Kapitänleutnant Franz Tromller commanding U-96.

Well, that was a short one. Ran into a convoy just out of the Bay of Biscay. Did my damage and came home, after running into a small merchant while chasing the convoy to try and finish off a large merchant and an empire-type that I had damaged in my second attack run. Darn Black Swan frigates.

Eschem Schnuz's Letters, 33rd Flotilla
 
Dear Onkel Karl,

While I am somewhat perturbed at having to continue playing "musical u-boat bases", I must say it's good to be back on home soil.
Can't wait to return to my old stomping grounds in Dresden.
Nothing much to say about this outing other than that I got to put in a good yeoman's shift, patrolling between Iceland and the Faroes.

Respectfully yours,
Eschem

PS: As I had promised in my last letter - not a scratch.

Realism @ 70%, original game specs.
Pressed "Exit Patrol" button after 20 days.
RTD: 10
Nyan Cat Lives Used: 1
