U-84 was launched on 26 February 1941 and commissioned on 29 April 1941. She operated during the Second Battle of the Atlantic during the Second World War before being sunk while under the command of Horst Uphoff on 7 August 1943 in the North Atlantic, in position 27°33′N 68°02′W / 27.55°N 68.03°W / 27.55; -68.03Coordinates: 27°33′N 68°02′W / 27.55°N 68.03°W / 27.55; -68.03 by a Mk 24 homing torpedo from an American Liberator aircraft (VB-105/B-4 USN). 46 dead (all hands lost).[1]

U-84 served on 8 patrols and accounted for 6 ships sunk and 1 ship damaged during World War II. She operated in the Gulf of Mexico for a time. Commanded by Captain Uphoff, U-84 torpedoed the freighter Baja California just forward of midships while in the Gulf of Mexico on 19 July 1942 at 06:45. Baja California sank in about 114 feet (35 m) of water about 60 to 70 nautical miles (110 to 130 km) southwest of Fort Myers, Florida.
