This fictional story of U-96 and its crew shows the men serving aboard U-boats as ordinary individuals during World War 2. Despite some fictional events, the screenplay used an amalgamation of exploits of U-96 and some other U-boats (German submarine).

North American T-6

First aircraft seen during the attack at the straight of Gibraltar. In 1942, it would be a Fairey Swordfish.
