All current careers lost, had to re-install SH3 from scratch due to some technical problems occurring between chair and keyboard. New careers to follow. Oh well.

A day of triumph for the Fatherland!

A job well done!:salute:

1 thing I learned from this... Persistence.
If you think you can't intercept it, try it anyway.

Weird that in the patrol after, the escaping from the destroyers was much more fun than sinking the Hood.:shifty:

Good work.

Successful evasions should always be satisfying.

Judging from the year I wasn't that surprised, but you can be proud of surviving that long.
Doubt I'll even reach 1942.

Have fun hunting in 1939 :)

GoDeep 08-30-11 08:05 AM

In my current career, I am busy with patrol 12, in a Type VII/C, U-551. I am puttering around 300 km west of Gibraltar in March 1941. The past week has been nothing but storm, but with good visibility. Despite the waves I have managed to sink 3 unescorted merchants, but nothing big.
During the daylight hours, I am frequently harassed by British planes who have so far failed to do much damage. One time I was extremely lucky as I surfaced just as a plane was passing over me. I did not see anything through the periscope but suddenly two bombs came crashing down, one on either side of the boat! A good reminder to do VERY good scans of the skies as well as the horizon before surfacing.

I chased down a convoy last night following a convoy report, but the high seas kept slowing me down and throwing me off course, causing me to arrive only roughly in the area on the time that I wanted. No convoy was sighted and the hydrophones are all quiet. I am proceeding along the convoy's estimated course, in the hopes of finding them, but so far nothing but empty seas... :wah:
