Well, I'm playing with the Victory Mod enabled for a bit of variety. Due to the high renown value of warships and the sad fact that I don't use any realism mods and play at 0% I'm the coolest commander in the Kreigsmarine!
It was 1940 and I purchased a souped up IX-B and sailed from Kiel. Germany had taken everything up the eastern coast and I was to patrol AN--(somewhere off the cost between Hartlepool and Scapa Flow). I received a message from BdU informing me that the Royal Navy was relocating to Lock Ewe from Scapa Flow. I immediately sailed to Loch Ewe and snuck in, I sunk their moored Light Cruiser, their docked Fleet Carrier (their 2 largest ships) as well as 2 moored destroyers and 3 more that were steaming towards the wrecks to pick up survivors, I also sunk an Armed Trawler that was shadowing me. I ran out of torps and left, surfacing at a safe distance to resupply with my external reserves. The Brits had but 2 or 3 more destroyers left at Ewe so I decided to return to my partol on the other side of the isles. I was harrased by many swordfish and a few hurricanes. I downed 12 aircraft from my 2 dual flackwierzing(spelling). Sailed without a hitch, reached my new base of Lorient.
Not bad for a maiden voyage in my new uboat! :arrgh!:

Spent a week or so there at parties and receptions for my promotion and awarding of Knights Cross with Golden Oak Leaves Swords and Diamonds, as well as my uboat war badge and front clasp. (this was my 13th partol iirc, something between 13 and 15). I was promoted to Lieutenant (spelling) and dished out war badges to every member of the crew except for 1 new lowly sailor who I simply didn't have a medal for. I promoted around 4 men after that.

Sailed up to Loch Ewe due to the capture of that base during one of my parties. I've missed Dunkirk, the allied evacuation and every other important event but catching what's left of the Home Fleet at Ewe.

Looks like its just a matter of patrol off of Iceland for now on. I'll load up my other campaigns set in the other parts of the world once this becomes boring.

After my first attempt returning to the Atlantic after 1yr+ went awry due to a technical fault (:oops:forgot deleting a save deletes everything after:doh:) U-52 under it's Kaleun Willi Brandt set off for it's first war patrol. Quite a voyage, the crew were happy to be home after nearly 2months sailing, across to Danzig and then all the way around the British Isles to the Western Approaches with a good chunk of renown gathering SE of Iceland:arrgh!: .

You're too kind. I'm more like an amateur really; I did this in about one hour with a free paint program.

You're right Steve. Point taken.:salute: From now on, when I spot English ships, rather than jeer at them I'll be sure to shower them with gifts. Long, cylindrical gifts.

Well, using the VMod my latest patrol (my last) had me off the coast of Newfoundland in the strait between NFLD and Labrador. I ran into a tug which was armed with 3 flaks an 88cm and 1 rack of charges. It stood still after shooting me so I gave it an eel (weather demanded it). While sailing on and repairing my damages I hit a subnet that ran between NFLD and Labrador (a large distance for a net) and was thus killed. That was just so preposterous I restarted that patrol.:har:

In fact according to SH3 Commander U-boat damaged (H.I. 98.49%)
Machine gun fire from a PBY Catalina during crash diving.

I would prefer the potatoes though , fresh provisions for the rest of my patrol! :DL

Eschem Schnuz's Letters, 29th Flotilla
Hi y'all. First time poster.

Have been into subsims off and on since the "Aces of the Deep" days, though i have yet to survive a single campaign, EVER!
Waited two years to purchase SH2, but after i finally did, i couldn't bring myself to play the game! :damn:
Originally resumed interest with SH5, but when my machine couldn't play it, i "downgraded" to SH3 and SH4 instead.
Fingers crossed, my ultimate objective will be to complete a single SH career campaign, alive. :salute:

As with most people i'm guessing, the movie "Das Boot" (the Director's Cut & Uncut versions) was my entry into the world of the U-Boat.
I have read the book (English translation), and am hoping to worm my way thru Lawrence Paterson's catalog of flotilla records.

