View Full Version : Why did I get the type VIIB in 1939, 7th Flotilla, when starting a new campaign?

Shouldn't I have had to start with the IIA and work my way up to the VIIB in later years?

Nope. The 7th flottila starts with a VII. Your next step is the VIIC, then the IX or XXI I think. I'm staying with my VIIB- it's a really great sub, and I have grown to like mine - it's been good to me. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Yah know,

Now I'm thinking that it would add more of a challenge and a reward to start with the Type IIA, sans deck gun, and have to work my way up.

Maybe next campaign. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The starting subs for several of the flotillas were changed between the printing of the manual and the final build of the game. The correct version is in the readme.txt file.

Great I'll check it out!

I was thinking it was based on your starting renown?

I am glad I started in the 1st flotilla and that little wee sub the IIA. I had not played a sub sim for several years so really did not know how bad off I was in the IIA. Figured this is just how it is. Then I upgraded to the VII and was blown away with how awesome it was.
If i had started with the VII, I would not of had that 'Am I ever lucky for getting a VII' feeling.

Ditto that. A Type IIA will make you really appreciate a VII. On my first patrol with a VII, I started getting very excited when my torpedo men kept reloading the tubes!

You can check out what kind of subs were used by flotillas at: http://uboat.net/flotillas/
(in fact you should learn this site by heart any way.)

I like VIIs and I don't really like IXs, so I think I will stick to my VII as long as I can.
