What happened?

Probably be easier just to ask what didn't happen...lol.

I was shot at, depth-charged, rammed, and shot at some more - then took on water and had to fight from sinking.

It was basically a reckless attack on a convoy that had at least 3 escorts. At one point my boat was bouncing around like a cork, even though I was (supposed to be) at periscope depth, most of my tower and the front deck were sticking out of the water. I temporarily lost helm control and smashed into a corvette - that's how I lost both my guns.

Most of it was just smoke and confusion, I took out 2 escorts for sure, and another was burning when I went quiet and limped away, but I'm fairly certain there was some friendly fire and collisions involved...

That I managed to survive that mess and then sneak away was a miracle, or a glitch maybe, who knows. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Ask Doenitz, take the nurse throwing flowers on the pier to a fancy restaurant and hire a cozy hotel room in the country! You´ll be a new Kaleun upon your return to duty! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Ahah, it is you who has been fooled! He never smashed your 88 cause you don't have one! hah! You have, excuse me, had an 8.8cm gun not the infamous 88 flak. <--Nitpick hehe

Hehe, you are right of course, but I may send my crew out to salvage a real 88 from a Tiger tank. Not sure how we're going to mount it on the deck though... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

By the way, my boat sustained some more damage tonight..lol. Took a bomb from some Hurricanes outside Gibraltar. Gunner was wounded and stern got charred...

Ah, but do we know why all these weapons in the german militarys arsenal were 8.8cm or 88mm!?

For after WWI part of the armistace was for them to not build any rifled barrels larger then 88mm or 8.8cm.

Anren the tommy magnet eh? You sure they didn't plant a homing device in your u-boat captain's head?

Pilot #1: I'm getting a strage blip on my radar

Pilot #2: What is it?

Pilot #1: It reads out easy kill in bold letters

You could be right. Either my crew is divinely blessed or eternally cursed - we take a lot of damage, but always come home.

Actually I think some of my guys were transferred over from McHale's Navy.

I can't wait for things to hot up like this, to get bombed rammed depth charged and nearly sunk in one mission, you lucky b*****d, I would give my iron cross for that to happen to me.

At the moment I€m doing my 6th patrol, and it's so quiet and so easy, Im in danger of falling asleep.

Survived another night of damage...lol. That's three near death patrols in a row. No visible damage this time - just pressure hull and compartment damage.

Wondered into a convoy near the end of my mission in terrible weather. Managed to knock off 2 troop transports before the escorts turned on me.

Come on now....tell the truth..you run in to the first thing that you find on the sea that will give you enough damage so you can just get back to that pretty nurse in port.... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Darn, I€m trying to damage my sub by ramming it into the dock wall but it wont damage. And when I try to attract destroyers I always end up sinking them by mistake before they can damage me.
I want my sub to look like Anrens

It actually surprises me that they went through the trouble to model exterior damage to the sub llke that. I was really shocked when I saw that burn damage from the aircraft. Makes me wonder what else I can break... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif
