I've just read an account from SNSK that stated that Svea (Svalbard) was bombarded by a German U-Boat in August 1944:


I august 1944 ble Svea-anlegget brent ned av en tysk ub??t.

Does anyone know anything more about this action and, in particular, which U-Boat was involved?<div class="ev_tpc_sign

I did some poking around, and so far I haven't found any references to a U-Boat shelling Svalbard in 1944.

The U-992 (a Type VIIC) commanded by Oblt. Hans Falke, did visit Svalbard twice in 1944, for the purpose of setting up and maintaining an automated weather station.

I suppose it's possible that Oblt. Falke indulged in some casual target practice that didn't get officially reported.

I don't think it is for jollies. Apparently a post was sent by Seth concerning upload X1 mods for free and handing the out. He was using SUBSIM to do this. Also a threat of being a sniper so X 1 can come on over anytime they want. SUBSIM needs to look out for themselves legally as anyone else does. I believe Seth is pushing the limit at this point.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

As nice as Seth is, he broke the rules even after being reminded of them forcefully by a temp ban and quite honestly the ban was deserved under the rules of SubSim, and even here. He wasn't banned for jollies, he was banned for repeatedly breaking the forum rules.

If someone were to repeatedly confess to downloading stolen software here they'd probably be permabanned as well.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

All i can say is: Thanx to all the guys who stood up for me on subsim! Im am deeply thankful.

About the "sniper" treath: This was a humoristic thing i said, just like when i said that "i and ****** should jump on a plane and kick some X1 @ss". There is nothing seriouse about it; I dont even own a gun, and its been 6 years since i left the army.... I thank all of you guys who stood up and fought for me, its a priceless and nobel thing to do. please, i will not participate in any discussions about this issue. Its been professionally solved by the Subsim admins, and IMO there is too much pro and cons in this issue.

Kind regards

Hey common!
These forums are for the Kaleuns who play/mod the game.
We are not a bunch of crooks who steal other peoples work.
Any comment buy any Kaleun has got to be important as regards where we are viz playing the game with good mods or being exploited by Jugheads like X1.
Surely we have a right to discuss what we think are good and bad posts in these forums, Subsim. included.

Thanks for that. I've since been hunting on the net to see if I could find more information about the attack on Svea. Here are a few quotes I've found:

"In 1944 the little community Svea was razed to the ground by a German submarine." http://www.svalbard.com

"1944 August: Svea burnt to the ground by saboteurs from a German submarine."
http://www.snsk.no/internet/en/historie/viktige_arstall.htm

Hmm... so, a landing party, or shore bombardment? Either way, the U-Boat number elludes me. Any more ideas anyone?<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I have a membership there, but have never posted anything. I only signed up to view content but seldom visit there. Still, it is a good site and I do commend it to others, but as with any forum, conduct yourself within the rules and you'll be alright. Problem many of us encounter is that we just click yes without reading the rules. Cries of "free speech" are misplaced, as such forums are in reality private arenas. Just walk into any "public" place, like a night club and try to be verbally "different" and see how long you last. Although such places are open to the public, they are in reality privately owned and as such, the owners are free to make the rules, as long as the rules are not illegal [i.e. no women allowed, no blacks, Jews etc.]<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I wish this was actually enabled in SH3. When I first started playing, I decided to sneak into a Canadian port to sink everything in sight. Nothing was there, so I started bombarding the lighthouses and factories. Imagine my disappointment when I couldn't do damage to them. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif
