At last, I have my first non-training kill. I ran across the unlucky merchant late one night. After stalking her for a little while, I fired one torpedo. I thought I had missed and was preparing to launch another from closer range, when the torp finally hit! It was running for about 3 minutes, according to the chronometer.

I guess I got extremely lucky, because the merchant ship began to sink immediately. http://img149.imageshack.us/img149/8382/firstkill9xj.jpg

The crew was in high spirits after sending 2040 tons of Allied shipping to the bottom. We returned to a joyous welcome from the happy frauleins. All is well on my boat, the "Slow Ride".

3 MINUTES!!!!!!!

Man, don't be shy, get close to the target like under 1000 meters...don't fire until you can see the whites of the shipmaster's eyes! You need to dirty dance with that C2, not waltz!

Anyways, enjoy the nurses and flowers. Don't do anything that might embarrass your mom with the Kriegsmarine band members while in port.

No you werny lucky. 1 shot will allways kill a small merchant unless very badly placed.

You know what I like most? The shot of the nurse throwing the roses, caught in mid-air. Nice timing on the shutter!

Nice sinking, by the way.
