I've looked in the SH3 community manual and there is nothing about being able to get the type IX-D2 during a campain, is this true?!?!?!?!

If you're using RUb and SH3 Commander you can start a career in 12th Flotilla anytime between December 1942 and August 1944 and you'll get an IXD2.

However, in the regular gameyou can't get one as a starting boat. You should eventually get access to them if you're in any flotilla that uses the Type IX though.

May 1944 - ish, IX-D2 becomes available at bases running Type IX's, of course. XXI's available at Bergen a little after D2's release.
Renown required to purchase and outfit a D2 is around 9000 (from memory) but someone else running a current career around '44 may have a more accurate figure. I have had a few careers going in '44 and the new boat release dates were not identical in each career.

Just for a comparison, a XXI is renown 30,000 plus upgrades. Ouch!
