    it is S-195 of Walter Knapp of the 8th Schnellboote Flottille in 1945. Hes erved through out the war and lastly taking on soviet MTB's and other soviet craft in the Baltic during Germany's escape in whatever shipping they could find to Copenhagen.....

    good guess though.....it is actually part of the S-100 boat class
