Scharnhorst departs Wilhelmshaven on raiding mission to North Atlantic.

Results:
Returned to Wilhelmshaven 5 March 1940, having sunk a measly five ships for only 19,732 tons.

Verdammt weather horrendous in North Atlantic (what'd we expect for February, clear skies and sunny like Rio, Haha!). Hopefully we'll get another assignment soon; we were ordered to cease operations in the North Atlantic mid-patrol (fine with us...not like we were able to sight anything anyway!). There are rumors going around that a major operation is in the works...we shall see.

U-111 R Hessler Patrol no8
 
Following repairs etc, U111 was ready for Departure for Patrol #8 of Hessler's Distinguished career.

Orders: Patrol CF/CG Grid #96 (tbc)
Depatured: 26th Sep 1941
U-111 was loaded and victual'ed and made ready for sea, departing same day. On leaving the mouth of the river, another u-boat was sighted, a VIIC on her way back into Lorient after a succesful patrol.

28th Sept '41 (aprox)
A lone merchant was spotted in the distance by a sharp-eyed lookout. U-111 was turned toward and the distance quickly closed and a firing solution obtained. A 1' spread of 2 torpedoes were fired and the target was quickly sunk for an estimated 8,000 GrT.

30th Sept '41
A distant warship was spotted appearing out of the darkness at around 8km. Before long, more ships were identified which then were then positively ID'd as a large convoy.

Soon it was also discovered that we were heading in the same direction as the convoy. Flank speed was ordered, and the U-boat's heading changed so that we could overtake the convoy, but still maintain sufficient contact to tell the location of them.

Around 4am ideal firing position was obtained.

As the convoy began to appear, it was identified that within this convoy, there was a Southampton Class! This was then made the main point of target, together with a Large Merchant.

At periscope depth the attack commenced and Four torpedoes were fired, two at the southampton and two at the large merchant. A pair of hit was registered on the Southampton and following a series of secondary explosions, was heard to be breaking up.

One torpedo oblitarated a small steamer which ran into one of the torpedoes intended for the Lg Merchant, with the detonating on the merchant's stern, rendering her D.i.W.

U-111 submerged even further to a depth of around 120m and reloaded her tubes. She then ascended back upto periscope depth before firing again, this time completing the Job on the Lg merchant.

With her tubes now empty, after firing at a medium cargo, and having 1 torpedo miss and another detonate on a steamer, U-111 descended towards the depths again.

A brief encounter with enemy escort's followed which managed to lock-on using ASDIC, but thier attacks were although accurate, were "shook off"

Shortly after dawn, U-111 re-surfaced as the convoy & escort's had left the area, with three kills to her name; A Lg Merchant (6,000 GrT), A Coastal Steamer (1800 GrT), and most valuably, a Southampton Class cruiser @ around 10,000 GrT.

(around lunchtime on Sept 30th '41) U-111 is now on a southerly course, heading towards the assigned patrol grid of CF/CG96.

Howard313 10-25-11 06:52 PM

U-49 here, Started a new campaign recently.

Gotta love the early years, en-route to my patrol sector of BE96 I decided to take the dreaded English Channel to save gas, plan is working out pretty good so far, the fishing is rich.

http://img257.imageshack.us/img257/2...trolreport.jpg

http://img513.imageshack.us/img513/7...rolreport2.jpg

I expect to run out of ammunition before I can even make it to my patrol sector.

Something funny happened in this particular patrol, I had just entered the Channel and the weather was terrible, huge waves heavy rain, and fog thicker than peanut butter. I wanted to slip by the Dovor port on the surface that night, using the bad weather to my advantage. I gave the order for ahead flank and we were booking it, I wanted to get well away from the port before sunrise. After about an hour, my men inform me of a ship emerging from the fog.....it was a destroyer :o

I quickly gave the order to dive and rigged for silent running but by the time I issued those orders he was well within 100m, I thought I was dead.

He passed right by me on the surface, starboard-to-starboard, and quickly disappeared in the fog almost as quickly as he came. He never came back, I guess the weather was a blessing in disguise. (Wish I could've nabbed a picture of it for you guys but it was over almost as soon as it happened)

Yeah I was too lazy to write everything down so you get copy and paste images out of the game...sue me. :smug:
