Hi Guys

Recently I had a fat hospital ship running through my periscope - I did not attack it ? But was I right ?

How do you cope with that ?

Unless you want to end up in Nuremberg you just enjoy the sight and keep your fingers from "fire" button.

Sinking one of those also mean a massive loss of renown.

Hi general kalle

I run the grey wolves supermod and Beerys 1.45 + a few small mods (from before). It's the first time I saw a hospital ship - before grey wolves, nothing like that.

By the way - the slow sinking rate of the grey wolves is a bit overmodeled in my view. 5 Torpedoes to sink a C2 freighter ??? (2 Torpedoes carefully aimed when it already was stopped - still some hours to sink it)

In my 3.5 years at sea I've only managed to nail one troopship/liner, this at the start of the war. Since then, nothing bigger that a T3 tanker.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

I also let an American T3 pass by in Novermber '41. I was about to push the fire button when I saw the 'stars and stripes'. Man! was I upset, but decided to let it go...

I have not seen a Hospital Ship either, and that's after a years worth of playing the stock game and all of the IUB versions. In fact I have not encountered a single Troopship yet with IUB 1.03 installed, It's summer 1941 and I have seen my very first Victory Cargo.
