Sunk 4 April, 1945 at Germaniawerft dockyard 4 in Kiel, by US bombs. 2 dead, unknown number of survivors.
Renamed S 7 after being transferred to Italy in exchange for transport vessels. Reverted to Germany as U-749 after the Italian capitulation.
Men lost from U-boats
Unlike many other U-boats, which during their service lost men due to accidents and various other causes, U-749 did not suffer any casualties (we know of) until the time of her loss.
