“Biber” was probably the most notorious “poket size” submarine implemented by the Kriegsmarine, German’s 3rd Reich marine through the end of Second World War. The growth regarding the Biber had been excessively quick. The design started in February 1944 and first examples were set to sea only half a year later. With only 9 meters length, it had been capable of a 240 kilometres range. Capable reach a merged maximum rate of 6,5 knots and 5,3 knots submerged. The Biber has been designed with two 530mm torpedoes mounted externally or with two mines. The team consisted of only one member. The deployment associated with Biber, in the Kriegsmarine strategy, had been simple: provide an efficient defence regarding the cost shore as protection to a potential, further more likely, Allied intrusion. Anyhow, the Biber ended up being never a critical threat for the Allied. Both due to it is technical and design defects and also for the crew trained, for war needs, excessively fast and without necessary development. Nether the less, from 1944 till the finish associated with Second World War, the Kriegsmarine took distribution and placed in operation more then 300 Bibers.
