There should have been an Ore Carrier added to that list... About 1,000km to go to Wilhelmshaven I stumbled upon once of them in the dark, calm seas with only my external stores and rear torpedoes left - the weather up until this point hadn't allowed for the external torpedo to be loaded. I was sprinting into position to fire from the rear and then finish with deck gun. Still had around 60 rounds left, my crew used up the other rounds to sink the effing Sloop! Whereupon to my good graces I got a CTD. I was so close to home as well, that I reloaded from my last save and just exited the patrol. I couldn't have stayed out much longer at sea because I realistically only had enough fuel to make the return journey, plus a buffer for high-speed if necessary. Therefore it seems as if the crew did make it home for Christmas afterall!

The patrol was not without its problems - apart from a rather disturbing lack of tonnage until I stumbled upon the Large Merchant my Boat also suffered some engine problems that meant we were unable to go at flank speed, at one point my attack periscope wasn't zooming so I was using the observation scope at 4.5x zoom. PITA.

U-52 Type VIIB
Patrol 4. A real pain in the backside because I suffered around 10 CTDs while trying to prosecute a convoy at Grid CF33. Basically I could get into position and for what felt like the first 7 times there was a juicy Southampton Class tub sat in the middle, which I have duly sunk 7 times or so now... However before I could escape to safety CTD. The penultimate time before the one that is now in this report was my most successful attempt - 2 large cargoes, 1 ore carrier and a black swan. 'twas a shame!

Did another run through the English channel and it went rather smoothly, even got my first Warship.

Guys, how do you get this statistics? Do I have to install a mod? I play the vanilla SH3 and I never get such detailed statistics. :down:
