149 cases of revised fates.

Boats with no certain revision dates
The following is a list of U-boats that have revised post-war fate listed but we're not certain when the revision was done (in many cases a certain fate has been revised again and again post-war).

There are probably many boats missing from this list since probably most U-boat fates have been revised one time or another.

U-602, U-745, U-865, U-2505, U-3004, U-3506

6 boats with revised fates without known dates.

Legacy
