Have had no enemy contacts since leaving Willy.
With over 3/4 fuel remaining we are awaiting release from the campaign around Norway.

Instead there are more contact, and less aircraft

I felt obligated to maintain my patrol sector throughout the campaign, especialy in that situation, as a real boat would have. As a reward I ended up matching the tonnage of most boats involved there. Nothing. (Without GWX there nothing spetacular about Narvik. We aren't modded alike.)

U64 IXB. Patrol 1.
Current positionis AM31. With 5/8 fuel remaining (following The Norwegian Campaign), we are enroute to find, report, and engage North Atlantic commerce in the area of AM19.
1 merchant sunk for 2.343 GRT. 11 torpedoes remaining (9 fore and 2 aft).

Yes. We botched our first attack. Our second attack, several hours later, was succesful.

U64 IXB. 2. Flotilla. Patrol 1.

U64 has arrived home safely with all hands after completing her maiden war patrol.

Patrol dates from 29.MAR.40 to 21.MAJ.40.

After full participation in The Norwegian Campaign without successes, U64's patrol was extended to The North Atlantic shipping lanes, and eventualy, after persueing a convoy, on to AM53.

4 merchants were sunk for 20.172 GRT.

U64 participated in 2 convoy battles, sinking 2 merchants, and sunk an additional 2 merchants sailing independently.

31 May 40

Got word of the evacuation of Dunkirk so I headed down to the channel from my patrol grid of AN41. Seas were very rough as usual.

Submerged and tons (ha, get it, tons) of screw noises on the hydrophone. We tracked a convoy headed west towards Dover.

Managed to sink a Modern Tanker, Ore Carrier, and Granville. Wounded another Tanker (don't know how he kept going, was listing heavily in the rough seas) and a Liner after getting harassed by the DDs. Had to hide out by the wrecks of the guys I sunk, depth was only about 25m. Wish I could have sank those last two. Total of 23.5k tons.
