Recieved your latest patrol report. Need we remind you that there is a reason it's called the ENGLISH Channel? Secondly, the gun we have issued to your boat is for sinking small ships, or for finishing off ships that are close to sinking anyway. Please try to refrain from wasting ammunition. The stuff doesn't grow on trees, you know. Don't make me take away your gun, or even your boat.

With love,

Onkel Karl

:O:


Oh, and WELCOME ABOARD! :sunny:

Liebe Onkel Karl:

Please take it away from me! My first patrol I managed only to fire off a few rounds to finish off a wounded merchant, the rest of the time the weather didn't allow for it.

But as an aside: Surely shells are cheaper than torpedoes, ja?

Of course being English I forget that I can't just willy nilly sail through the English Channel. As the German's so lovingly call us Brits: Insel Afen. (Island Monkeys) one can sometimes forget that one is fighting on the "wrong" side so to speak.

gazpode: Thank you, noted and I will give it a try and see if it works.

I look forward to boring you all with wonderful escapades of my idiotic Captaincy errors (like damaging the hull substantially on my first patrol while waiting for the war to start to see just how deep she'll go...) and completely unblooded crew.

:rotfl2: :rock:

I often tell the story of how I died from being too close to a tanker I was shelling, and it exploded. This was in the Artillery class at the Academy. :dead:

Well, made it to Feb. 1941, and got pasted off Gibralter. 5 DDs taking turns on us, and the damage got to be too much.

So the crew of the Seawolf is no more. :arrgh!: A woderful illustrious career, but in the end, they got us.

In this career my PC has decided to cooperate or that looks like so far.

hey von just a question, why do you shoot down air planes? Do you have it modded so your guys are better shots, or are you just a god at shooting them down? I woulda just crash dove like they did IRL, unless I detected them on the attack run, then I would shot at it, then as it made away I would dive (like they did IRL.)

I shooted them down because they were of the Swordfish type.
It is the only type my flak gunners can shoot down.
Check the grid - AN14 - and the date , they couldn't be anything else.
In this patrol , those aircafts didn't appear all together but in pairs or one at a time, so it was tempting.
They move pretty slow.

Later in the war I crash dive as well.
I haven't modded anything concerning the flak gunners , standard GWX.

andwii 12-19-11 03:28 PM

hum I actually haven't seen one of them before, I will try going there at the date.

The US battleship was sunk after direct Bdu order (roll a dice decision)

http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/4121/nevadaclassbb.jpg

Upon return to Wilhelmshaven the KTB of U-64 was manipulated by the OKM. Pages were torn away , entries were removed and others were entered. No evidence was left showing that the battleship had been torpedoed. The men were sworn to secrecy and given special rewards as well.
On the other hand the US Navy announced the loss one of its battleships due to still unknown reason , probaly an internal explosion.

(My version of WW II :D)
