Ok, we get it. Really. Sea is big. Sea is dangerous. Sea makes people seasick.

Destroyed by allied warplanes. Not even enough time to crash dive.

Back in my bunk, changing my under wear.

Attempting a night surface attack on a Convoy got a sonar bearing on the mass of ships, fired a spread of eels, blindly. Then I saw this. Black swan, about 300-400m away. Nobody saw anything, and we ran away, on the surface.

Yeah, especially when you think you have about 1500m more space than you actually have!

U-Boot Location & tracking map
 
For all to use if you want.

We have an interactive map that will allow you to post your location and tracks from grid to grid. The Devils of the Deep Flotilla uses it to track their U-Boots on patrol. You can also post patrol notes to the map.

All subsim forum members can use it if they want.

Click the link under my signatore to go to the Devils HQ and then to U-Boot Tracking. :salute:
