A battle between 4 uboats, a type IIA, a type IID, a VIIB and a type XXI. The XXI sank the IIA within minutes after the beginning. Then the IID (Wolff) sank the XXI.
Then a 40 minute battle began between the VIIB and the IID. We sometimes were so close and with only a depth of 37 meters it is a miracle that we only once made contact (the VIIB hit my conning tower during my dive). In the end the VIIB launched 4 torpedos of which 2 hit the IID which then started to sink. But the IID had launched 3 homing torpedos just before he got hit and 2 of these torpedos hit the VIIB in the side.
A great battle. Hats off for Bangbang1974.
