Yo Karl! :salute:

All right, that's it... no more German lessons! :timeout:

Dear Onkel Karl, :salute:

Something you should know: their warships spotted us from 8km... in the dark.
Bumped into a convoy, but had to hide instead. Couldn't catch up.
How come our radars suck? :down:

Thank you for the War Badge. This one has diamonds too, right?

Dear Onkel Karl, :salute:

I'm still confused by your most recent instructions, and even more baffled by your assessment of my last patrol. :06:
For Patrol 16, instructions read NULL Patrol Area. It also said to return to La Spezia.
Since i did not have authority to fully refit at Toulon, that's just what i did: return to La Spezia.
Now that i'm here, i get word that we've relocated our home base to Toulon. WTH? :-?

I've bein asinged to the IXB U-142, and my first patrol with her was a blood bath for the Tommies. A total of 69194 tons of british shiping lies on the bottom of the atlantic.

When starting from a base that isn't your home base you get a NULL patrol grid. You can sink anything you find and return to your base any time you want. The NULL patrol grid can be fixed with the SH3GEN programm.
For the base change you are just unlucky. It was supposed to happen at that time.

Mucho danke, Herr Grauewolf. :salute:

For the record, I'm just having a bit of fun with my "war diaries". So with the little idiosyncrasies in the game, I'm not too bothered by them. Except the part when I die, of course. :O:

You are welcome!
And surviving in the Med in 1943 is to congratulate.
Play the game in the way you like!
