The Type 225 was designed to usher in a new age of submarine warfare, with the most advanced new weapons, propulsion, navigation and detection systems.
U-Boats such as the Type 225 hunt in packs, as per traditional tactics, often over long distances. Often they will hunt alone along a coastline, around a gulf, or even up a river.
In wartime, U-Boats are used not only to hunt enemy commerce, but of course, to sink enemy warships. The Type 225 is most adept at this largely due to its rocket-propelled super-cavitating torpedoes, who, using super-cavitation, in which a large bubble of water forms around the torpedo thus streamlining it, can travel miles upon miles at very high speeds and cut a ship the size of a supercarrier in half. The Type 225 can also fire missiles from its torpedo tubes, which can provide versatility among weapons.
In peacetime or wartime, U-Boats often also escort friendly convoys or fleets, and can spot the enemy many miles ahead and eliminate them before they become a threat.
The silent hunter stalks its prey...
Aye, for crying out loud! It's not supposed to be SQUARE! It's supposed to be thin, slender, shaped like a knife blade, made to cut through the water, just like a... knife. I would imagine a knife to go a lot faster through water than anything cigar-shaped would. Especially a cigar. The reason why it looks so boxy is that it's LEGO, how do you make a knife-shaped hull out of blocks??? Although sometime I might take the hull of my newest destroyer and use it as a U-boat hull...
I like it

Although I struggle to see how a square sub has less drag that a cigar-shaped one, This is a cute and effective little build. ~T
