Caught a task force heading into the Irish Sea from the BF area - made up of a Fiji and shedloads of tankers, all types.

Heavily escorted - as we approached the rear of the convoy we are picked up by an Evarts Destroyer Escort. I order the gun crew to open up on it before we dive and do you know what?

They sunk the thing with literally 6-8 shots of AP!

I saw a few hits and went to PD thinking it would chase me and I would hit them with a fish from the stern tube but I looked through the 'scope and it was listing badly.

Went to external blew and it exploded and sank in seconds.

I think we must have those Depleted Uranium rounds for our 88mm!
