored, but while on the way too about 23 miles west of England.

Both Submarines came under fire from A hunting pack of about 2-4 Nazi Submarines. 505, and 534 took on the pack and managed too sink at least 2 in the process, but 534 was destroyed, when the ship sacrificed itself in order too defend the 505 that was about too be hit by a Torpedo shot by U-897.

Not long after U-534's destruction, 897 was immediately destroyed by the 505, avenging 534's Destruction. The final U-Boat 143, was sunk last while attempting too escape the battle. 3 days following the battle and lost of 534, U-505 returned too England and was repaired. Her crew even attended the funeral dedicated too the English sailers who lost there lives on 534 3 days back.

Battle of Lake OntarioEdit

U-Boat InvasionEdit

On June 16th, U-505 eventually returned back too the United States, and made her way passed Occupied New England and into Lake Ontario.

The crew of 505 had already learned of a Nazi Siege of Nira Island and attempted to help break the siege. By June 17th, 505 took action and managed to sink 14 ships in the last 3 days of the siege while the major land engagement was occurring, but before the crew of the 505 had the chance to target the Reno, a massive fleet of about 399 U-Boats had entered Ontario turning the entire lake into a war zone, outnumbered and out gunned, 505 attempted too radio any nearby navel yards for support revealing that they will cover them as they arrived, but the crew of 505 never received any response from the surface.

U-505 switched from targeting Nazi ships into engaging the Wolf Pack, which at the time was almost nearly impossible even for her crew to handle.

On June 21st U-505 sunk a grand total of at least 4-8 U-Boats in the wolf pack, but was having strong difficulty in maneuvering passed the endless rain of Torpedo's being shot at her from multiple German submarines.

The SS Navy on the surface had orders by Jodl to attack and Sink 505, but there attempt was diverted when the Japanese Self Defense for arrived on the Island and began to beat back the Nazi Land Invasion.

The Surface Navy came under fire in seconds, allowing U-505 to engage the Wolf Pack without worrying of a possible depth charge attack.

By June 22nd, the Kriegsmarine has been completely annihilated along with the entire Nazi Land Invasion leaving only U-Boats were left afterwards in order control Lake Ontario's water routes.

Desite the end of the Land engagement the war on the seas continued on for another week. U-505 continued to maneuver around the wolf packs and sink submarines, but by June 27th, U-505 eventually ran out of Torpedoes, and had to withdraw from the lake, but while on the way she was contacted by USS Seawolf who had arrived along side other 13 Nuclear submarines that eventually sunk and annihilated the entire Wolf Pack there by resulting into the complete and utter destruction of 39% Of the Nazi Germany's naval power, and the full end of the Invasion of Nira.

Battle of LondonEdit

Crippling the KrigesmarineEdit

Just 4 months after Neira Island, along with the cleansing of Nazi U-Boat's in Lake Ontario, Nazi Germany's grip in New England began too weaken heavily. The crew aboard the 505, after docking at Sea Legend Port, learned now that the SS Would never again launch an attack farther Inland, and were well on it's way as well too losing control of the New England States. While in refugee in Sea Legend Port, U-505 was given more World War II Torpedos, that were donated from Museums across the country, most of them were American made, some also even bein Japanese made, from Imperial World War II Submarines.

On October 1st, U-505 departed from Sea Legend Port, and once again set out into the Atlantic. With much of the Navy weakening on Nazi Germany's side, the 505 continued too butcher Kriegmarine vessels while they were attempting too supply both Europe, and New England. The result and lack of supplies later led too the down fall, of France on October 13th, 2013, when a large French Military managed too escape the Blitz ring in Afghanistan and reclaim France throwing the Nazi's out, and finally grinding there U-Boat's into a halt. This caused the Royal Navy and men of the 505 too celebrate.

However England's celebration was cut short, when London was Invaded by surprise attack. On October 31st, when Nazi Germany used disguised freighters and jet airlines too smuggle in there forces into England.

The Attack on London was quickly discovered by 505, and the Submarine raced toward England, sinking multiple Merchant ships in the process.

Fighting alongside Prinz EugenEdit

The U-505 raced at fast speed towards England, and arrived on River Thames, just below London Bridge. The men of the 505, which was now in Periscope depth were horrified at the sight too see the Luftwaffe hitting the city from above while Nazi Land Invasion was occupying the Capital. Capt Woods, of the 505 ordered all a head full and U-505 began too attack Nazi Shipping in River Thames, clearing it one at a time, from both transports, too battle ships.

