http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/354.gif Well i just got done with my firsts patrol and i thought i would just share my experiance. May be long but i feel like typeing and shareing my trip http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif difficulty 67% about. iv played SH3 and know my way around but not an expert. I am useing manual fire with this one. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/typing.gif

I left the dock and was on course to my
objective when 2 destoryers and small gunboat came my direction from port. I was not sure if i should risk it and go for them(They looked like a sub hunting party!) before i even start my trip. Well i chose to go for it and sunk the first destoryer with ease. The other two ships then decided to evade and full steam it north away from me.(Little odd i thought). So i launched a torpedo into the gunboats rear hopeing the destoryer would come and help it. It shocked me to see the destoryer keep going, (All for themselfs i guse) but he was zig zaging now. Thinking i need torpedos to complete my patrol i sufaced and deck guned the gunboat and noticed shells come from the destroyer i was joyed that he was finaly comeing for me. So i did a 180 and dived to parascope depth at flank speed with aft torpedos ready to swim. He got 500 yards away depth charged and then started on his way agian.(hmmm no pings or anything?) He was at 3000 yards away when i just surfaced and nailed him with 5 nice deck gun rounds acrosss his port side and down he went. Then i continued on my way.



At my objective and start hunting merchants now. I spote two merchant ships and line up my shots. With most of my torpedos used on the destoryers i used my last 4 front torpedos(2 for each ship) and 1 rear torpedo(most were used on destoryers too). scored 2 hits on first merchant and 2 on the other. One sank fast while the other gave up more of a fight so i surfaced and finished him off. After that my mission was over and started home.


On my way back i came across the famous lazy convoy that everyone is talking about so i dived to about 150 and went right under the convoy and returned to parascope depth behind a light cursier. 3 torpedos left so i sunk 1 light cursier and wounded another .. then a waiting game started. I was siting and thinking why no destoryers were even pinging me while i was around about 4 of them. They left the light crusier(about time) and now i surfaced at safe distance and shelled it to the bottem. Went home very happy after that patrol 5 warships and 2 merchants down to the locker!

I noticed alot of the ships in that convoy were stoped because the aft of thier ship was partly out of water(It was rough weather), so i was thinking maybe that was why this convoy was at a stand still. Just my thoughts.
