Still would've moved the men out, and repaired it submerged.

Unless it was your electric engines, then you're a sitting duck.

What mod were you playing? Flooding realism in the vanilla version is terrible, I'm assuming it was GW but hey, it might be cool once I've finished my career.

U-108 in BB75.
Seventh Patrol Assigned to Port of Spain.

Two ships sunk so far. Diesel fuel 50 percent gone.

No sightings. Two contact updates in BB75 so I came here. No radar hits. Hydrophone contact with warship. I am so desperate for tonnage that I actually surfaced and attempted to position myself for a shot. Could not get into position.

Weather 6 Sea 5.

Convoy reported in CB31 heading ENE. God that's far. 7 knots. I'm trying anyway. Full speed on surface. Visibility about 800 meters. Radar completely useless. I hope to get another contact update along the way, or those two ships and one plane will be my patrol.

Intercepted Allied support convoy in Narvik fjord. Closed convoy from NW submerged. Slipped passed port flank destroyer (5) to close 8000 ton freighter; sank same with one electric eel at 1200 meters. Tried second freighter at similar range but less than optimal away angle; electric eel hit but was a dud. Rapidly switched to rearmost targeted troop transport--12000 tonner at 2500 meters with two steam eels set at 7 meters; both hit but also were duds. I was attacked and forced to crash 2H turning port full ninety to 200 meters. Thermal layer noted at 50 meters. Heard explosions and bulkheads parting on stricken freighter. Ran silent and evaded shallow depth charges until sunk by well trained three destroyer escort who read my mind.:dead:

U-174 Commander Karl Hardegen Just got done refiting at U-461 on September 3 1942. Moving back into action then is to return to base.

Returning to SHIII after a long absence. Decide to be bold on my third war patrol and sneak into Loch Ewe.

Expect, as with the Scapa visits I've made, to find at best a destroyer and a Fiji for my troubles.

Find a Nelson instead. Takes six torpedoes to put her down, by by Gott we did it. Stirred up the hornet's nest, with a mix of seven destroyers, Elcos, and trawlers all trying to find and kill me. Went north around the Isle of Ewe to escape, which they didn't see coming. Gunned it around the island at flank to charge batteries up just a little, then crept out the channel as silent as a mouse.

The patrol after was uneventful, but I'm happy. First time I've spotted a Battleship.

After a long delay I repurchased SH3 off steam, and was able to get the three mods I wanted (GWX, Sub Commander, and a widescreen mod) all working

Very rusty but I am going to play till I killed, then start a new guy at the same month and see how many captains it takes to get to the end of the war.

1st Patrol - Pre war shakedown patrol. (OOC - it was useful for me to remember the game controls)

2nd Patrol - War Begins as I am heading out to my spot. Sink six merchants For 16334 Tons

3rd Patrol - 7 Merchants and one Dutch warship. :oops: - Shot a lot of the merchants with the deck gun as the waters of the north sea were unseasonably calm. Found a Small Depot ship not moving 100 km North of Scapa flow. It was unlighted and fired two steam eels at long range. Turned out to be dutch and BDU was quite upset with me. They also sent me a reminder of how the french flag does not look like the dutch flag.

4th patrol - Fruitful, including sinking a large freighter (MV Siamese Prince) and I was awarded a Iron cross 2nd class. I also gave one to my watchman.

5th Patrol - Now well into 1940. Did not find much - but what I did find was good. A large freighter and a Glanville class freighter. Also found isolated tribal and a V&W steaming without zagging, and sent them to the bottom as well.

So far I sunk 20 merchants, and 3 warships, 59.5k in Merchant tonnage, and almost 10k in warship tonnage. Hopefully I can take part in some way with Operation Weserübung but that depends on the timing of the shipyards. (its Feb 1940)

Since it wasn't moving I think it was secretly waiting for a British ship to transfer supplies to. Glad I had some other tonnage to claim so I wasn't cashiered as a commander.
