Copied? Not sure about that as the boats look pretty different.

Influenced by the Type XXI? You bet!

I would be very interested in finding some citations that show that the SSN-571 was copied from the Type XXI.

There were 10 years between the Type XXI and the SSN-571. I am pretty sure there were other innovations that may have also influenced the design of the SSN-571. I would hazard a guess that the designs of the various Walter Boats also had influence on the SSN-571.

But Hey, I have been wrong on this forum many times. smiling smiley
