Captain of U-21, a Type II/A in November 1939. Have had a few successful patrols. Of course in this little tub I only get a few torps but I think I am punching above my weight class. Have the IC 1st and 2nd class.

Look forward to getting a message from BdU that a Type VII is ready for me. :)

B.d.U. Assessment:

Another stellar war patrol by this seasoned commander and boat. The sinking of now the third aircraft carrier and a heavy cruiser, will inflict no doubt a heavy setback in the war efforts of the enemy and is of great strategic importance. His award with the Oak Leaves to the Knights Cross, was a mere consequence of his distinguished valour in battle. The vast experience of the commander will now best be utilized to bring up the new generation of Uboat commanders, as the command of the distinguished boat will be relinquished into the very capable hands of its XO, who himself was awarded with the Knights Cross after this war patrol.

February 1940. Going into my 7th or 8th patrol in U-21 (Type IIa). Have been very lucky. Sunk at least 1 ship on every patrol and 4th overall in tonnage. Have the Knights Cross with Oak Leaves after last patrol. Look forward to getting a bigger boat soon! :salute:

U-957 Update

Well... I recently experienced some "technical difficulties", as the laptop I was using to play Silent Hunter III started having some hardware issues...

So... I purchased and upgrade! MSI GE66 Raider, with an I7-10750H, 32GB of Memory, and a Geforce RTX 3070. Just transferred the backup of my Modded install of Silent Hunter III, as well as my Career files, and all seems to be working. Oh and sadly... No, the new hardware doesn't help SH3's load times... with all my installed mods the game still takes ~12m to load - and that's at the "best of times" aka Max Performance mode. It's smooth as silk when in-game though... :03:
