I finally did it. I am in command of U-2515 XXI type uboat and what do I get for my firdt patrol with this boat:

1. Radar destroyed before even I left port
2. Can not maintain periscope depth at flank speed (no snorkel). Easier at lower speeds.
I didn't encounter such problems with my U-123 IXB.
Is it a bug?
I have patch 1.4 sh3c ver3.2.023 and visual mods.

There is a thread about this, see here: http://forums.ubi.com/eve/foru...7101043/m/7521046438 (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/857101043/m/7521046438)

I knew about that , it is about the IXD2 type. Anyway I found out that the advanced radar on the snorkel head is not working but the normal set works fine. I managed to reach the end of the war.
Figures are: U-46 VIIB 8 patrols
U-123 IXB 31 patrols
U-2515 XXI 3 patrols
TOTAL: 42 patrols
600 days at sea
I sunk : 261 merchants 1,379,640 grt
129 warships 463,400 grt
TOTAL: 390 SHIPS 1,843,040 grt
(includes capital warships)
I shot down 137 planes and had 15 casualties (mostly flak gunners)
TOTALLY UNREALISTIC FIGURES
But that is the FUN of the game!

VonHarris,
I also just got the type XXI, and got the bug when you get the latest radar, so I just use the previous one. I also had a problem where the battery would not recharge up to 100%, it would recharge only to about 98% or 99%.
Also, can you please tell me where you got so many capital ships? So far I got only 1 escort aircraft carrier that I randomly bumbed into near Ireland. I also know you get them in Loch Ewe harbour but it's quite dangerous sneaking in there.

Most of the 129 warships sunk were DDs , DEs and corvettes. I found for example a task force of 1 Nelson BB 2 Fiji CLs and 7 DDs just east of the coast of France

Others can be found in ports like Scapa Flow or Loch Ewe from 15 September 1939 until 3 September 1943 , but raiding ports is very risky. In this career I was extremely lucky in getting out of ports after the attack. (Perform a search in this forum using keyword capital warships to find more info)
I have also found TFs outside of ports but again you have to be lucky to be in the right position to intercept. Of course you may bump into one.
I didn't have any problem with recharging the batteries.

Thanks Vonharris,
I hope to sink Battle ships and aircraft carriers in the middle of the sea, they are so fun to watch sink slowly after with external view. I heard that task forces are apprantly mostly easily found South of Italy or near Gibraltar strait but had no luck there so far. I also once saw a task force West of Portugal With 1 Revenge and 1 Lord Nelson plus DD's, I saved, but then I messed up the attack and then loaded again, but this time the task force became an aircraft carrier, some cruisers and DD's, but no Battleships. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif
The battery recharge problem with type XXI is a manageble problem, only annoying that I have to switch to "standart propulsion" when I see it charge up to 98%.

Generaly speaking TFs are rare in the standard game. I don't go near the Straits nor the Med (ASW too strong)
I usually find them around Britain and the open sea , central Atlantic. Indeed , watching a BB going down is exciting!
Good hunting Herr Dron22!
