Description


You are bidding on a FANTASTIC example of a WW2 German Kriegsmarine U-BOAT G7a (TI) Torpedo Engine Motor Part!  This was used by various U-Boats and ships throughout the war.

  

The G7a (TI) was the standard issue Kriegsmarine torpedo during the early years of World War II. It was a steam-powered design, using a wet heater engine burning decaline, with a typical range of about 7,500 metres (24,600 ft) while running at 40 knots (74 km/h; 46 mph). It was replaced beginning in 1942 by the electrically powered G7e torpedo, which did not leave a trail of bubbles in the water and thus did not reveal the location of the submarine. G7a’s remained in service in other roles, including surface ships, until the end of the war.

 

Made of brass and steel, this G7a Torpedo Engine Motor part is in AMAZING condition for its age!  Some corrosion, marks, and wear due to the age (as well as a dent or two), but VERY solid otherwise!  Also retains some hand-stamped part numbers.  VERY solid, I have shown its location in the last photos.  Could use a bit of clean-up, but otherwise a VERY nice and original item for any U-Boot/Kriegsmarine collection or restoration project!


 

Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

——————- TERMS OF SALE —————–

All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase. 

 

——————- ABOUT ME —————– 

Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
