|U-883||AG Weser, Bremen||1091||1943-1945|
U-883 was launched on 28 April 1944 and commissioned 27 March 1945, her career ended in Operation Deadlight.
U-884 was launched on 17 May 1944 but was badly damaged on 30 March 1945 by US bombs while still in dockyard hands.
U-885 - U-888 were laid down but construction halted on 30 Sept 1943 which is also the date when all other IXD/42 contracts were cancelled.
These boats were a variation of the IXD which in turn were derived from the IXC only with lengthened pressure hull and enlarged outer casing. The IXD/42 was almost identical to the IXD but with more engine power (5400 ehp against 4400 of the IXD).
