I enjoy the GW mod, but I haven't seen any air attacks to my U-Boat, or to convoys. Was wondering if thats norm or not. Also, does anyone know how to eliminate those range and bearing tracks from your u-boat that appear in the navigation and targeting screens. At times I miss the orange marker too.

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif Air attacks have been sparse. The only one that really caused a stir occured as I was leaving Lorient about 4am. The tower watchman announced "air craft spotted." Nothing unusual about that. I was in the Lorient channel. Bf109s
are a common sight. My escort was trailing me at this point. I know the way out. All at once there was two large explosions astern. I turned to see the escort in flames; just having been straddled by a stick of bombs. I'm not sure if my boat had been spotted or not, but the escort was perhaps 200 yards astern. The aircraft made this single run and sped off. The date is Dec 1942. How frequent such raids were on the sub pens at this point, I do not know. I immediately put two gunners on the mounts with a watch officer present. I will leave port this way from now on.

The other thing to look out for is Destroyers ramming you in the fog. Zero visibility is not safe within 300km of the English coast, as I found out last night.
