I will dig, but as I recall my research from years back, the limitation is on the torpedo's, NOT the sub. The depth transducer bellows were not that strong and if exposed to too much pressure the diaphragms would rupture.

I went to MK-48 Torpedo Tech school so torpedo's interested me as I studied WWII subs & their weapons.

EDIT...Page 215, step #24, the "Depth Mechanism" was only tested to 25feet of seawater. IE; Its "Test Depth"
