Type II-D German U-Boat
The Type II-D was improved again over the Type II-C – the main improvement was the addition of saddle tanks. This increased the bunkers and radius a bit more. A small number were built; U-137 through U-152 and after coastal patrols were used then for training. The Type II-D carried six torpedoes or eight mines.

Deepest thanks to our friends at the U-Bootskameradschaft Kiel for allowing us to bring their sacred book containing the names of all 28,863 U-Bootfahrer who were lost in action during World War II here to the USA where we carefully copied all the names of the fallen and list them here on our site. Ours is the only website in the world that lists all these names.
Many thanks to our good friend and Sharkhunters Member since 1987
