Early November 1939, returned to base and was offered a new sub. I accepted and it was a VIIB. I was expecting a VIIC, which I got on the previous career. The first were commissioned beginning of November 1940.
There were a lot of complaints in the forum that the VIIB wasn't offered - that's clearly wrong. My question is, I don't want to get stuck with a VIIB. Will I be offered a VIIC at some point? Also, will I be offered a VIIC/41? The first should become available in August '43.
Also, what happens if you don't accept? Do you only get once chance or, by waiting does that improve your odds of being offered a VIIC later?
