Why, in God's name, would you want with a Type XXI uboat for..???

The only advantage that sub had, was being able to stay submerged for a long time... until the crew needed fresh air, to live. As best as I recall, at any rate. Torp's were limited worse than the Type II's... & did not carry reserve torp's that the crew could reload with... once the fish were fired... it was automatically... back to port.

Now, the Type XXIII, was a much better option. It did carry reloads, & had the same long submergence capability of the XXI.

Just to be clear here.. NOT denigrating your interest in it, just asking...

depending on the base you choose for your career you could get a XXI in 1944.
there should be a document in a support folder that shows the matrix of bases vs boat-types. check it out.

ok, i checked out the DW documentation and there is no matrix. i know i saw one but am not sure where it went.

to your question....
there are two paths to a Type XXI.
Flotilla 11 - Bergen. XXI is available 12/15/44.
Flotilla 17 - Gotenhafen. aka 24 Flot. XXI is available 9/1/44.

the boat availability is one factor. your performance must rate an upgrade.
good luck, Herr Kaleun!
