1 . Nice patrol

2. About RMM: By looking at the screenshots of the RMM , it is the old passenger ship. (there is a mod for that in the download section).

To set things straight add to the EnglishNames.cfg file of the

Great orders :D Feels a lot like something that I could have read from Dönitz's war diaries (when there are orders to individual U-boats as appendixes)

Scott Von Ainz (well at least captain of the boat still after accidentally sinking a Hipper class) about to head out on Patrol #18 (for the second time due to a CTD when i docked at Brest on last Patrol 18).
