HobbyBoss 1/350 French Submarine Surcouf  83522

Plastic model kit, assembly required.  Glue, paint and finishing supplies not included.

Surcouf was the largest French cruiser submarine.

She served in both the French Navy and the Free French Naval Forces during the Second World War. She was lost during the night of 18/19 February 1942 in the Caribbean Sea, possibly after colliding with an American freighter.

Surcouf was named after the French privateer Robert Surcouf.

She was the largest submarine built until surpassed by the first Japanese I-400-class submarine in 1943.

Surcouf had a twin-gun turret with 203 mm (8-inch) guns, the same calibre as that of a heavy cruiser, provisioned with 600 rounds.

She was designed as an “underwater heavy cruiser”, intended to seek and engage in surface combat.

For reconnaissance purposes, the boat carried a Besson MB.411 observation floatplane in a hangar built abaft of the conning tower. However, the floatplane was also mainly used for gun calibration purposes.
