You're literally "boxed in". They'll keep you painted and wait for the merchant to sink on top of you.

If merchant is "dead" in water, wait them out. The AI is not smart enough to depth-charge alongside the "dead" merchant. But you're not out-running THAT hunting party.

How deep you have below keel?

IIRC, I was 60 meters deep, and the sea depth was 100. I couldn't avoid their active sonars ..... :wah:

I was gonna say to rig for silent run & dive below 130m. Hopefully find thermal layer but at that shallow depth maybe waiting it out before your "clean" air runs out might be close. You may have no other choice but to wait them out.

Kinda like waiting out a hail storm under an overpass. Run out too soon, and you're gonna get pelted!

Viel Glück.:Kaleun_Salute:

If it's not too late, and they can't depth charge you under there. Could you try an float just under the keel of the merchant (if it's not sinking yet) and hopefully get some topedos off at the destroyers, it would be a long shot (especially sense you can't see them) but if waiting it out doesn't work this could be a last ditch effort.

Now you've got them right where you want them!

In all seriousness, surviving this, even "winning" is possible.
Just have to remember, they must come to you. Not the other way around.

Patience...
Be calm, cool, and methodical.

No, for the good reason that I already surrendered ... :shifty:

But the scuttling of my U-Boot has been made by a calm, cool, and methodical crew. :yep: The Enigma machine didn't fall into the Allies' hands. :up:

Niume 01-31-17 07:27 AM

This ?

October 1940, off of the west of Ireland.

Letting the crew take turns viewing our latest sinking.

Timing told me it was going 11 knots. Refused to believe it for some reason. Set 1 torpedo for 10 knot assumed target speed. Hit near the aft end.

Of course needed another for a coup de grâce.
