I just had quite the battle. Like Wulfmann, I was getting into position to intercept a convoy when it changed course and ran over me. There were 7 escorts and no chance of evasion. There was an epic battle, one I had no business surviving, but I got lucky and took out all 7 escorts. Thank goodness for Falke.

I surface to parallel the convoy's course and sprint ahead while I reload externals, and what do I see but a second convoy crossing the path of the first! This one also has 7 escorts; I manage to avoid detection and resume my original plan. Quite the exciting night!

This was off the west coast of Ireland, just at the edge of the continental shelf. Always lots of convoys there and much safer than the BF or AM areas later in the war.

Edit: I guess this is still in AM, just not near the AM53 chokepoint.
