Type VII submarine

The Type VII submarine was a type of submarine used in the mirror universe on Earth in its 20th century. At least one of these was seen torpedoed by a Project 705 submarine during an otherwise unspecified conflict. (ENT: "In a Mirror, Darkly" opening credits)

Although not mentioned by name, the Type VII submarine appeared in the opening credits, indicating the vessel was manufactured and used in that universe. The footage shown in the credits originated from the 2000 Universal Studios war movie U-571.
Historically, the Type VII had been the most ubiquitous submarine, or "U-Boot" in German parlance, type used by the German Kriegsmarine during World War II, meaning that one of them being torpedoed by a Project 705 sub constituted an anachronism – in our universe at least – as the latter only became operational over two decades after the war. "U-Boot" stood for Unterseeboot, which in English literally translates into "undersea boat".
