An update to my second patrol: As I watched the neutral tanker sail by I started getting hydrophone reports of a merchant off my port beam. With no time to turn around I engaged emergency speed reverse and readied tube 5. The other merchant turned out to be a Granville type freighter flying a British flag. I hit her in the engine room, surfaced and finished her off with the deck gun. This brought my patrol tonnage to roughly 21,400 tons. I set a southwesterly course and less than an hour later my watch crew sighted another merchant. I turned toward her and sighted two more darkened ships, sailing one behind the other. It's a good thing I still have three torps in the bow tubes. Sometimes things just work out. This will be my first multi-ship attack so hopefully all will go well.

Proper intel and good luck favored me this patrol. Did the most daring thing a commander can do, snuck into the port of Gibraltar on the surface (all be it later in the day and during a storm) and waited for a clear shot. Snuck out undetected and docked at supply ship for fuel.

Not so bad to sink the hood :up:
How many torpedoes did you shoot at her before she sunk?

Took 6, was surprised thought it would take 8 or so, but 6 could have been overkill, I just fired everything loaded and got out of there lol.

Down under eating rice with the locals and getting banged up on ever patrol. Last patrol mid July 1944 wiped out a small convoy at a cost, bridge crew and AA crew were all killed. I hear Hideki Tojo is going to pin medals on my crew.

We hit a large cargo ship with 2 fish, calm seas, magnetic fuses. Two loud explosions on target bearing and the ship foundered almost immeditaely. A short time later, my weapons officers claims she's a goner, then... ...nothing. She sat there, decks awash for almost 24 hours!!

Her crew abandoned her, and she bobbed about in over 1000 meters of open ocean!

It wasn't until we picked up a couple of her crewmen that we found out she was filled to the rails with timber!

No way she was going under without wasting a couple for eels on her. :yeah:

matti95 03-26-12 02:13 PM

VONHARRIS, Jonny: Thank You! :salute:
It's allways a nervous moment when you blow ballast but the boat just keep sinking.

Jonny 03-26-12 02:44 PM

Changed UBoats, now commanding U46. Start of war, in AN 87 san a partrol craft with 94% realism plus Realism V16B1-Patch-Kit, using it for the first time. Found it very hard, but rewarding. Can't manual target very weels to i have my weapon officer to help! substained heavy damage in the bow torpedo rooms! Nearly flooded, Managed to repair in 7 hours and reload all fish used. Sanka french merhant on the way back. 2016 T to finsh partrol on! After sinking the merchant U46 sent a status report and was ordered home and to abandon partrol for later date!

In U-97 on my 20th patrol, August 1941 (looking forward to transferring to Norway in '42, hopefully).

Decided to attack a lightly escorted convoy off the north of Ireland in 40 meter water. Sink a light tanker and two coastal merchants, and cripple a C2. A destroyer and a corvette decide to do something about that.

They started pinging away like mad, and in shallow water I choose a bold option: hiding under the C2 that is dead in the water. Which really seems to confuse the escorts. The destroyer, realizing it is on a collision course, slows down - just as she drops depth charges. Blew her own depth-charge racks off, which I've never seen before.

So I figure it's a good time to make a quiet escape. I come up to periscope depth keeping the C2 between me and the corvette. And I put my last torpedo into the C2, the noises of her sinking apparently ruining the corvette's attempts to locate me.

Currently making good my escape, as the destroyer and corvette have given up and returned to the convoy, and feeling very lucky.

Lesson learned, TC of 1 is a very very hard to do thing with out getting bored. Returned to supply ship early, unsure of how much damage sustained when a torpedo boat caught us off guard.
