and I would like to be 100% sure

Suffixes are generally a combination of a tolerance identifier and a package identifier. T is the package here and C is a commercial spec. Not sure if this is the data sheet you found or not: https://www.datasheetq.com/datasheet-do ... ld/UA741TC

It shows all the different packages with their suffixes. “T” is just a 8-pin DIP (bottom left) and in the specs (middle of the page) you can see the difference between military spec (“A”) and commercial.

Also, pretty much anything with a 741 in it will do. LM741, etc.
