U-900 is a 2008 German comedy movie directed by Sven Unterwaldt. Essen, 1944. Black market trader Atze Schröder and his buddy Samuel hope for an early invasion of the Americans so that the war ends. But a chain of unfortunate circumstances ensures a hasty escape, which also joins actress Maria. It ends on the last available German submarine, the U-900, which is hijacked by the trio. The crew, however, is on a secret mission. The film mainly parodies the 1981 movie Das Boot.
The following weapons were used in the film U-900:
The Walther P38 pistol is used by General Strasser (Jürgen Schornagel) and Leutnant Block (Christian Kahrmann). During the mutiny Oberleutnant Von Stetten (Götz Otto) takes briefly the pistol. LI (abbreviation for Leitender Ingenieur; Chief engineer) Grade (Sven Walser) then takes the Walther.
Von Stetten's sidearm is a Walther PPK.
Spanish Mauser M43
The majority of German soldiers use M43 Spanish Mausers.
Some accurate Karabiner 98k can be seen during Atze's vision of his execution.
The MP40 is used by German troops at the Port of Toulon. Some crew members of the U-900 are also armed with this submachine gun.
An MG34 is briefly seen mounted in a watchtower at the Port.
C35 88 / 45 Schiffskanone
The U-900 front deck gun is a C35 88 / 45 Schiffskanone. The submarine also portraits the U-571 from the 2000 movie.
An unknown AA gun is mounted onboard. In the previous movie the submarine was armed with a 2 cm Flak 38.
