    You have longer range and more torpedos but...

    BDU will send you on longer patrols.
    You take much longer to dive.
    It is much harder to keep depth in rough weather.
    You are a larger target.

    For some the advantages out weigh the disadvantages.

    For me it is about even and I have 4 careers going. 2 VII, 2 IX. One of each kind VII and IX in late war and early war.

    Sometiems I feel like a VII sometimes I don't.

    I have to agree, but the reason i keep going back to the IX is the extra torpedo loadout and the longer patrols. It's 1941 at the moment but when 1942 begins I will venture to the Caribean for some Tanker action - loads of them down there!! With the IX, I have the fuel and the weapons for a sustained patrol.
