However, internal debate beam Vincent Schmitt believes a winds and tides could lead to even some-more of a UC-61 being exposed.

“Pieces reappear from time to time, though this is a initial time we learn so much.”

Historians contend a UC-61 was credited with falling during slightest 11 ships, possibly by laying mines or by banishment torpedoes.
