Don't think this is U-Class
GOing on the name alone, I would suggest this submarine was V-Class rather than U-Class. I know wikipedia currently lacks such as category but going by naming convention if nothing else, it seem improbable that this was a U-class boat -20:15, 20 December 2006 (UTC)

Correct in this case - Venturer was V-Class, but as a general warning DON'T go on name alone, because four U-Class had "V" names - Varangian, Vandal, Varne (of January 1943) and Vox (of January 1943) - while seven V-Class had "U" names - Upshot and Urtica, plus five others which were cancelled. Just to add to the confusion, the above-mentioned Varne and Vox were swiftly transferred to the Free Norwegigian and Free French Navies respectively and renamed Ula and Curie, and new submarines then building were given the same names - and these replacements Vox (of September 1943) and Varne (of February 1944) were of the V-class.

This article makes mention of solving a 3D targetting problem, this is not the same as a 2D surface target problem that was typical for WW2 and I shall make a note of this in the article. Damwiki1 (talk) 05:02, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
U-771 or U-864
There seems to be a contradiction at the beginning of the article. It says the Venturer sunk the U-771 then the article only mentions U-864 from then on. Which is correct? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 15:52, 22 March 2010 (UTC)
