"Looks like im going to have to be more careful while over by the area Gibraltar, our took a pretty huge amount of damage from air cover which happened right as we surfaced to attack a ship with I had shot 3 tubes at (using diffrent depths) and they all duded. After taking this major damage and having low ell counts (all gone except externals) we made the decision to head back to base instead of continuing the patrol. As of late we have had bad luck with U-65."
