Looks like MLU.
It's a good chance to see the Oxygen and Hydrogen tanks (parts of the AIP system) outside the pressure hull.
person
Yes, Frank. According to information; 5 officers and 22 men. Of these I do not know if all are male, or mixed male - female. In Norway we have had female commanding officer onboard at least one sub.
person
I am amazed!. A crew of only 27.