Anyway, here goes...

Report from U-87 Type VIIB, 29th Flotilla, returning from Patrol 1.
Realism @ 50%, original game specs.
8-day cruise. Hull got a bit of a nick, but that's about it.
Medals all around!
Over and out.

GoDeep 09-15-11 05:55 AM

U-551, Patrol 14
May 10, 1941.
Left Lorient to patrol grid square DT29.
Crossed Bay of Biscay without incident.

May 14
Position: CG13
3:17: Merchant on hydrophones, approaching. Set course to intercept.

3:43: Visual on contact, small freighter.

3:52: Contact is a tramp steamer, flying British flag. Appears to be armed. Set up for submerged attack.

4:01: Final check on target. ID confirmed. Single torpedo fired below keel.

4:02: Torpedo impact, multiple secondary explosions.

4:07: Ship sunk, tramp steamer, 1964 BRT

8:59: Contact report, large enemy convoy, grid square CG12, course SSO, 8 knots. Set course to intercept, because it's just next door.

10:15: Convoy in sight. Weather is very calm and sea is almost oily. Difficult to get close on the surface for a good look. At least 20 merchants and hydrophone check reveals a minimum of 5 escorts. Radioed BDU with contact report. Decide to submerge in front of convoy and get in attack position, even though I overshot their projected course. Have to dive to avoid detection.

10:42: I'm in luck, the convoy zigged and is now coming almost directly for my position. Centre column should pass just in front of my boat!

10:51: Picked out three targets: medium merchant, large tanker and a coastal freighter for the stern tube. Convoy is travelling at 8 knots, timing will be tight!

10:57 All torpedoes fired! Diving below convoy to avoid counter attack. Escorts all passed wide, no one within 2500 metres.

10:59: Three out of five torpedoes hit. Stern tube missed because target veered and one torpedo on the medium freighter missed.

11:02: Tanker exploded in huge fireball. Medium freighter sinks!
2 ships sunk: medium freighter, 4707 BRT
Large tanker: 9677 BRT

14:01: Convoy has disappeared from view. All tubes reloaded, surfaced, ready to continue attack. Course plotted along course of convoy.

17:30: Sound check reveals no sign of convoy.

18:30: Sound check still reveals no sign of convoy.

19:00 Beginning search pattern along convoy course at high speed. Visibility excellent.

May 15
03:00: Still no sign of convoy.

09:15: Contact report, convoy in CG41, heading SO, speed 8.
This is the convoy I was tracking. They are further away than expected. Intercepting.

14:30: Convoy in sight! Sea still flat, no wind, good visibility.

15:54: Spotted by rear escort. Shells fired. Forced to dive. No damage. No depth charges.

16:30: Surfaced. Convoy has altered course to SW. Racing along port side to catch up. Keeping convoy at edge of visibility.

17:10: Spotted by port side lead escort. No shells, it just comes our way. Steering 90 true to give small aspect. Ahead flank. Darkness is setting in. Convoy appears to have changed course to SE again.

17:20: Racing at flank speed, course SE. Still giving small aspect to destroyer. Destroyer continues due east. It does not see us.

18:00: Made a slow, sweeping turn at high speed to come to course SW, cutting across convoy path. Escort is returning to convoy. She has lost us.

19:00: In front of convoy, reasonable attack position.

20:30: Convoy has changed course back to SW. This has improved my attack position. Was hoping this would happen.

20:55: Convoy getting too close for comfort. Diving to PD. Engage silent running. Battle stations!

21:12: Selected two targets, one munition ship, one large freighter. Excellent firing solution on both.

21:16: Torpedoes away, timed for near simultaneous impact. Diving, change course to N.

21:18: Four torpedoes hit and exploded. Hearing multiple explosions, probably the munition ship. (It was, checked with external cam).

