The submarine SPRINGEREN of the Tumleren class (originally the Kobben class) with hull number S324 was the Danish Navy's last submarine in the water. SPRINGEREN is today a museum submarine.
The type was a relatively small single-drum diesel-electric boat - particularly suitable for operations in coastal waters - where it had good inherent potential for getting undetected close to enemy installations and units.
The submarine was built for Norway at Rheinstahl-Nordseewerke, Emden, Germany as 'Kya' (S317), laid down on May 26, 1963, launched on 20 February 1964. Transferred to the Danish Navy, and commissioned as the S324 'Springeren', on 17 October 1991, and finally decommissioned on 25 November 2004.
