    The Iowa is nice, but if you want a big boom, find a NC BB. For whatever reason one torp will always sink it and it is by far the largest explosion of any ship I've seen in game, then it sinks in seconds like a brick. The Iowa needs about 6 torps.

    Course this is playing OM with RSRD. Find Halsey's TF heading North for the battle of Leyte...you'll get many carriers, Iowa's, NC's..ect

    From a personal standpoint, I hope if you do get any of those two classes, it's not the Iowa or North Carolina.

    Dad served on the Iowa, and was part of the team that helped open up new areas in the North Carolina to visitors. You might say I consider them to be distant family. ...or at least old friends.
    A man may fight for many things: his country, his principles, his friends, the glistening tear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally I'd mud wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock, and a sack of French porn.

    I upgraded my sub with all the latest equipment
    so I could get away from the Iowa's escorts if
    I managed to pull of an attack after that it was off to the pacific I was south of Midway
    when a radio report of a fast moving task force
    heading my way so I moved in for an attack.
    I got the sound contacks of many warships so
    I dove to 300 ft. I coun't beleave that the escorts didn't find me but the albritch anti sonar coating helped. I went to periscope depth
    raised the periscope I couldn't believe what I
    saw. There was an Iowa class battle ship with several carriers but the Iowa was the big prize.
    I fired all six bow torps and 5 out of 6 hit the
    target but it slowed the Iowa way down to 9knt's
    Then the escorts launched thier assault I dove
    back down to 300 ft and deployed decoys and
    engaged the walter turbine because that was the onley way I could catch up to the Iowa submerged
    then headed to the other side of the iowa for the final blow. Rose up to perisope to find that
    the Iowa picked up speed again by two knots but she was not going to escape frome me I fired 4
    more torpedoes all were hits then a massive
    fire ball erupted in front of the super-
    structure and that signalled the end of the Iowa
    she rolled and in one quick motion she was under
    the waves but the escorts werenn't very happy
    about it. The second assault was worse than the
    first I took 48% damage and had to get to port
    with destroyed radar and both the scopes but it was worth it on my log it said Iowa class
    battleship 45000 tons and a boat load of reknown

    Good job. I enjoyed playing the bad dog and played UBoats and enjoyed attacking the large US fleets.

    Take some SS's next time. Here are a few of my sinkings.

    I'll just hope that was the New Jersey.
