Eschem Schnuz's Letters, 29th Flotilla
 
Dear Uncle Karl,

It's all becoming a blur at this point. :yawn:

Endless waiting, sinking lone ships, endless waiting, diving from enemy aircraft, endless waiting, bumping into convoys, failing to sink anything and diving from enemy warships, endless waiting... :yawn:

Any idea when the war's gonna end?

Good to have you back...

Have fun and good hunting! :sunny:

Dear Uncle Karl,

Please convey my gratitude and thanks to Herr Tikigod and his package of pin-up posters. They were very... ahem, "uplifting". :O:

Also, give my regards to the boys at U-96 from Bavaria Studios. Fun lot, that bunch. :D

Very useful, those G7es eels. Actually managed to incapacitate a Liberty cargo 10 minutes after I dove to escape a convoy.

Installed SH3 again. GWX Gold and Commander too.

Its August 1939, U-48 going out from Wilhelmhaven to BF17. Actual position somewhat north of Stornoway.

Enjoying the view at sunset... listening my good old grammaphone... waiting for the war.

:salute:

Me too. U-64, type IX.

Osmium Steele 09-29-11 01:32 PM

U-285 is currently south of Reykjavic, patrolling the convoy routes.

In my entire SHIII career, I had never even spotted a carrier. Now I've sunk two Bogues in just over 2 weeks game time. A Fiji light cruiser as well. I'm loving the mid Atlantic.

My largest warship kill previous was an auxiliary cruiser.

3 task forces lose their largest ships, with no retaliation, in just over two weeks. I wonder how Tommy would have handled that?

I've spotted heavies near Gibraltar, but was never in a position to los.

Heading home to pounce on the large convoy just beyond visual range.

VONHARRIS 09-30-11 03:26 AM

I accidentaly deleted my last career so I had to start a new one.
U-103 IXB is currently attacking a convoy in grid BE59.
The date is 19 December 1939.

PhantomLord 09-30-11 04:01 AM

Oh dear... i just wanted to finish my actual SH4 patrol and return to port. Sunk 40k tons off the american coast.
April 1942... sunk by aircraft bombing... all hands lost.

Well... iŽll draw my full attention to SH3 now :D
