Convoy battle. Convoy on course 041, making 7 knots.
6 approaches (3 of which failed).
3 ships sunk for 23.773 GRT.

One aircraft alarm in BF54.

Docked at Lorient on 25.mar.41, and awaited the damaged U103 until 17.apr.41.
Fine dining is in order this time out.

Congrats to U65 for her daring penetration of The Irish Sea.
U552 on her successes in spite of extremely difficult and dangerouse times, and conditions.
U336 on sinking HMS Nelson.

U39's history to date:
7 war patrols.
18 ships sunk for 97.431 GRT.

Note: Had a nice long and detailed report, which got lost by the server.
Thus the shortened version above.

Impressive, as usual!

U-552, patrol 5, report 1
 
Leutnant. z.s. Alfons Dietzmann
U-552, VIIC
11. Flotille, Bergen
Orders: Patrol CG11

1.6.1943
1724 AN24 cloudy, 8 9 km, 6 m/s. Leaving Bergen. The morale of the crewmen seems to be a bit shaky. Bad news from every front and now even in the U-boat front. Rumours say that tens of boats were lost last month. There are new boats and promising crews and commanders coming to replace them, like Hessler's U-65, but it doesn't look too good right now.

Thankfully U-39 has returned safely and U-103 wreaked havoc on a convoy and U-123 in a harbor raid. U-123 almost got destroyed by a mine, but they managed to repair the boat, and in a depth of 245 meters! Now those guys should send the steel workers who built that type IXB a bottle of champagne as a thank you for excellent work!

BdUs new orders tell us that we should fight aircraft on the surface if we would lose a contact with a convoy by submerging, or if there is any doubt we cant dive to 80 meters before the airplanes are on us. He promises four-barrelled Flak guns, homing torpedoes and a new type of radar are becoming available soon. But we dont have any of these now and our patrolling grid and the route to it is covered by airplanes and destroyer's that will know where we are, before we have any idea of their presence.

3.6.1943
0913 AF78 clear, 15 16 km, 15 m/s. Two one-engined airplanes sighted coming straight at us, bearing 160, range 5 6 km. Shooting with all guns from long range. Crash dive and hard turn towards the enemy. At 0916 hours airplane engines heard clearly inside the boat, then two explosions. One farther away, one close enough to shake the boat. No damage, but we did have slight trouble getting the boat to respond to controls.
2225 AF78 cloudy, 8 9 km, 15 m/s. Two small freighters sighted. Course 70, speed 5 knots. Our radar worked so badly, that in the end the course was estimated by sighting bearings. Submerged in perfect position. Impact pistols used because of the rough seas. Depth 3 meters. A 2000 BRT steamer sunk by 2347 with a TIII G7e and a 2000 BRT freighter sunk by 2353 with a TIII G7e. 10 torpedoes left. We don't carry external torpedoes anymore, because BdU thinks the external carriages have leaked during depth charge explosions, causing uncontrollable flooding.

0507 AF78 clear, 15 16 km, 7 m/s. Metox warning. Dived, nothing heard. Continuing towards our grid.

Troubles
 
6th June 1942. Sector CA28, 40km from New York.
I hunted down some juicy tankers, and one ceramic-type ocean liner. He just hit the bottom, when I saw a inbound convoy. Estimated course 295 deg. I see one leading escort, and two escorts on sides. After 10 min. I can recognize them. It's A&B DD as leader and old, ex American, four pipes DD's on sides. It's stupidity to attack a counvoy on this shallow waters. On the other hand... I never was too smart :88). The plan is simple: Two torpedos (just to be sure) to large tanker, one to modern tanker, and one to leading escort. Magnetic pistols set, depth also. Two TIII G7e, and two TII G7e torpedos ready to action. There's only lack of speed parameter in TDC. Because of big distance I can't estimate it precise enough. Once it's 8,5kt, and 9 kt other time. If I want to have torpedos hitting targets simultaneously I need to fire to large tanker first, then after ~one minute to modern tanker, and after another 1 min. 15' to leading escort. I don't have much time to enter speed parameter into TDC. 8,5 kt looks quite possible for me. Time to fire torpedo. First aiming point is last mast of large tanker. Shooting distance 4500m. FIRE TWO! FIRE THREE! Second aiming point is between last mast and funnel of Modern tanker, but I need to remember about corrections in distance, and wait some time to synchronize hits. NOW! FIRE FOUR! Last aiming point, first funnel of leading A&B destroyer. Same as previous: distance check, and wait to synchronize hits. Before shoot I double-check the speed... 8,5kt. SET! NOW! FIRE ONE! All eels are on the way. Now, run away from here. 200rpm both engines, turn 90 deg right, and prey. But we have no luck this time...
-Destroyer turning towards us!- Hydro says.
-Sh*t! Sh*t!! Sh*t!!! Sh*t!!!!!!!!
PING!......PING!......PING!.....PING!....PING!...P ING!..PING!.PING!PING!PING!PING!
A large torpedo detonation between pings couldn't drown this terrible sound. We're sitting duck. 13m to surface 10m to bottom. First DC series isn't very accurate, but after a while two DDs are pinging me, and the third vessel is listening by his hydrophone. If I want to survive this I have to reduce the number of persecutors. So... periscope up! It takes some time before the head of periscope touches the surface, but when it does... The only thing I see is water boiling around me. Boiling from hitting bullets! Periscope down! Immediately! But in a blink of an eye, before I lost a visual I saw old four pipe DD dead stop, listening us probably.
-Flank ahead! Hard starboard!- I turned my boat 30 deg right. Before turn end, I set stern torpedo: 0kts, straight run.
-FIRE!- I did this in last second because in next one some destroyer rammed us.
-Both periscopes destroyed! All antennas destroyed! All the bridge destroyed! Both flak guns destroyed! Board gun destroyed. Hydrophone, Radio, Sonar, Radar destroyed! Hull badly damaged! Hydro- and Radioman are dead!- Screams chef engineer. Just after he finished his monologue we've heard stern torpedo detonation.
-One less!- But our situation is helpless. I'm not dead yet, but now it's a matter of time. He will return.
-All leakages sealed!- Says CE
-Silence on deck!- I know, that I can hear a destroyer by my ears a couple seconds before he reaches me. -All stop!
Without my hydrophone, and periscope this single DD scares me to death.
PING...PING...PING...PING...PING...PING...PING...P ING...PING...PING...PING...PING...
All the time, without break, continuous terrifying sound.
PING...PING...PING...PING...PING...PING...PING...P ING...PING...PING...PING...PING...
I want to hide myself, lie on the floor, but there's nowhere to hide. Nobody breaths... Now when I'm blind and deaf my imagination sets me images of destroyer's bow cutting my command room. Images are so convenient, that I'm pretty sure that nothing can help us. I'm expecting a hit in a second... next second... next second... next second... next second... next second... next second...
Then I hear something else, something else except pings.
-DD's propellers larboard! Flank ahead, hard larboard!- Boat jumped submissively like a pike! -C'mon!!!!!!
Destroyer propeller is very loud now -Prepare for collision!- I shout, but... Destroyer passed, and instead of collision we hear DC explosion. ONE, TWO, THREE... Boat is shaking nervously after this third explosion, but holds still in one peace. No leakings! There is a hope for us. I look at the map of area. There it is. 20 km north of us, small bay... to wide and to narrow to let destroyer to continue its attacks. To small to use ASDIC... Perfect for us.
I spear You next 6 hours of real time evading destroyer and some vessel, while trying to reach our promised bay... Anyway, finally DD hit into a ground trying to ram us. We enter (Hewlett Bay I think) submerged, and wait there all the day under water. This is how I looked:

