The type XXIII elecktroboat Uboat is prime example. That sub would not look out of place in the American Navy of 1970-1980.
It was light years ahead of anything in the rest of the world and contributed greatly to the direction the US fleet took after WW2. Wouldn't be scary to see "The return of the Nazis"?

b) given the difficulties with supplying the current base there, how did the Nazis manage it during WWII? Let me guess, they used UFOs?

Erm but the south pole as you know it will have moved since WW2 because of the Earth moving or 'Tilting' on it's axis the actual defined magnetic pole will have wandered due to changes in the earths magentic field currently it's near Antartica also there's two distinct varaitions of what is thought to be the 'Actual' south pole the magnetic one that i've already metioned and the ceremonial one that has to be moved due to climate change every year because the ice caps are melting the pole it's self has to be moved.
SAMISDAT's Antarctic Expedition in Search of Hitler's Flying Saucer Bases
and the South Polar Opening into Inner Earth will be the unique event of a
lifetime. As only a very limited number of people can be accommodated, our
selection standards are of necessity rigorous. The approximate cost per person
on this expedition may be as high as $9,999.00.
When she became increasingly sick and weak, Nielsen agreed to a heroic Air National Guard crew''s offer to fly in a replacement and bring her back to the US for treatment. At the time, it was the coldest and earliest landing of the season at the South Pole, according to Nielsen. The recent rescue of Dr. Ronald S. Shemenski now holds that record.
A report in the Chilean newspaper El Mercurio of Santiago on 5 March 1947 sheds some possible light onto the strategic importance of polar reconnaissance. The article by Lee van Atta entitled "Admiral Richard E Byrd refers to the Strategic Importance of the Poles" had been sent from "On Board Mount Olympus on the High Seas". It is often misquoted in translation by occult enthusiasts, the usual interpolations in the text being of "flying objects" having the ability "to fly from pole to pole at incredible speeds", but a better translation is:
"Admiral Byrd declared today that it was imperative for the United States to initiate defence measures against the possible invasion of the country by hostile aircraft operating from the polar regions. The Admiral stated, "I don't want to frighten anyone unduly but it is a bitter reality that in the case of a new war the continental United States will be attacked by aircraft flying in from one or both poles." As regards the recently terminated expedition, Byrd said that the most important result of the observations and discoveries made is the current potential effect which they will have on the security of the United States."
I agree Defcon, we humans may not be able to live on the surface but imagine if we drilled a hole down to the rock, built a city in a cavern and had a vast water supply
I believe that this theory is possible and would be the ideal base because of it's isolation. Is that being too far fetched?
