U-1406 was allocated to the US Navy as a war prize, but though it was taken to the USA in 1945 it was never repaired or taken into service, being disposed of in 1948. The Royal Navy later conducted trials with her sister ship, U-1407, as HMS Meteorite, to gain experience in hydrogen-peroxide propulsion technologies, but only after it had undergone a very long and expensive refit".||Photo i.d. courtesy of Sascha Hornbach.|
