U-52 back in Kiel after a very short patrol, weather foul for the entire patrol. Expended all torpedoes for a good tonnage including a resurrected HMS Nelson, the Royal Navy must have the best salvage teams in the world to get getting her off the bottom and repaired in days all the time:D

Bad luck!
 
Karl Werner, 2. October: I'm back in Kiel after my second patrol with U-6 (IIA). High visibility and good weather, but not much have happened. No ships sunk. Almost got a large merchant at midnight, but it travelled too fast so I couldn't keep up with it for long. I didn't hit it. Moving over to Wilhelmshaven as soon as possible because it is closer to my patrol areas. Deciding wether to get a type VIIB or to wait for a type VIIC to become availible. I think I'll go for the VIIB.

Watch out Kretchmer & co, I'm coming for you very soon!:arrgh!:

Having eaten well and put one part of the family to bed Kapitanleutnant Brandt is arriving at U-52 for his 5th war patrol:

Eschem Schnuz's Letters, 29th Flotilla
 
Dear Uncle Karl,

I honestly don't know what to say.
I got tired of diving from enemy aircraft, so I let loose the double double-barrels and "let them 'ave it" this time round.

In all, we shot 16 planes down. :up:
I also buried 4 of my crew at sea. :wah:
Was it worth it? You tell me. :nope:

U-87 Type VIIB, 29th Flotilla reporting from Patrol 17.
Realism @ 50%, original game specs.
5-day cruise. All things considered, the boat is fine.
Promotions and medals all around, but right now I don't really feel like celebrating. :cry:

Over and out.

Hey VonHarris, I installed the MFM and ran into one of these on my first MFM patrol. Wounded it with a torp and surfaced at 1000m to finish her off... got blasted for my troubles. Luckily she was a terrible shot and due to the damage I'd already inflicted with the torp I acually won the gunbattle (!) but I ran into aircraft later in the patrol and buckled whilst crashdiving at 55m due to the weakened hull. Career over.

I don't think it was a Q01B, though I can't remember 100%.

edit: It must have been a Q01B - I just had a look and it's the only "Qxxx" in the MFM. :oops:

Young Upstart Hans Gruber steers U-23 through the canal on a five day shakedown cruise in August '39. Full of hope for a long career, he has heard the rumblings of war like everyone else. For now though, just for now, he's content to simply be at sea again.... Now if he can just remember how to minimize his GUI for snapshots.

I surfaced even closer at 500m and took heavy damage. I finished her off with a second torpedo. Her gunner found the range with the first shot!

U-52 back from a short patrol, hope to make it out of port again to take part in operations up north.

Dear Leutnant Rickma...ahem, I mean Gruber, I have two words for you: NumLock and Delete.

WWII44 09-22-11 02:38 PM

The HMS Nelson lies at the bottom of Gibraltar. she took five torpedoes to sink we skedaddled as soon as we fire our bow tubes, three torps from the bow tubes hit her(Tube 1 had one of those god awful G7e torpedoes that blew up half way to the target:x) the as we slipped away we let lose the stern tubes and another two hits. Just as we were at the mouth of Gibraltar our sonar man confirmed we sank the Nelson. Know we are in lorient readying U-142 AKA Der Grun Krake(The Green Octopus) for her fourth Patrol(Our kaleun has his sites set on scapa flow).