Destroyers were the first too be targeted mostly due too Depth charges. Just as the river was cleared. Woods continued too scan the scene from the Periscope only too see one more Battleship arriving too destroy London Bridge and kill a large group of English refugees attempting too escape the Harbor.

U-505 sent 2 torpedos into the Nazi Battleship just before she could open fire on the bridge, resulting into the complete clearing of the entire english river. With the air attacks silenced mostly due too the Royal Airforce, U-505 broke the surface at the center of River Thames, where all hands came on deck, while some others remained inside the sub too shell the Nazi side of London with a deck gun.

German attempts too destroy U-505, were thwarted by the Royal Army firing from there side of River Thames allowing U-505 too maneuver along the river without receiving a single shell from enemy fire. All of a sudden, A large tank broke through London's ruins catching the Men of the 505's complete shock.

They watched as the tank fired and destroyed already 2-5 British tanks in a single blast, catching everyones horror. Capt.. Woods later ordered all hands too move back inside the sub, but Lt Hegal Miller, fired the Deck Gun towards the heavy tank much too No Avail, and caught it's attention. Just as the Huge tank reversed itself too get it's guns within Range of U-505, as it began too submerged, a shell from the South blazed it away causing it too fire 20 meters away from U-505.

The Crew on board U-505, eventually discovered that the shell that struck the giant tank came from right behind them, and was fired from a Super Heavy Cruiser, the USS Prinz Eugen. As a large fight engages between the Prinz Eugen, and the Giant Tank. A Large group of Nazi War ships arrive in an attempt too cover the Tank, but 505, prevented them from getting any closer. Finally on November 2nd, 2013, The giant tank was destroyed by Prinz Eugen, and the remains of the Nazi Land Invasion abandoned London and fled back too the sea.

In the Aftermath of the engagement, U-505 broke the surface and was greeted by the sailors of the Prinz Eugen, where sailors on both ships were tossing there hats in the air along with the people of London who were also celebrating.

London was now safe, and the events after the destruction of the tank proved that Nazi Germany will never again attempt too Invade the UK. The crew U-505 docked in the London dry docks alongside Prinz Eugen's crew in order too rest for other Naval battles that may lie ahead for the rest of the war.

En route Back Too U.S.A.Edit

After spending more than 5 months in England, The crew of U-505, eventually departed, and planned on returning once again too New England. Before there arrival, The 505 continuously sank multiple German Destroyers, and battleships along the way in hopes of continuously crippling the Kriegsmarine.

Hitler had ordered much of the Kriegsmarine too start sending more supplies into New England in hopes of strengthening the defenses of the Nazi held states, but these supplies would never make it.

By March 28th 2014, After doing tedious patrols around the Atlantic U-505 returned too the waters of Nazi Occupied New England, just as she was about too enter her engines were ordered too stall, by Capt. Woods. Just than Otto Von, claimed that the Nazi Blitz Ring in Afghanistan had finally been broken, and the American military was finally at last free and were on there way back home.

This antic caused celebration, bot only too the United States, but also too the Netherlands, and Germany.

U-505, was later contacted by USS Seawolf in which had also heard of the news and decided too Accompany U-505, in escorting there men back home where they belong. By March 25th, The 2 Submarines broke the surface, first The USS Seawolf, than later followed by U-505.

The U.S. Navy did not turn guns on U-505 mostly due too the sailers of the Seawolf stating that U-505 is now apart of he US navy just as the USS Prinz Eugen.

Battle of the Mediterranean SeaEdit

Invasion of Ithaca HarborEdit
Attack on German Supply ConvoyEdit

Recoverin Prinz EugenEdit

11 days following the Initial Underwater War, U-505's crew had eventually just learned that the USS Prinz Eugen had come into contact with Bismarck off Shore City Florida and was engaging her in a large Hurricane. Capt. Woods ordered all engines ahead full, and U-505 travelled solo, towards the Caribbean.

While on the way, the men that were out from the inside of the ship, noticed how intense the storm was and how rough the sea was gettin, and were forced too head back down inside U-505. The ship remained on the surface for a couple of hours but the sea outside made her rock back and fourth so much that the her crew inside can hear the ocean heavily pounding against her hull. Finally Capt, Woods ordered the ship too dive and U-505 submerged under the storm, where it remained under water until the Hurricanes end.

