Captained by Kommandant Fritz Heigler, the U-boat and its entire crew first disappeared from records in the North Atlantic in January 1945, when it departed on a mission to The Island where the Spanish smuggled El Dorado. However, the crew was attacked by the mutated descendants and the submarine was later marooned atop a waterfall in the Amazon, only to be found by Nathan Drake and Victor Sullivan many years later while searching for El Dorado themselves.
Role in Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Edit
Investigating the wreckage for clues, Nate stumbled upon the mutilated remains of the crew and a map of the island, along with the coordinates UK2642. When leaving the U-boat, Nate accidentally activated a torpedo, and he managed to escape just in time by crawling through one of the torpedo tubes.
Nate discovered that Sully was being held at gunpoint by Gabriel Roman and Atoq Navarro, who forced Nate to hand over the map before shooting Sully and seemingly killing him. The U-boat then exploded due to the torpedo, killing several of Roman's men - using this as a distraction, Nate escaped into the jungle.
