One of my current captains is now in 1943, however he almost didn't make it past 41.

I was sneaking into a convoy for like the 7th time, when a flower caught wiff of me and started to attack.

I lost a kalun this way once and I know not to waste time trying to hide. I hit ahead full and got my but down as fast as I could.

I normally play at 100% realism but every now and then I turn on some eye candy and this mission I had my external camera enabled. (It was very telling one how the escort AI works.) I used the external camera to basically cheat during this incident, but it didn't make a difference.

Well I dodged his first wabo run but just by the skin of my teeth. Normally I lose even good DD's after the first wabo run, but this flower picked me up again right away.

Once again I dodged the attack but this time because I was down to 200 meters. Those wabos landed almost right ontop of me.

Down I went. All the way to 240.

The flower droped 2 more perfectly placed wabo paterns right ontop of me. His wabo throwers making it difficult to do anything.

I stoped trying to dodge and just crept along. It worked and the flower started droping the wabos behind me. Few I thought, finally I got away.

But no the flower found me again after about 800 meters and turned and droped another patern directly over me.

It was then that I noticed that I forgot to turn silent running on. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

I might have already posted this incident, I can't remember. But I think some new posters might find it interesting.

Well this is a turn up for the books. i add this then i get a great encounter, i was moving around the north above scotland. first contact with a destroyer this time out. dark and gloomy but relatively calm weather. i sighted the destroyer some 4000m away and closing fast. so i decided to crash dive to 50m just incase there was an air threat too. i manually slowed her down to 2knots. and looked on freeview above the sub. turned the game time to x32 and saw the DD arrive. as it got close it did ping me but only briefly and i managed to avoid confruntation. i watched as the DD sped off into the distance asif it had found another U-boat in the area. i carried on towards the north or ireland and noted that the weather was getting extreme with chopping waves and the like. again my men spotted a ship... it was a small tug. i decided as i was 90 degrees to this tug i could have a pop. well would u believe it. at 8knots it managed to pick up my torp' and avoid it. well i thought to myself. 'he aint gettin anutha wasted on him'. so i carried on on the surface. much to my suprise 10 mins later the men get alerted to a flower corvette (or 'tortilla' as i affectionately call them) . it was closing fast and this time was much closer to the sub. crash dive and hard to port were my instructions as the corvette narrowly missed the rear of my sub. 'depth charges in the water sir' ... flippin close too!! . enough to roll my sub in the water and damage the tower.. well i decided to loose a decoy at 100m and then slowly rise to 50m. it worked i had him interested in the coy' intead of my 1knot sub. i turned up the game speed to watch him get bored and trundle off........ about 10 mins more later. im alerted not by the crew but by a huge shell entering my hull. 'ka krunch' 'dive dive dive' i shouted. and got my tub crash diving for the 3rd time... i could see a destroyer a fair way out with its forward gun opening up. yet anuther shell hit my hull and caused damage in the engine and main compartments. i cruised down to 140m at 3knots. and managed to repair the damage. my men did a stirling job...... well now i had time to scan the open ocean i could see why the DD was so alert.. i had stumbled upon a merchent convoy. sadly time was against me and i had to end the game for work. but i had an enjoyable time. even tho i didnt score a kill or even a hit LoL ... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
