Wow... U-210 fate - Sunk 6 Aug, 1942 in the North Atlantic south of Cape Farewell, Greenland, in position 54.24N, 34.37W, by ramming, depth charges and gunfire from the Canadian destroyer HMCS Assiniboine. 6 dead and 37 survivors.

The U-boat (type VIIC) was rammed, not the other way around! The sub bow in the photo is DEFINITELY NOT a type VIIC! Give it up, the whole article looks to be a spoof.
