Which year are you starting in?

Check the Flotillas (http://www.communitymanuals.com/shiii/index.php?title=Career_Timeline#Available_Ports.2F Flotillas) section of the community manual for a list of which flotilla eventually gets what. But I agree with HW3... start with 7th Flotilla, and be prepared to transfer out if you want a type IX.

The one I'm in, .. not sure which one it is, '41 Nazaire is home base.
Here we visit exotic islands and have fun with the local mermaids, drink good German beer, wine and schnapps while on patrol, even when we're on shore leave http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.
Also we always break the rules. We never report to BDU - when we leave port it's the last they hear of us until we return. Nobody's complained yet! We never end up at our assigned patrol grid, ok I lie, only for 24 hrs then we dissapear to the islands http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif. When the watch sees a convoy from the island crows nest, that's when we go into action, although it takes a day to get going. Life is good here, but don't tell anybody http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The 7th starts in Keil in 1939 then moves to St. Nazaire when it is ready in 1940.

Yup I must be with the 7th, I've had a VII-B from the start ('39). The TypeII's are not that much good. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
