it takes 37 seconds to dive the 9b to periscope depth...if it's only merchants fireing on you ..try setting your depth to 7 meters ...aka..{decks awash}....

Here are three possible solutions to your situation:

1. Don't fire at an armed merchant if he has friends who can join him in giving your sub damage. Dive, run until you’re at a safe distance then surface. Trail the target until dusk or night hours... then attack again, but with torpedoes.

2. If he's alone, aim for his deck gun with your HE rounds. It takes some practice, but doing so will make him helpless. The best way to get the correct windage (gun elevation) is to ask your WO for the distance to target and add +150m-+250m windage to that distance in your gun optics. For example: Target distance is 1500m, aim for his deck gun at 1700m or so.

3. If firing with your deck gun, give the armed merchant the narrowest possible target to shoot at. Meaning that if you are 90 degrees to his AOB (much like a torpedo attack), that would give him a slim chance of a successful hit. Running parallel with him in the same direction only give him a larger target to aim at. Personally, I attack from an armed merchant’s stern from about 1200m and not once have I been hit.

thanks for the advice. the 100k badge, do you get that for 1000 tons in one mission or is it from a career. If it is from one mission, how do you do it? <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Originally posted by bunkerratt:

That is the "100k Club".

You're in the club if you can prove that you've legitimately sunk over 100,000 tons of shipping. A picture of your Patrol Log with a post will do.

I totally agree with Rafe1 . shoot back or shoot first. i wont go without the deckgun, and i find it best to disarm them of theirs around 2500 meters or so . Ive got a bad habit of sniping their deckguns off , and then pulling up broadsides and letting them have it. I love the deckgun to death , and im happy to say ive become the Mad sniping ninja deckgunner (especially at night) with it.

Depending on weather conditions (waves and such) I usually manually aim and guesstimate the distance to the traget. Without using the optics, just the crosshair, i usually nail the deck gun after 3-5 shots.. I would ask the WO for distance, but i have the option disabled http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Oh, and about the 100K club, you gotta get 100K in one patrol, not in the whole career
