@Gargamel
The Titanic is no joke
I have found a mod in the download section of subsim that adds the RMS Titanic in your ships
As far as the HMS Hood I have been in a similar situation and I did the same thing : Fired both stern tubes.

@desirableroasted
Same for you. The Big 3 funnel liner can be found in the Subsim download section
The patrol is NO joke.
I will the patrol sheet from within the game to prove it.
Edit : The summary patrol report sheet

I hope now that you can see it is NO joke
This patrol has happened once in all those years I have been playing SH3

Just a couple of kms away from Vigo port, approaching resupply ship...
Escorted by dolphins.

I took on another destroyer with the deck gun. Blew off her forward guns, a DC rack and searchlights, but had to dive. She's out of depth charges. The small convoy got away.

Now we wait and see who gets bored first. She's hurt much worse than me, but she's still pinging away like crazy. Good thing my batteries and O2 are almost full.

19 SEPT 39. 2nd patrol. Heading Southwest, submerged in the A.M., along the Western English coastline. We picked up on hydrophones, a slow-moving merchant moving towards us! With heavy seas and thick fog, we tracked her for three hours with the hydrophones. Seaman Bernard causes a rukus during our silent run by sharpening knives with a gritty emery cloth much to the dismay to our L1.
We surface and move in a direction to intercept the merchant. Out of the fog she appeared on a collision course towards us! We circled to the starboard and checked out her flag as she passed us going the opposite way. Americans! :(
I order the Navigator to resume our course to our assigned patrol area.
For punishment, I assign Bernard to get his sleep on the deck for the next three days.
Our journey continues....

U-505 engages huge convoy escorted by 8 DDs

From: BdU
To : All uboats

U-505 has failed to make contact after she confirmed heavily escorted convoy in her sector. It is with great pity that we accept the loss of U-505 , her commander Kptlnt Heinz von Harris along with all hands.

A great career is finished in the dark waters of the Med in a dark stormy night. A new one is about to start all over again.

Someone notify the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry quickly!

they are going to need a replacement exhibit

Gerald 12-26-10 08:18 AM

Nice, :up:

GoldenRivet 12-26-10 08:52 AM

Just launched SH3 via SH3 Commander.... I have orders to take command of the 5th Flotilla.

Looks like the career is over.

U-36 will continue to sail however under a new commander.

Gerald 12-26-10 08:56 AM

Career seems to go fast here, the probable successor to Dönitz, :DL

Missing Name 12-26-10 10:52 AM

I got out of the pesky DD situation! I let her ram me. I lost almost everything on the control tower, but she exploded and broke in two. I guess I had weakened her more than I thought.

The next patrol, I shot down a Wellington. The last torpedo was less than five minutes from being fully loaded into the internal compartments, so I didn't want to dive. I almost got the Kingfisher that tried to come to the rescue, but after a bit, she retreated, smoking heavily.

I love that FlaKvierling 20mm, but I'm not making a habit out of this deck emplacement.

Gerald 12-26-10 11:09 AM

I rarely dive down when I see a Kingfisher they are slow and sluggish and can not tolerate as many rounds, :yep:

After his fifth patrol with U-151, Rudolf Eickmeyer took command of U-1193 a type VIIC uboot.

Patrol 6:

30JUL44 23h19 Left La Rochelle

07AUG44 BE75 14h13 Caught on surface by enemy airplane. Minor damages while emergency dive. Flooding controlled rapidly and boat levelled at -55m. Hydrophon check in case of enemy warships nearby. No warships but we heard a faint noise in the distance.
16h00 Surface the boat. No airplanes but as we managed to follow the underwater contact lookouts had no difficulties to find a nice tanker
17h01 Submerged attack. 2 TIII fired with a 30 seconds interval
17h03 1 hit amidships followed by massive explosions
17h05 Ship sunk. No life boats seen.
M/V British Ambassador. 10.228 tons

21AUG44 AJ29 South of greenland
5h30 Convoy detected with hydrophon. Stormy weather, poor visibility
9h02 Surface the boat ( stupid move...), immediately under fire by escorts in heavy fog, crash dive, levelled at -140m. first depth charges quite off. Decision to come back to periscop depth and to fire 2 gnat to the convoy.

9h09 Torpedoes fired and we dove again after 1 min of silence ( to avoid our own acoustic torpedoes).
9h12 Torpedo impact! Soon followed by sinking noises
9h17 Ship sunk. no clue about the type nor the tonnage...

9h50 Cat and mouse play with escorts ( i played it at 1x, totally nerve-wrecking...). at least 7 escorts on the hydrophon. Depth -203m. Bolds useless so far, pings and depth charges continue...

9h52 Damage report! Flooding! Blow ballast in emergency! Luckily we managed to repair fastly and the flooding is under control. Boat is now at -152m and hull seems to hold the pressure. I think we got damaged by hedgehogs

10h03 It seems that the last bold we launched is effective, depth charges explode behind us now

10h50 Despite some pings it seems that enemy escorts lost contact with us and can't regain

11h30 We slowly raised to -100m, escorts and convoy are now leaving the place

15h00 Surface the boat, damage inspection report medium damages to the pressure hull. We won't attack this convoy another time. We are lucky to be still alive and we can thank the storm... Drinks and food for everybody on board

25AUG44
12h00: Our base is no longer La Rochelle but Bergen in Norway. Fuel should be ok

10SEP44 21h18 Docked at Bergen

43 days at sea
2 ships sunk ( intel confirmed our second sinking, a 12.000 tons tanker!!)
22.380 tons (carreer total 78.052 tons, 14 ships sunk)
H.I 71.30%

Kptlt Rudolf Eickmeyer will make a last patrol with U-1193 before commissioning a new type of uboot...
