First patrol, IXb boat. Sailed around the British Isles, picking off small game. The decided to try my luck and sneak into Scapa Flow.

Followed Prien's route, along a sound where the final block ship hasn't been sunk yet. Cruised in on the surface, dead slow. Found a bunch of DD's, as well as a battleship and a battlecruiser.

Decided to attack from the surface, like Prien. 4 hits on a battlecruiser from 3.5km away. All of a sudden, every ship in harbor knew where I was, and everyone started shooting... The battlecruiser was between me and the battleship, and fire from the battleship demolished the BC superstructure http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Reloaded, and proceeded to attack underwater, to mimic Prien's attack (Ok, so I didn't have a VII boat, oh well).

BC took 6 hits before it sank, and the BB took my remaining 4 torpedoes.

These turned out to be the Hood and Resolution
