Which is the sub you can add bits to that will last most of the war as i cant find a list.
Is it the VIIc or the IXb, or anything else

Add bits as in upgrades? If that's what you mean, both of them.

I like the IX B through '44. I always like to keep a deck gun.

The main disadvantages of the type IX Boats are their slow dive & turning speed. But you have more powerful deck gun and more torpedoes instead.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I agree IXB has the best "longevity" value; most of the IX- type upgrades can be added to it. The price, as Michiel correctly mentioned, are slow dice speed and large size. In the VII-type series, an upgrade from VIIb to VIIC or VIIC/41 is in my opinion unavoidable from 43 on (note vice versa price; better manoeuverability but shorter range compared to IX-type boats; if you wabnt to cross the Atlantic a IX-type boat is a must but if you want to raid poers a VII-type is much more suitable).
In the end it's all a trade-off between different characteristics and you need to experiment which boat suits your career plans an your playing style best.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Use the vertical!