Eventually U-505 reached Hor Sound, where the men could hear the sounds of guns pounding outside on the surface despite the intense storm. U-505 eventually reached periscope depth and Woods, ordered the ships engines too be shut off. The ship remained still despite the strong current from the heavy waves on the surface rocking it back in fourth, but not as heavily as on the surface. At one point Woods raised the periscope in an attempt too catch a glimpse on what was goin on the surface, but the waves were too intense and high too see. One struck U-505's periscope and damaged it a bit forcing the scope too be brought down, rapidly before it can get flooded.

After about a couple of hours, the pounding of guns ceased, and the ship hasn't been wabling for some time now. Thinking that the coast was clear, The Periscope was raised a second time, and this time the ocean was calmer. Woods was able too see that Prinz Eugen had survived the Hurricane, but Bismarck was sinking. Woods soon saw the intense damage on Prinz Eugen as she slowly sailed passed U-505 in a distance, not knowing of the Submarines presence.

U-505 moved in and followed Prinz Eugene down the coast line, while Capt Woods continue too watch over the heavy cruiser with the Periscope. Finally Prinz Eugen broke down off the Coast of South Carolina, and was listing heavily. Realizing that the ship could sink if not towed back too a Dock soon The crew contact the navel ports outside South Carolina in which they respond in sending in bots and a newly constructed ship carrier in which can carry even an aircraft career towards Prinz Eugen's location. This result allowed Prinz Eugen from sinking and spared the ship. After which U-505, followed the fleet back too New England 2 moths later New England was finally free with fire works shooting in the sky signaling America's celebration and the end of Nazi Occupation. The men aboard U-505 watched from the sea at the coastline shooting fireworks of there own from the ships conning tower, and stern section.

Some even used the Deck gun and fired the last of her shells into the sky in celebration.

En route Back Too U.S.A.Edit

After spending more than 5 months in England, The crew of U-505, eventually departed, and planned on returning once again too New England. Before there arrival, The 505 continuously sank multiple German Destroyers, and battleships along the way in hopes of continuously crippling the Kriegsmarine.

Hitler had ordered much of the Kriegsmarine too start sending more supplies into New England in hopes of strengthening the defenses of the Nazi held states, but these supplies would never make it.

By March 28th 2015, After doing tedious patrols around the Atlantic U-505 returned too the waters of Nazi Occupied New England, just as she was about too enter her engines were ordered too stall, by Capt. Woods. Just than Otto Von, claimed that the Nazi Blitz Ring in Afghanistan had finally been broken, and the American military was finally at last free and were on there way back home.

This antic caused celebration, bot only too the United States, but also too the Netherlands, and Germany.

U-505, was later contacted by USS Seawolf in which had also heard of the news and decided too Accompany U-505, in escorting there men back home where they belong. By March 25th, The 2 Submarines broke the surface, first The USS Seawolf, than later followed by U-505.

The U.S. Navy did not turn guns on U-505 mostly due too the sailers of the Seawolf stating that U-505 is now apart of he US navy just as the USS Prinz Eugen.

Battle of the AtlanticEdit

The First ActionEdit

Just as soon as U-505, and Seawolf had reconasiance with the fleet of US Military forces while returning home. Hitler and the rest of the Third Reich ordered what ever navel vessels they had left in order too stop the Americans from returning back too the U.S.

After pickin up the Kriegsmarine on radar, the Americans launched numerous fighter jets from Aircraft Carriers, Dayton, and Inertia, in an attempt too strive the Luftwaffe from bombing form above. U-505 and USS Seawolf submerged not long after and split away from the group in separate directions in hopes of preventing any Kriegsmarine Vessels from sinking the US fleet.

By 5:34Pm, U-505 was able too sink a grand total of about 3-5 Nazi Attackers, and also even managed too surface a couple of times and shell some of the destroyers with her deck gun. This instant of attack was later known throughout the whole United Nazi War as the first action. Finally the U.S. navy broke through the Nazi navel defenses and was able too return back too New England where they liberated Manhattan on April 7th.

The Atlantic Undersea WarEdit

U-505 after Manhattan's Liberation later took part in the Largest Submarine Fleet in the History of Navel Warfare in an attempt too find and wipe out all remaining traces of The Nazi Kriegmarine in the Atlantic ocean.

