View Full Version : IXc/40

OK so I am at the end of 1942 in my trusty type IXc. But now the IXc/40 is available. After inspecting the brutally limited information provided in the upgrade screen, I am left asking what else does it have?

So I checked out the sub database and low and behold they don't even mention the /40.

So now I ask you, does anyone know what kind of advantage there is to the /40?

These boats were a slight modification of the type IXC boats. They had a slightly increased range, somewhat higher surface speed and were a bit heavier at 1545 tons fully loaded and submerged.

I´m exactly in the same position: I´m actually running the IXC and have the opportunity to go for the C/40 and the D2...Since I see the differences between the C and C/40 are minimal, and on the other hand the enormous difference in range from the C to the D2, I´m just accumulating renown to go directly for the D2 and skip the C/40...IIRC, the D2 needs 9000 renown and actually I have about 6000...I guess I´ll have it in 3 or 4 more patrols, since my average renown by patrol is like 1500 to 1900...