21:19: Pinging. Apparently an escort snuck up to us in our baffles. Not detected. Continuing slow dive.

21:20: Escort dropped random charges. Unfortunately, one on our head. As soon as I heard the splashes, went to flank. Depth was only 35 metres. Radio room and command room damaged, taking on water. Hydrophone and radio damaged. Both periscopes destroyed, flak destroyed, deck gun destroyed. (Amazing how they can tell from the inside, isn't it?). Secure from silent running to stop flooding.

21:22: Repair and screw noises have attracted more attention. Two escorts overhead. Flooding almost under control. Depth 120.

21:24: Flooding stopped. Ordered silent running. Course NE. Depth 170.

21:25: Detected by ASDIC. Multiple splashes. Going deeper, course 345, flank ahead.

21:26: No damage, return to silent running. Depth 190. Sound man reports breaking bulkheads and explosions from hit merchants.
Ships sunk: munition ship, 7062 BRT, large freighter, 8576 BRT.

21:40: Evaded multiple attacks. No further damage. Course N. Depth 200. Silent running, 50 rpm.

21:50: No more attacks for 10 minutes. One escort appears to be moving off. One circling overhead.

22:10: No more attacks, final escort appears to have given up, heading back towards convoy at high speed.

23:00: Convoy noises fading to SW.

May 16.
01:00: No contacts on hydrophone. Secure from silent running. Rise to 30 metres for sound check.

01:30: Sound check reveals no noises. Baffles also clean. Surfacing without being able to do a periscope sweep is an uneasy feeling.

02:00 Surveyed damage in the darkness. With no periscopes, no flak, barely operational deck gun, I decide to head back to Lorient. Patrol 14 is over.

Gedis 09-15-11 03:18 PM

Hello captains,

it was 1941 october 12th when i sailed with my uberuntersieboot Type 9B. Now it's 20th or 21st day, was reiding gibraltar i choosed and sank all the juicy targets there, just left to escape...
So i'm almost 2 km from the naval base, ~7AM in the morning, out of a sudden, without pinging, corvette runs over me dropping depthcharges (let's call them DC in short).
I'm 15 meters bellow, moving slowly and silently, at 1 knot...
After first batch of DCs she turns for another run, but this time pinging me. This time it manages to RAM my 20mm flak gun while i'm at 15 meters depth...
It seems i'll evade it, since she's dropping DCs close but not close enough.
And then destroyer joined into the pursuit, after 3rd pass, he DESTROYED my both diesel engines, both electric engines and forward batteries, the rest of the damage i repaired while pumping out water at harbour's sea bed at 41 meters! O.o (gibraltar isn't shallow after all...).
So i'm "repaired", can't move and at 41m bellow, i was waiting for another DC batch to sink me so i could load up the save file. And corvette drops DCs, destroys my conning tower and flak gun emplacements and i'm still alive, still can't move... I decided why not just sit there and see what happens, and what do you know... both destroyer and corvette just pining and passing over my head and not dropping DCs O.o
2 hours latter, comes 2nd destroyer for the help and he finally sank me.
If it wasn't for him, i had plans to sit there until night, surface and just finish the mission, but oh well...

I'm with alberich anti sonar coating, but late 1941 seems pretty harsh time for my harbour reids...

My latest commander, Walter Koch, died in a attack on a convoy near the British coast. he had six eels and got ahead of said convoy, waited till the convoy was on top of him, and unleashed the eels, out of five shots, 4 hit, no sinkings, and quickly dived to near the bottom to await the escorts attack, with the idea of sneaking off and letting the convoy by, surface, and head home.

well, the V class escort in nov 1939 found U-53 and sunk me with a few well placed depth charges. Obtained a Iron Cross (2nd class) after his death. I really was not expecting to loose Koch so soon, as I normally make it to at LEAST 1940. I may start my next one in nov 1939 so I can play later in the war hopefully and see now many men it takes to get though the war.
