General notes on this boat
Due to a lot of building defects, in November 1944 U-3001 became a school boat at the yard, where new crews had their first experience with this new type of boat.Read more about the Schnorchel and see list of fitted boats.
Men lost from U-boats
Unlike many other U-boats, which during their service lost men due to accidents and various other causes, U-3001 did not suffer any casualties (we know of) until the time of her loss.
