I came across a tiny iccle Schooner, and since we were discussing the merits of saving torps and deck gun shells when Sloops were sighted in a recent thread, I thought (in the interests of the forum - I wouldn't have done it were I a real Kaleun http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/halo.gif ) I'd have a go at ramming one. Easy? ...NO!

So here is our iccle Schooner. Pretty ain't she? (well actually, YES! well done GWX team!)

A quick check in the recognition manual...17 whole tonnes! Let's go!

Creeping up on her...

Anyone see a U-Boat?

Darn it!

HARD TO PORT!

Brace for impact! (wonder how many times she rolls muah ha ha!)

Something magical and mystical going on here (No wonder she didn't roll)

Just bobbing along...

So my fellow Kaluens! a challenge! Who can sink a Schooner by ramming? I couldn't manage it - Can it be done?...You'll tell me!<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Thats too funny with the schooner http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

If I run into one I'll toy around for a minute or two but after that she gets the cannon! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

The last thing I heard as the British boarded my boat, "Boot hoch halten sonst wird keiner gerettet!"....Keep the boat afloat or no one will be rescued! My war was over....

I encountered one on my second GWX patrol:

I was in a hurry, so I elected to use the 20mm on her. (That's all my Type II can boast of.)

In the words of the '70s U.S. TV show "Hee-Haw"; ....."She blowed up real good!"

Make sure you took the BABES off first before you sunk the schooner with the rest of the male crew.... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
