I am currently playin in Feb. of 1940 (my previous campaign, from 1939-1944, ended when a destroyer rammed my IX-D2 in a nighttime thunderstorm, i crashdived, lost control of the boat with heavy flooding, fought for 2 hours to save her with extremely heavy damage... I never recovered her as she fell to over 300 meters. campaign over! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif) and a Hunt I destroyer by chance happened on my location and I noticed on his first pass that his starboard propeller was wobbling badly... I thought maybe it was a bug or a modelling error, but the next time I saw a Hunt I destroyer, his props seemed just fine, which leads me to believe he damaged himself when he dropped a spread of 8 at a depth of about 15 meters. Anyone else seen ships sink or damage themselves with their own charges?

I saw a Sutherland Sqaudron attack a German DD off the coast of France in the Bay of Biscay. All the sutherlands were shot down before they could release their bombs. Except for one sutherland, right when it dropped it's bombs the German AA blew it out of the sky....the bombs hit and the DD sunk.

Really wierd, thought I'd share.

But I blame the Allied DD's killing them selves with their own DC's on poor crew training :P

I finished the Naval acadamy exams and noticed that on the convoy mission that the small escort at the rear of the convoy started to fire at the destroyer at the head of the convoy. Both had english markings and I was confused as well as laughing my *** off as I was able to sink two merchants and escape unharmed.

So far Ive only managed to get a destroyer to shoot another one with the deck guns, i had one chasing me which had to break off due to a near collision with a T2, as he was stopped the other destroyer behind him started shooting at my periscope. needless to say there was something in the way.Didnt do much damage, but thats what the stern tubes are for, and when theyre stopped waiting on traffic it makes for a nice shot.

Believe it or not, same thing happened to me. I thought it was hilarious, as I had one less DD to worry about.
