Nice to see you back, and with a blaze of glory at that. Very, very nice, and indeed these two should take their rightful place.
BTW I know that the Nautilus was done and is on the archive

A little bit of modern German Navy:

The Class 205 U-boats were small submarines, designed for fighting ships in the Baltic Sea. In the last years of their career, two of them were extensively modified:

U-11 was modified into a target ship in the mid-tolate 1980s, reclassified as Class 205A and equipped with a secondary hull.This hull protected her against accidental hits from training torpedoes and in this form she was a unique ship in the NATO forces. U-11 was decomissioned in 2003 and is now a museum ship located in Burgstaaken on the island of Fehmarn.

U-12 was modified in the 1990s as a testbed for new sonar technologies and reclassified as Class 205B. The results and developements tested on U12 were later incorporated into the new Class 212A u-boats. U12 was decomissioned in 2005 and scrapped in 2008.

And who said ramming bows were dead? :P

Interesting little modifications. Nice to see these here.
Are we going to see the basic Type 205 too?

As you can tell by the credits, the original Class 205 was done by Darth Panda and is already on the main site. All I can offer is this little update, if it's okay:

Updated ...

It's basically a stretched Valiant class SSN. Five boats were planned, the fifth was to be named the Ramillies. This class was reported to be the envy of the USN.
