Starting mid-1943, 91 u-boots Type VII C/41 have been launched. By then, the conditions of the battle had totally changed.
The “wolfpack tactic” achieved then seldom positive results against better protected convoys, especially with the introduction of air umbrellas. With the aim of a better defence when surfaced, the Type VII C/41 u-boots were fitted with a modified, larger bridge called “large wintergarten (winter garden)”; armed with two 20 mm flakzwillings and one automatic 37 mm M42U flakkanone.
Also fitted were: a swivelling snorkel mast for fresh air and fume exhaust, and four pressure boxes with 5-man floats were additionally typical of these boats. The use of better steel sheets allowed the maximum depth to reach 250 metres.
