A poster of the German submarine in WW2 type VII-C
Type VIIC was a slightly modified version of the successful Type VIIB boats.
They had essentially the same engine setup and horsepower, but were slightly bigger and heavier, making them slower than the VIIB.
The VIIC was the workhorse of the German submarine force during World War II from 1941 and boats of this type were built throughout the war. The first VIIC boat put into service was the U-69 in 1940. The VIIC was an effective combat machine and was seen in almost all areas where the U-boat force was operating although their range was not as great. than that of the larger IX types. .
The VIIC entered service when the Axis was at its peak. He also had to face the final defeat in the face of the Allied anti-submarine campaign in late 1943 and 1944.
Perhaps the most famous VIIC boat was the U-96 which is featured in the movie "Das Boot". Many of these boats were fitted with the Schnorkel in 1944-1945.
