Eva's Hammer is the largest U-boat in the Kriegsmarine. It is seen in the 2014 game Wolfenstein: The New Order.
Wolfenstein: The New OrderEdit
The Eva's Hammer is not seen until Chapter 11 - U-Boat where B.J. Blazkowicz stows away inside a torpedo delivered to the U-Boat by one of Klaus Kreutz's contacts. Having boarded the ship, Blazkowicz clears the vessel of its crew to make it secure for the other members of the Kreisau Circle to board. They then use the craft to access Set Roth's Da'at Yichud safe keep below the Atlantic Ocean.
By the final chapter, the Kreisau Circle used the Eva's Hammer to attack Deathshead's Compound. They fired a Spindly Torque from its cannon to attack the defending Nazi forces. They also used the ship's nuclear cannon after Blazkowicz obtained the nuclear decryption keys from the Lunar Base.
The Eva's Hammer most likely became the Kreisau Circle's new, mobile headquarters after the assault on Deathshead's Compound. Because of this status and its capacity to launch nuclear shells it became a priority target for the German Government to recapture or destroy. The Kreisau Circle then directed the Eva's Hammer to link up with Anti-Fascist Insurgents in the former United States, coming under attack from Nazi forces in the Atlantic Ocean.
- The U-boat is most likely named after Eva Braun, Adolf Hitler's lover and wife.
- Eva's Hammer is based on the real world plans for the Kriegsmarine's Cruiser Class U-boats. These vessels would have been twice as large as the standard U-boat of the German Navy and would have been capable of carrying the Arado Ar-231 scout seaplane as well as the Flettner Fl-282 helicopter.
- The theft of the flagship U-boat and its nuclear decryption keys, and its later role in Deathshead's death, would have been deeply demoralizing for the Nazi regime.
