Hello, this is a typ XIV supply submarine. U 459 to U 464 and U 487 to U 490.
U 489 and U 490 were never used at Bordeaux.

Best regards,
Lionfish.

Thank you for answer ! No clues to identify for sure this boot ? U 459 is the best candidat ....

Best regards

Hi there,

its U 460. But the boat was in box 8 from 25 March to 6 April 1943.
