PRO -

lots of torpedos
good range
good flak config

CON -

sucks at dive time
sucks at turn radius
sucks at underwater speed
its big - so depth charges more likely to hit it in a spread

Plus, if you are good with your torps, you can get 50k in a VII without trying. Plus the type VII gets you to all the important areas of the sea, north atlantic and england.

btw, I just took down a bogue escort carrier and an illustrious fleet carrier in my type VII.

heck yes!

everyone has their own ways... i like the type IID. some will argue the type IX is the best, while others will tell you there's no boat better than the type VII. well, its all about your style and what you prefer http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The XXI is noisy and slow and you have to come up for air. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

Also, no anti-ship missiles and no Mark 48 ADCAP torps.

I like the VII-C or VII-C/41. The VII-B doesn't give the the Mark IV conning tower - the U-FLAK configuration - whereas the C's do. Talk about firepower ... 3 Mark 42, twin 37 mm FLAK guns are impressive in action.

You don't need to go on the long patrols. Instead, i sail around the west portion of England and easily get around 80,000 tons per patrol. Also, as someone mentioned, the flak power is awesome. I brough down 20 hurricanes in my last patrol. Reports spanned over several pages of the captain's log. As for dive time, you just gotta live with it. I think the big torpedo load outweighs that con.

The IX certainly starts out with better FLAK. Parity comes with the VII's Mark III conning tower and the advantage p***es to the the VII once the U-FLAK configuration comes in.

I have Kaluns in both IX and VII. They both have their advantages. One advantage of a VII is that it is much better and keeping depth while hovering. Very good since I like hover infront of a convoy and let it run me over. I know where to go that the destroyer will not find me.
