Type IX

Post by bad karma » 07 Jul 2014 12:48

Hi,

picture 1.

I think this is U 865 (Dietrich Stellmacher)

Iam NOT 100% sure.


Image


picture 2.

U 171 through U 176 series.

I don`t think this is U 159 or U 160,
this boat has a different wind-deflector,
and these two steps above the ``H`` vent are differnt too.

And I see some sort of emblem painted in front of the cunning-tower.

Image


my best regards,

Ron.

Hello Bad karma,

When i look the picture showing the end of U 185, i see it had the same wind deflector. Maybe your ship was from U 183 to U 185 serie ?

Best regards,

Lionfish.

Hi
865, agree
Picture 2. 10th Flotilla boat. I think 160? Not many 10th Flotilla boats carried emblem.

Hi,

U 183 through U 194 series had a bend in the railing,between vertical bar 4 and 5.

This small bend can be seen here on U 889.

Image


There are a few differences between these two boats.


U 160,19-04-1943.

What do you think?

Hi,

I got this picture from EBAY.COM.

Note;the ``T``shape opening in the point of her bow,
this is a underwater refuelling system.

Hello,

I forgot U 1233 , U 1234 , and maybe U 1235 , page 6 from the book : Vom Original zum Modell: Uboottyp IXC.
The picture shows the tree submarines in the U-Boot-Bunker Fink II.
We can see on this picture the underwater refuelling system on the bow of U 1233 and U 1234. The bow of U 1235 is out of the picture.

Best regards,

Lionfish.

Hello,

Pictures of U 1233, U 1234 and U 1235 inside the Bunker Fink II.
U1233-U1234-U1235-Fink-II.jpg
And a picture of the U806's bow.
U-806Bow.jpg
You can see the underwater refuelling system.

The both pictures were scanned from the book : Vom Original zum Modell: U-Boottyp IXC.

Best regards,

Lionfish.

Hi Lionfish,

Still the list is incomplete but this is some fantastic research from Simon and Maciek.

Hi,

The boat in front is U 1231,you can see the white U-nr written on the CT.
The boat next to her is U 1010,the other two Type VII-C`s i can`t identify.
Image

Another point of view.
Image

What interested me is that i see on U 1231`s foredeck some liferaft containers.
Image

This picture is listed in my archive as U 1231?. I don`t see any liferaft containers at all on her foredeck.
Image


And this one is too listed in my archive as U 1231 ??????????And this boat has five liferaft containers on her foredeck,
and in the point of her bow,a underwater refuelling system.
Image


U-who,with a underwater refeulling system.
Image

This is a picture from a album from EBAY,i will post the pictures soon on AHF.

If i look close to her foredeck,this boat is from the U 801 through U 806 series,
she has also a underwater refeulling system.
Image




my best regards,

Ron.

Hi,

U-503(Otto Gericke)...........can anyone confirm this.
The cunning tower looks to me it`s from the U 502 through U 504 series.
Image

Thanks.

Good Luck