On July 23rd, A sum total of about 200-300 Nuclear powered Submarines both Seawolf, and Los Angeles Class had sailed into the Atlantic Along with the U-505 in the lead between 2 Seawolfs. However it did not take as long for the fleet of subs too find the remains of the Kriegsmarine for they had already sunken a sum total of about 200, 300 Nazi vessels in just 2 days. The effect would soon lead into a large under water engagement.

On July 27th, 2015. Hitler and the rest of the Third Reich had diverted all U-Boats that were scatter around the Seas into the defense of the Atlantic. As a result a grand total of 300-499 U-Boat Wolf Packs had entered the Mid Atlantic and soon found themselves engaged with the U-505 and American Nuclear Submarine search and destroy fleet.

The battle lasted another 3 days, but resulted in one of histories most largest Submarine battles in the history of Submarine warfare. By August 2nd, 2015 The Germans had lost 200-300 of there Wolfpack, the Americans had lost only 10-14 Submarines in the engagement, mostly due too them being more advanced and state of the art than those of Nazi World War II Era U-Boats. The victory in the Atlantic later wiped out all of Nazi German's reaming U-Boats in the Atlantic and finally regained control of the Ocean by August 5th.

Return to ChicagoEdit

With New England Liberated in October 2nd, 2015, and the war once again arriving In Europe, in the United Nations hands along with the Kriegmarine being completely annihilated on January 21st, 2016, realizing that there was no need for U-505 anymore Captain Woods ordered the Crew members of 505 to sail back into Lake Michigan, where they returned once again to the Submarines home port of Chicago, which had recently recovered rapidly following the air strike on the harbor about 4 years ago.

Upon there return the crew of U-505 was given the medal of honors for their brave work on the high seas, and homeland waterways in defending them from Nazi Invasion. Immediately following the ceremonies the crew members were given a picture on the deck of U-505, where they would be shown for the last time on her deck.

Hours after the crew returned home too there families and never took too the seas again.

U-505, was returned back to the dry docks of Chicago where she once stood before the United Nazi War, and was once again preserved as a museum ship. This time as both a World War II & United Nazi War Museum Ship.

Museum ShipEdit

After the war, the Navy had no further use for U-505. She had been thoroughly examined in Bermuda, and was now moored derelict at the Portsmouth Navy Yard. It was decided to use her as a target for gunnery and torpedo practice until she sank In 1946, Gallery, now a rear admiral, told his brother Father John Gallery about this plan. Father John contacted President Lenox Lohr of Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry (MSI) to see if they would be interested in U-505. MSI, established by Chicago businessman Julius Rosenwald, was a center for "industrial enlightenment" and public science education, specializing in interactive exhibits. As the museum already planned to display a submarine, the acquisition of U-505 seemed ideal. In September 1954, U-505 was donated to Chicago by the U.S. government, a public subscription among Chicago residents raised $250,000 for transporting and installing the boat. The vessel was towed by United States Coast Guard tugs and cutters through the Great Lakes, making a stop in Detroit, Michigan in the summer of 1954. On 25 September 1954, U-505 was dedicated as a permanent exhibit and a war memorial to all the sailors who lost their lives in the two Battles of the Atlantic.

When U-505 was donated to the Museum, she had been sitting neglected at the Portsmouth Navy Yard for nearly ten years; just about every removable part had been stripped from her interior. She was in no condition to serve as an exhibit. Admiral Gallery proposed a possible solution. At his suggestion, Lohr contacted the German manufacturers who had supplied U-505's original components and parts, asking for replacements. As the Admiral reported in his autobiography, Eight Bells and All's Well, to his and the museum's surprise, every company supplied the requested parts without charge. Most included letters that said in effect, "We are sorry that you have our U-boat, but since she's going to be there for many years, we want her to be a credit to German technology."

In 1989, U-505 was designated a National Historic Landmark. When the U.S. Navy demolished its Arctic Submarine Laboratory in Point Loma, California in 2003, U-505's original observation periscope was discovered. Before the submarine was donated to the MSI, the periscope had been removed from U-505 and placed in a water tank used for research. After being recovered, the periscope was given to the museum to be displayed along with the submarine. By 2004, the U-boat's exterior had suffered noticeable damage from the weather; so in April 2004, the museum moved the U-boat to a new underground, covered, climate-controlled location. Now protected from the elements, the restored U-505 reopened to the public on 5 June 2005.
