Fellow Kaleu! Hear me!

What Sailor the Steve (mightiest of them all) speaks is truth! Helgoland is ruled by leather-clad dominatrix. It is an island full of beautiful naked women who know when a man needs a beer, and their sandwich-making skills are unparalleled anywhere else in the world. No Kaleun worth his weight in mustard and delicious ham would dare subject his crew to such a place. Be warned! Helgoland is a place of forbidden fruits and... cheese platters. No crew who has gone there has ever returned!! :stare:

Yep.. I know. Many Dutch have some bad memories of "GoHelland" .. (Hel is Hell in Dutch)
On my way to AN73... so I'll be 41 km south of hell.. must be enough :salute:

Just once, I'd like to play a campaign from the beginning to beyond 1943. :damn:

Sep 22 1943, sitting on the convoy route north of the Canary Islands.
The weather has been horrible. I cannot catch the high speed convoys in the 15M/S winds and high sea states. Only fired two eels the entire patrol so far, and those missed. Evidently, I left the scope up a hair too long and it was spotted on radar, because the entire convoy zigged when I gave the command to fire.

Finally got a report of a task force headed our way. OK, if there is a carrier included, we have a target.

Worked our way into position, fired two eels, both hit, escorts pinging away as usual. We are diving, decoying and evading. We are at 180 meters, silent running, 8 degree port rudder. The first reports of depth charges and that was all she wrote. Neptune starts banging on our hull with a humongous hammer.

Already had men in position for damage control, but to no avail. Just as we got a handle on the major flooding, the aft torpedo room collapsed due to pressure, and it hadn't even been damaged in the attack.

I was just too close to the escort, and Evarts class, from the beginning. Should have attacked from 4k+, not 2.5k.

Pinpoint precision with the first volley of wasserbombs. D I D. 1939 here we come.

I started a career in april of 1940 after my current one was found "dead" (was in TC and accident hit dive... doh) so I started the new career and we deck gunning a ship when I get the message "We are under attack" then a CTD... game hates me.

successively invaded Scapa flow, sank an illustrious class carrier. One load of torpedoes remaining. Received message, beginning operation hartmut.

Edit

Battleship HMS Nelson sunk while patroling for Operation Harmut. Took five torpedoes, one external stern left returning to base.

An impressive patrol: two capital warships sunk.
Congatulations
A Knights cross awaits you.
