The UAK symbol on the tower suggests it would have to be one of the following Type VII U-boats built at the Danziger Werft, Danzig:

U 407, U 412, U 417, U 420, U 424, U 428, U 1162, U 1166, U 1170.

U 404 is on that list too but since it has the distinctive "Lochness monster" 6. Flottille emblem all over the tower perhaps you may exclude that one.

This boat is allready identified by Axel as U 404. This boat commissioned without a wind deflector.

I was not aware that this was part of a quiz. My apologies.
