Well, I don't know about you guys, but I keep running across convoys. It's mid-Dec 1939, I just returned from my 3rd patrol, and my third convoy. Take a look at the map in the box, and see where all the convoy routes converge heading into or out of Liverpool. That's where I've encountered all three of them. So far, they've all been unescorted, but that's sure to change. They seem to run in a box formation, 4 columns of 4 ships. The first convoy I encountered wasn't a full 16, but the other two have been, with a mix of British and American ships of all sizes. Here's a few shots.
Most of the convoy spotted, setting up the attack run from within the convoy.
Attack run completed, maneuvering out while reloading, setting up for another.
Surfaced as it gets light. Talk about a target rich environment!
Cripple being left behind by the convoy. This one gets away when my last 3 torps are duds.
Final look. Bye!
