Hey all, I just finished my 4th patrol and not really sure what you can do with your renoun numbers, I gather you can spend them on crew and equipment upgrades. So my questions are as follows, what are the best upgrades for the type VII/B? (I am currently operating out of Kiel with the 7th Flotilla)or should I spring for better crewman? How does renoun affect you rank? I haven't posted much here because SHIII

After 4 patrols, you should have pretty well trained men, so unless you do need one more, don't exchange them.

Get the engine upgrade, the battery upgrade, sonar upgrade and wait until radar is available. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I suggest a couple good petty officers. Give 2 the engineer qualification, and make another 1 or 2 flak gunners. Trust me, you'll need them. Get them early so they start accumulating experience and be more efficient.

I personally went with improved engines and the KDB hydrophones and my own personal flotilla emblem for looks. As the others have mentioned investing in crew early is worth it: Radioman, machinist, medic, gunners and flak gunners, and helmsman are all skills that should be developed on a good working U-boat.
