The Type VII submarine was a submarine class that was used widely by Germany during World War II. The Type VII was the most produced version of the U-Boats with over 700 ships in the class. It had two diesel engines, two motors, and two shafts for propulsion and it had a maximum speed of eighteen knots on the surface and eight while submerged.
The Type VIIA was the first series of a new generation of attack U-Boats. These models held eleven torpedoes on board plus the 88 mm fast-firing deck gun with 220 rounds. Type VIIA were very agile on the surface. The ten Type
VIIA U-Boats were the U-27, U-28, U-29, U-30, U-31, U-32, U-33, U-34, U-35, and U-36. Out of all these, only two ever survived after the war and were scuttled in May 1945.
