U-10 (IIA, "die Elster"), patrol 5
 
Ob.Lt.z.s. Harry Wiebus
1. Flottille, Kiel
Orders: Patrol grid AN81


24.2.1940

Not much of a patrol, one 1800 freighter sunk. Two misses, two duds, one hit in trying to master a 60 degree AOB attack. All 20 mm Flak ammunition used. AN82 seems to be a busy grid, probably lots of traffic between Holland and England. U-37 has been lost and the other boats have seen tremendous action, U-111 sinking Implacable. U-65 is amidst a convoy battle, hope they get out safely.

U56 IIC. Patrol 1.
 
1.sep.39
AO77
0355: Underway from Kiel.
Orders: Patrol Grid AN56.
Observe Prize Law.
Neutrals exiting England are to remain unmolested.
Armament: Five TII G7E torpedoes, set to MZ (Magnetic Trigger).

Arived on station 7.sep.39.
Departed grid 13.sep.39 (Heavy Fog).

One warship detected on hydrophone.
2 separate departing neutrals (Norge) chased, and allowed free passage.

21.sep.39
AO77
0920: Docked at Kiel.

Returning dockside news:

U10's completed her first war patrol 2 days ahead of us, on 19.sep.39.
She sunk 3 ships for 13.000 GRT.

U83 departed Wilhelmshaven on 19.sep.40 for her first war patrol.
She had just completed a peacetime shakedown cruise prior.
(You haven't got U111 yet).

From a future crystal ball:
The families of U37's crew are grateful to the brave captain and crew of U111.

Note: I'll try my best to back through the reports, and include as much as possible in relation to my current date. It should prove interesting, I hope.

Snestorm , doing this can be very time consuming but very good for immersion. Good luck.

Welcome back Paul, can't wait to read about your latest exploits! :yep:

ijnfleetadmiral 07-08-11 08:52 PM

U-46 got into the Firth of Forth on her last patrol...sighted one C-class DD, a C3 cargo ship, a small merchant, and a T3 tanker in an impossible firing position. WTH? Where are the major warships in this game? This is my second campaign and the biggest warship I've sighted thus far has been a CVE. As of right now, it's 16 March 1940, and I'm about to embark on another patrol. Anyone got any ideas as to where I might find AT LEAST a CL to try my luck at?
