The U-47 (Unterseeboot 47) was a submarine U-Boot Type VII B in service in the German Kriegsmarine during World War II. Released by the Krupp factories of Kiel February 25, 1937, entered service Dec. 17, 1938. 
 
The U-47 became famous following his second mission of the war: October 14, 1939, under the command of G√ľnther Prien, penetrated into the naval base of the Royal Navy in Scapa Flow, managed to sink the British battleship HMS Royal Oak. After this success led eight other missions of the war, remaining at sea for 238 days, and sank 30 merchant ships (for a total tonnage of 193,808 t) and damaging eight more. 
 
Party for the tenth war patrol 20 February 1941, the U-47 failed to return to base. For many years it was believed that the U-47 was sunk by the British destroyer HMS Wolverine, to the west of Ireland; However, by analyzing archival sources, it appeared that this destroyer actually attacked another German submarine, the AU.  In the absence of an explanation then ascertained with regard to the fate of the U-47 and its 45 crew members , many hypotheses have been formulated: underwater mines, mechanical problems, or friendly fire, are just some of the possible causes of the sinking of this submarine.