http://img827.imageshack.us/img827/4...1213340265.jpg

Uploaded with ImageShack.us

I order to surface few minutes past midnight. I was so happy so I could scream about it, but I couldn't because of destroyer not far from us. He stuck on ground, but his guns doesn't seem to be damaged. I don't see any other units nearby. I decide to escape the same way I came here. People aren't wiling to go down, but... They don't dare to disobey an order... Yet. We hit the ground couple times , but nothing serious happens. After a rest of the night, and all the next day spend on silence run, on periscope depth I was sure that we're safe, so an hour after sunset I order to surface the boat. Well... I order to surface remainings of u-boot. I spend the night circling around and recharging batteries. I have two torpedos left.

Should I finish a patrol and return base, or go back there and take my revenge...

What would be Your decision mates?

Gerald 06-09-11 07:20 AM

Avoiding shallow water, is my hypothesis purely spontaneous, there are convoys of much safer water, remove the single ship in shallow water is okay, as long as you have an eye on the surroundings....and good luck, in your mission :up:

Osmium Steele 06-09-11 07:21 AM

If the uzo still works, stationary targets are simple, and safe, to hit from max torpedo range at midnight. :arrgh!:

Kermit the Frog 06-09-11 07:25 AM

UZO full operational :)

VONHARRIS 06-09-11 07:25 AM

Kermit the frog

With that damage on your sub and without sonar and radio you are doomed. The only choice you have is go back avoiding any contact.

Good luck.

Well BdU might say: "Sink 'em all!", but I would call it a day. 'twas great reading this report, lots of nervecracking tension here. Congratulations on surviving :arrgh!:

Osmium Steele 06-09-11 09:23 AM

Assigned to patrol just NW of San Juan Puerto Rico.

No joy in assigned oparea so... Hrm, can I raid San Juan? Let's find out.

Weather check: Heavy precip, visibility poor, 13m/s winds. Perfect! :oops:

Ok, so not so perfect, but you know what they say, "If you don't like the weather in (insert city here), stick around an hour, it'll change."

WRONG!! FIVE DAYS later and I'm sure I just saw Noah and his ark float by. Hurricane season, BAH! Sank the Somers class DD and trawler patrolling north of the harbor mouth to shake off the rust.

My chart notes the Mona Passage as a possible convoy route, so we head west of Puerto Rico and listen. Of course, the weather clears though the sea state remains very rough. Reduced a small merchant to flaming wreckage, but where's my convoy?

Sure enough, an unescorted two ship convoy, followed two days later by another. Followed four days later by an eight ship convoy with two escorts. Made three attack runs in just over a twenty-four hour period.

Totals: 11 ships sunk

2 warships
2 tankers
1 whaling factory ship
6 cargo (including 2 ore carriers)

Just over 64,000 tons of allied shipping.

Returning to Lorient with a single T-1 in tube #5.

I think I like the Mona Passage...

Other comments; Can't recall any word from U-123. U552 continues to do well against the enemy whereas U-103 now has a new commander and my friend from that vessel is now in U505. Hopefully they built her as well as they did some of the other boats.
