I was enjoying a few sojourns in a Type IIA as a nice change of pace from my VIIC.

That was until I set out on my 4th patrol and all 5 torpedoes were duds. ALL 5! Grrrraaaagh! :damn:

In frustration I requested a transfer to the surface fleet and Admiral Raeder, recognising my fine leadership qualities, gave me command of the Graf Spee. :salute:

Oh destroyers? Where are you? Not scared of you any more! :arrgh!:

Bwahahahahaha!

Oberleutnant z. S. Erwin Wulf commanding U-66.

The boys at Lorient got the U-66 put back together again, along with a fresh coat of paint with the latest camo pattern. Needless to say the Chief has went over her with a fine toothed comb. Even he is impressed with the workmanship. Pulled a good patrol this time, sitting off of Africa. Lots of juicy cargo ships coming out of Freetown. Got a few bullet holes and dings in her this time. Seems Chief thinks the damage is light compared to the usual, even acceptable.

Can you post a screenshot of your U-66?
Nice patrol.
You seem to have found a way to fight planes.
I avoid to do so unless absolutely neccesary.

Not bad for a new boat with mostly inexperienced crew. Couldn't help Bismarck but I bet those New Zealanders will miss their cruiser.

The Chief is in good spirits. No damage to the U-66 this time. I told him to just wait until the weather is good and the RAF is back out in force.:arrgh!:

It seems a couple of pictures were taken of the U-66 as she was pulling in to Lorient after her last successful patrol. Wouldn't be surprised to see these show up in some propaganda.

With only needing a refuel and rearm, I think she can be back out to sea in a couple of days, but the Chief wants the diesels looked over thoroughly, seems they ingested a large amount of water in the 5-10m seas we've been in for nearly the entire patrol.

Edit: Seems BdU won't listen this time. A staff position there awaits me. I told the men to take good care of the U-66, and to show the new commander, Leutnant z. S. Helmut Bornmann what a real u-boat crew is made of. 18 war patrols, 216 days at sea, 63 ships sunk, 52 merchants, 11 warships, 28 planes downed, 251089 GRT sent to the bottom.

After der Führer's death, as a crew we decided to get some revenge by invading Scapa Flow, sunk a fiji class, a troop transport and a few other ships. My men fought bravely and I was proud to serve with each and every one of them.

whats funny is its listed as 15 patrols because my game hates me. After I sunk the HMS Nelson in Girbalter my game CTDed (I saved though). Went back and it CTDed. I tried many times, restarted comp. Nothing worked so I basically made another campaign a little after that last mission under the same name. My actual stats are I lost 8 members of my crew. I feel so sorrowed that I had to let them die, stupid 9 hour long depth charging, happened once, then the second time I got shot at by a merchant killing the guy on the flak. I will say though he died for a reason, he helped bring that merchant down. I burryed him with full honors, as well as the other 7. It would been 10 but my medic worked fast.
