The Type IX U-boat was designed by Germany in 1935 and 1936 as a large ocean-going submarine for sustained operations far from the home support facilities. Type IX boats were briefly used for patrols off the eastern United States, in an attempt to disrupt the stream of troops and supplies bound for Europe. The extended range came at the cost of longer dive times and decreased maneuverability, which is why the smaller Type VII was produced in greater numbers and used for the bulk of operations. It was derived from the Type IA, and appeared in various sub-types.
Type IXs had six torpedo tubes, four at the bow and two at the stern. They carried six reloads internally and had five external torpedo containers three at the stern and two at the bow which stored ten additional torpedoes. The total of 22 torpedoes allowed U-boat commanders to follow a convoy and strike night after night. As mine-layers they could carry 44 TMA or 66 TMB mines, but many of the IXC boats were not fitted for mine operations.
Secondary armament was provided by one large Utof 105/45 gun with about 110 rounds. Anti-aircraft armament differed throughout the war. They had two periscopes in the tower. Types IXA and IXB had an additional periscope in the control room, which was removed in Type IXC and afterward.

About the additional files included for mobile and augmented reality applications:
* The .obj and .dae formats above include additional file sizes which contain reduced polygons and vertices and are ideal to use on mobile devices. These minified 3d model files have been algorithmically optimized and reduced to be lightweight and to be displayed at a smaller scale, read more about the file sizes.
* The optimization and conversion to .wt3 file is still in beta, so please let us know if you have any issues with it. View the 3D Model in 3D: To view all the available sizes in 3D, click on the View in 3D tab above.
