First time I've ever had this happen.

Finished my prior patrol, went back to Pearl for refit, and was surprised at my orders. Proceed to position north west of Midway at 12 knots and search for enemy fleet." Not the exact words, but close enough. I've never had a direct order to advance at a certain speed before either.

So far I have identified one light cruiser, one Kongo class BB, 3 Hiryu class CVs, and several destroyers.

*GULP*

I radioed their position and have been ordered to attack.

Wish me luck.

That one is always fun to find. Usually you hang around you will find it coming back from battle days later.

Not stock reddeath, V1.5 with TMO latest version, and, the appropriate RSRD running with it.

Ah, they will be good and spread out for you.
Catch them at the right place or follow them and you may see the US planes attacking.

Well, I survived.

Bagged two DDs right off the bat as they were busy dealing with USN dive bombers.

Then I bagged a Kongo class BB...

This apparently got the Japanese a bit upset, as they sent every Val in the known universe after me...

I managed to escape with 30% hull damage and no casualties. Returned to Pearl on the 12th. of June in plenty of time for beer and medals.

I hope you realize that 30 years from now when your old and gray, that you'll have to write your memoirs of the patrol. You could call it, "Midway: How I Won the War" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif



Just kidding, El. Nice job on the BB. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I didn't get any of them. I was crash diving when I took that screen shot. The explosion you see is a mid air collision. They took out three of their own that way...

Haha, nice. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif I bet those pilots were feeling silly when they got picked up.
