Leutnant z. S. Robert Buck commanding U-154.

What an awful month. Found a convoy near the Azores, and managed to get inside and sink 2 tankers, but that was the ONLY good thing that happened. 2 weeks averaging maybe 4 knots we finally got SE of the Azores. The tommies seem to be able to spot our snorkels easily. 13Aug depth charge hit out of nowhere, she sank to 194 before we got her back under control. That was the bad hit out of no less than 6. Flak guns, attack periscope, radar antenna, radio antenna, and the flak platform are destroyed. We are beat from just trying to hold her together to get back home. We made it about a quarter of the way to our patrol grid before damages forced us to turn around. I'm beginning to wonder if we're not safer on the surface during the day when we can actually see what's coming at us. Oh well, 2.5 months to repair the U-154 the last time. Should be close this time. The crew deserve the time off after the job they just did.:salute:

Eschem Schnuz's Letters, 7th Flotilla
 
Dear Onkel Karl,

For starters, my apologies for the tone of my previous letter. I had no idea your end was being invaded.

Are the rumours true? Was Rommel behind the assassination attempt?
If so, why the heck was I in the Mediterranean in the first place?

Many thanks for mailing over the latest Akademie textbook "Schnorkeling 101".
Got a lot of practice in this patrol, as there was precious little to do, what with the weather and the enemy aircraft and all.

Realism @ 60%, original game specs.
Pressed the "Exit Patrol" button after 11 days.

Respectfully yours,
Eschem

Intercepting a large convoy in the Mid Atlantic. Lightly guarded, lots of nice targets, including what looks like an auxiliary cruiser...

Wasn't quick enough to take a screenshot, but I was in binocular view, and the Sunderland was headed right for me, switched out and it hit the bridge head on with a loud clang, then the death screen.:dead:

Next time will be a new war. I'm finally installing GWX3.:lurk:

almost didn't make it out alive this time. got to like 38% hull integrty, but I had some fun using a ship as cover while an enemy merchant shelled me, which in the end sunk the ship I was using as cover.

Sailor Steve
A very detailed report.
It looks like the ship's log.
Well done.

Late August 1942. Setting in the somewhat deeper water just outside Lock Ewe in my type VIIC debating whether to try my luck.:hmmm: I came up the West channel from AM52, sinking a large cargo on the way, and so far, have not been detected.
