Examine the impenetrable submarine pens the Nazis built to protect U-boats from Allied attacks in part two of Nazi Mega Weapons airing Wednesday, July 24, 2013 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV. To create a haven in port for their lethal U-boat submarines, the Nazis built massive, impenetrable concrete submarine pens. Structures too immense to be hidden, they were constructed to withstand direct hits from even the biggest Allied bombs. Such was their size and strength that these pens survive today, a testament to their engineering.

Nazi Mega Weapons airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. July 17 through the 31 on WXXI-TV.
