Metal anchor chain, over 480 pieces to assemble. New Complete Molds. Available end of September 2016. The Danton is a battleship of the French Navy Danton class built from 1906. Commissioned in June 1911, it was sunk during the First World War by the German submarine U-64 March 19, 1917 off Sardinia. The wreck of the Danton was discovered in 2007 and formally identified in February 2009. The Danton was the first model of its class of ship, belonging to the category of warships known as pre-Dreadnought and succeeding the Liberty class.Moving 3,000 tons more than its predecessors, this boat was the first French navy to use turbine engines. Ordered in 1906, this boat was technically outdated when it was commissioned since the British drafted HMS Dreadnought, launched in the same year, and became the standard for battleships. The Danton, who was sailing from Toulon to Corfu, Greece, was attacked by a U-Boat of the German Imperial Navy, U-64, on March 19, 1917, at about 1 pm, off the coast of Sardinia. Two torpedoes having hit the hull from the front and the middle, the boat sank in 30 minutes. At the time of his loss, various reports indicated that the ship's captain, Captain Delage, and many officers did not attempt to evacuate the ship.The boat's electrical appliances were affected, which prevented the launching of the lifeboats. The loss of life was 296 in total out of 946 crew members and 155 sea passengers to join their ship in Greece. 806 people were recovered by the destroyer Massue assisted by the trawler Louise-Marguerite some recovered after nearly 7 hours of swimming. The wreckage was found at geographical coordinates 38 ° 45.3511 N 8 ° 03.3043 E by more than 1000 m depth, 35 km south-west of Sardinia in 2007 during studies by the Dutch geotechnical company Fugro for the layout of the future GALSI gas pipeline which will connect Algeria and Italy; it was identified definitively in February 2009. because of disagreements on its position with the French admiralty.She thought the wreck lay several nautical miles from her current position. It is the photos of its turrets bearing 240mm guns that have made it possible to remove the ambiguity.
