I've heard many of you state that you've never seen the LW in action in SHIII & I, stating that I had seen them on numerous occassions, said that I could only guess that it was included as part of the Real Harbor mod I have installed. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif Well, after doing some deep digging in my SHIII folder I found the real answer.... I was partly right but not totally:

Airpower mod special version by Jace11 to be used with the Harbour Traffic mod 1.45c.

well, I read this topic today and must be a lucky one!...

last night (i run one mission a night) I was coming out of Kiel in my type viib and after getting out of the muck of islands getting close to the big turn into open water (the area where you start to see less german naval activity)I recieved a ship spotted message.

I quickly checked my weather and it was reported wind at 1mph so I prepared for deck gun mode. Typically I lock my periscope first to get a range for the gun then move to position and start gunning. BUT!.. this time when I viewed the ship (only a tugboat http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif ) I also noticed planes dive bombing the boat!.

Lol! I was so surprised, I honestly thought it was the allies bombing a german tug at first. I opened up my chart and noticed BLUE diamonds circling over red square. It was the first time ingame I found myself hopeing they would miss!.. lol

I watched the attack.. they did miss and I gunned the tug to the depths. It was however super cool to watch the planes dive and bombs explode in the water.

Later I found a large convoy in AM52 51 that was supported by one clemson and one flower, I sunk the clemson at 950, and gun battled the flower taking some damage but overall winning. Largest convoy I have ever decimated using all guns (including star shells at very close range) and every torp, doing 94k tonage in sinkage. It was simply awsome! Three T3's, two T2's (go down easy with deck gun btw) 3 C3's and a couple C2's. I LOVE that area for convoys.

It was my last mission in my type viib and my 10nth mission before I moved to Lorient and my new shiny ixb.

I must say a fitting end and definately worth the promotion. I only wish I could have broke 100k!.. but oh well. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif maybe I can with my ixb.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It does happen, airships are present ingame and they do attack allied boats. Its very cool and makes the game seem even more real.

happy hunt

oh ps.. almost forgot

I do not run any mods on my game, this sighting was in the completely normal game.
