View Full Version : May Become A GW Sooner Then Expected!

I was planning on installing GW as soon as my current patrol is over. Well last night, my patrol took a turn for the worst, and I'm lucky I'm not starting a new career!

I ended up astern of a convoy, with Corvettes on either side as escort. I tried to outflank the escort guarding the Port side of the convoy, to race ahead and put myself in a good fireing position. I was careful to keep a good distance from the escort, just keeping his smoke visible. It's only March\41, and either this Corvette had Radar, which I don't think was available yet, or her crew ate nothing but carrots, because from about 5000m, she made a hard turn towards me, and opened fire with her deck guns.

To make a long story short, the other escort soon joined in, and pounded me for over an hour, real time. Besides flooding which was brought under control, both my periscopes as well as both flak guns and radio antenna were destroyed. I will limp back to St. Nazaire, and install GW ahead of scedule.

GW is eye candy.
