In March 1935, as the chancellor and the head of state Adolf Hitler repealed Part V of the Versailles treaty. Three months later, the new U-1 launched. This type IIA coastal patrol U-Boat is an implementation of plans from the previous war and with new designs. In April 1936, the Type I was commissioned into the German Navy.

Later on, the German Navy produced the Type III and IV, all served as a basis for the development of the VII class, which was introduced in July 1936. To meet different demands, the Type VII had several modifications. Type VII submarines were the workhorses of the German WWII U-Boat fleet, they the most widely used U-Boats of the war and were the most produced submarine class in history. To overcome the major drawback of VIIA, limited fuel capacity, the VIIB has an additional 33 tones of fuel in an external saddle. Powered by two supercharged MAN diesel engines, the VIIB has also increased speed on the surface.
