So I'm crossing the Bay of Biscay when my RO says we're getting hit with radar. I adjust heading accordingly to intercept. I get within sight and identify it as an American Gato class submarine.

Must have been a first half of the war crew, the six fish they fired at you either missed or ran to deep or did not detonate or maybe they just were that bad....<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Yup, .....Up until 1943, six dud MK14s in a row would not have been unusual! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

What, hasn't anybody pointed out something strange about those pictures? Why is a submarine spawning floating crates as it sinks? Look at the last photo in the sequence.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

The crates were on deck with the cook in the middle of inventory of food supplies. Bad time to be attacked.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

That was a US version of a "Milk Cow" boat... but with a terrible Navigator.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Hmm I doubt any Gato would have been around the bay of Biscay.
Im working on Models for the British S and T class submarines, while Serg over at sub sim has a U-class, hopfully we can fix this tin time<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

A 'must have' feature
Fully operational AI subs are as important as AI ships and planes -They were there-. Please dont repeat SH3's biggest Short coming in SHIV.
Thank you
