I absolutely love the IXC/40. Great range, superb gun selection, vast number of torpedo holds and the dive times aren't to shabby.

The IX-D2 has a flaw in the torpedo loadout that causes the weapons management screen to go haywire (see Unofficial BugList Collection Thread: Page 16 for my complete bug listings).

If it didn't have that quirk, then the IX-D2 would be #1 in my opinion.

I think I've seen a poll like this before. For the last one, my answer was IX-C. In this career (actually it's two careers played simultaneously), I've stayed with the VII-C. I enjoy both.

VIIB for me.
Yes I like the extra torps on the XI but I also like having pleanty of deck gun ammo, something the XI lacks due to larger shell sizes.

IX's It gives you a feeling of power.

Type VIIB/C for me as well.
I love using the Ubootwaffe€s workhorse.

No frills, no leather €˜n lace, just a practical, utilitarian €˜jeep of the sea.€ A good, strong, hard-running, hard-working submersible gun & torpedo boat.
Would love to be able to mount a .105 in the place of the .88, but I€ll take the latter & put it to good use.
Fourteen torpedoes is €˜plenty€ for me €" and I appreciate the relatively mid-range length of Patrol times (can be two weeks to two months) €" perfect.

Good dive time; 150 meter max depth is adequate for virtually any circumstance; decent turn radius considering the length, weight and propulsion system of the boat, and with intelligent upgrades made to her, doesn€t take all that long to make a fine boat even better: decent speeds surfaced & submerged, good battery upgrades and just a peach of a snorkel boat €¦
What€s not to love in the Type VII(C)?

Bar none €" my weapon (Vessel) of choice.

I'm wondering what the difference between the IXC and the IXC/40 is.
The only thing I can see when reading about it ingame is that it's slightly slower and has slightly improved range.

Range and a extra fish or two.

TypeII always!
The rest of you are of the same kind as the "Thompson n00b cannonneer" in CoD. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

With only five torpedoes, you really have to plan your attack cautiously. There's no way of catching up with a limping vessel while submerged, and no artillery either (I'd gladly replace the FLAK with a 88mm gun).

Type II €" Type VII €" Types IX / XXI

Duck €" Eagle €" Ostrich.
All fine birds€¦ I mean, boats.

W. Iriving delivers good points spoken on behalf of the Type II.
I just disagree with the implication it€s any less personal in a Type VII.
The latter just offers a little more with which to express oneself €¦ http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

It's the range difference. If you run at ahead 12 knots, you can squeeze a few hundred miles out of a IXC/40 than with a standard IXC.

I enjoy the type II but - but then again I like the cr@p planes in IL2 the best (read biplanes & late 30's types). http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I haven't played the campaign long enough (I'm only on patrol 5) to see anything but the VIIB. I can't wait to experience the other subs! heheh

The IXB. The thing keeps me alive for ages now.

Type II: Way too small, not enough fish.
Type VII: Nice boat, great diving speed. But not enough torps and the small range it can travel doesn't do it for me.
Type XXI: Great boat. Nice torpedo load, but no deckgun and way to big to invade harbors.
