Yeah thats because it is indeed the correct translation http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

This funny term was really commonly used in the uboat fleet and propably in the surface fleet aswell. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

A captain would not use it in his reports and war diary of course. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

LOL are you serious, that is correctly translated? That's kind of funny. Never would have thought they'd use the word "crazy."

Reminds me of Space Balls: Ludicrous Speed!

I just found Google translates "Große fahrt voraus" into "Great ride ahead." This is listed on the telegraph where "ahead full" is located, but I noticed when I give the order "standard speed ahead" (key 3) the CE says "Große fahrt voraus." I guess there is an mixup in the vocals linked to that order.

Here's something interesting that's almost on topic. Might be desirable to modders to have a look at these, especially making command of a warship.
