Liddabit, First SH3, then GWX, now the Military channel. Welcome to full-blown Submarine addiction. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Do you already have SH4 on order, or will you only be patrolling in the Atlantic ?

Yeah I saw this last night, it is about U-309 and U-1020, and a small segment on the Enigma Machine. I saw it on History International channel.

I always once a week, do a search on my DVR for Uboat/Uboot and Submarines.

Hehe my hubby came back from Iraq last week and he keeps teasing me by saying in a high pitch voice "Omg submarines submarines submarines omg omg"

&lt;smack! &gt; :-P

Ooo I wish I saw that Tuddley. This one was about Uboats in general talking about the type 7s and 9s and how the English convoy tactic was the perfect target for Admiral Donitz's wolfpack idea from World war 1. Also talked about the Gneisenau and Scharnhorst which SH commander and GWX talk about http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

It was really neat to see the footage of the insides of the uboats and the crew, for some reason the lives of those men seems really fascinating to me living underwater in such closed spaces. The footage of the crew in this show made the crews look much more professional than the Das Boot crew, but maybe they were putting on a show for Goebel's cameras :P
