After Allied landing in the North Africa in November, 1942 German troops captured French ships based at Bizerte and transferred nine submarines to Italy in December, 1942.
French Requin class submarines Phoque, Requin, Espadon and Dauphin, renamed FR111, FR113, FR114 and FR115 respectively. At once they were put on conversion to transports. All original armament was removed, only two 13.2mm AA MGs were left only. Submarines could carry 50t of dry cargo and 145t of fuel. Only FR111 was commissioned by Italians. Remaining three boats in September, 1943 were scuttled on dockyards by crews or sunk by Germans.
