Modification of VII series intended for supply "wolf packs" by torpedoes. Structurally repeated VIID series: additional 10.5m-long compartment was indented to hold 24 spare torpedoes unloaded through the hatch in aft part of compartment by folding derrick. Besides, submarine carried 14 spare torpedoes (or 21 TMA mines) for own TTs.
Process of unload of torpedoes in the high sea was rather labour-consuming and dangerous: both transferring two torpedoes submarines spent about an hour during which they were practically been deprived possibility to be loaded. As during building of a series the circumstances in Atlantic have cardinally changed, boats were not used on direct assignment and used for carriage of cargo between ports.
1944-1945, some survived: - FuMO 30 radar; + FuMO 61 radar
