Out on my 3rd patrol. I don't save to protect myself and I don't resume a saved point if I die. I almost finished the war last go round, but got carried away and died..started over and died chasing a stupid merchant why planes attacked this last career, not a good Captain.
Out of AA ammo. A plane was attacking me, even though on fire. I was shooting at it with the deck gun. It looked like a direct hit and said destroyed the sec the shell hit. I swear I hit it. Did I, is this possible or did it just finally die at that moment the shell appeared to hit? Do you ever get the flak shell that stays blacked out for the deck gun, what's it there for..iit's never activated for me.
I am shocked, but happy how the planes really go at ya in TMOH. I didn't know they attacked at night. It seems when a few run out of bombs, more show up. I almost thought I was playing stock, because for over 400 miles, the second I surfaced, planes were on me. I lost radar, so they were medium range. I understand how they are allowed to find you deep, but I swear they seemed to get me no matter how deep and do damage, even after long periods under.
I don't know what finally killed me. I've seen a few SS close to this, but there was a hole that blew my conning tower almost off and the ship almost in half...I mean huge. I had 95% damage and lived for a minute, but had to surface. Whatever hit me, landed on me, cuz that was the first time I saw my sub blow up in flaming explosions like a ship.
The planes were just relentless. I guess they spot you, they keep directing more to you. They just spot me very deep.
