The Type seven and Type nine were the striking force of the Kriegsmarine during the Battle of the Atlantic – a German attempt to cut off the British Isles and force the Allies to surrender.
In the first years of war, the Germans used them to cut off supply lines that were bringing weapons and equipment from the United States to United Kingdom.

When attacking, German U-boats were using so called “Wolfpack” tactic.
