German submarine U-487 was a Type XIV supply and replenishment U-boat of Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine during World War II. Her keel was laid down 31 December 1941 by Germaniawerft in Kiel as yard number 556. She was launched on 17 October 1942 and commissioned on 21 December 1942 with Oberleutnant zur See Helmut Metz in command. On 13 July, U-487 was attacked in the central Atlantic by five United States Navy TBF Avengers and F4F Wildcats from the escort carrier USS Core. The U-boat's crew were taken by surprise, so much so that sunbathers were seen on the casing. One Wildcat was shot down, but 31 men were killed and the U-boat sunk. The 33 survivors were taken prisoner onboard USS Barker.
