Actually my favorite Type is the one that can't be sunk! But I'll vote in this poll since you included some of my favorites. With only five choices it's hard to pick what to include/exclude.

not many votes so far, but I am surprised ! I would have been sure the VIIC would have won the vote !
A typical sub design, one of most wellknown sub all over the world, a great movie about it...etc

Guys, could you add your comments so I can know the reasons of your choice.

By the way, I voted for the XXIII (as everybody knows now http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif) but the XXI is in second place in my heart, certainly the best looking sub of the WWII, amazing by its design and possibilities !

I prefer the VIIC. Out of all the subs, it may not be the best tactical sub, but it had the best style.

Torpedo incoming off the port bow!
We want a demo!!!

I took the Type VII: average, common, reliable. It just is.

After that I like the Type II, for the same reason I like the U.S. 'S' boats: early, more primitive, more of a challenge.

That's from a gamers point of view. If I had to actually live on a WWII boat, I'd want an American fleet boat. Why? Showers and ice cream!


The poster said "Join The Navy, See The World". So I did, and I'm here to tell you, the world is flat and blue.

A sub that CANNOT sink is a sub in drydock http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif

XXI was the best of WW2, in design anyways.

Id say the Balao (improved Gato) would be my fav of the whole war. I wonder how many millions of tons I sank with one in SS2.
