View Full Version : Fishing Boat Sniper

10-17-2005, 07:54 PM
For those of you who may doubt the tale of the armed fishing boats, I present these photos. That guy was sitting up there firing away at my little boat. It was too rough for me to man my AA gun, so I tried ramming him, with no luck. It was strange to see his boat suddenly slam on the brakes and magically reverse to match my every move, so that I could never get the bow to slice into him. After a while of this, I just gave in, dove and sailed away. Here are the pics:

I used the term sniper loosely. It freaked me out the first time it happened. I started taking tracer rounds and thought maybe there was another ship that I hadn't spotted, but it was that guy sitting up there with his MG. He's playing it safe, wearing his life jacket.

That is so halarious! Can I make an avatar out of that guy?

Is your game modded or do these fishing boat gunners come straight out of the box? I didn't come across one of of those yet. I think i'm on my 25th patrol in April 1942 now.

Ah, you've discovered the ultimate secret weapon of the Royal Navy....
"Harpoons with incendaries..." makes them look like tracers. The good ole days of the longbow!

edt: Actually the harpoon gun is usually installed right on the bow, so this must be another gun of sorts.

LOL! Cool. Back when I used to play Janes WWII Fighters there were reports of people seeing UFO's. A strange disc would appear out of nowhere then zoom away out of sight. I played thousands of hours on that game and never saw the UFO. But there are people who swear it's in there.

Sounds familiar.

I remember having read about a sighting of an Adolf Hitler model with his feet stuck in a cement block sitting on the ground of a certain harbor and making bubbles.

I think i even saw a screenshot of it, but i don't know wether it's true or if it was just fake.

Tough little bastard! Well SHIII would be more interesting if i could see something unusyally in it, but SHIII is sure good game even whitout eastereggs.

I've been playing with Real u-boat for a long time, so I don't suspect it. Two newer mods which I've recently installed are the latest harbour traffic mod and parts of the UnChange Real U-boat mod, not to change a lot, just a few things. Other than that, I'm stumped as to how this got in. Unless one of the mod designers slipped it in and wants to "confess" we are left to guess. I did install the heavy version of the harbour traffic mod, if that makes any difference, can't see how.

So far, I've only seen the fishing boats armed. On my latest patrol, I sank a tug boat with my flak gun, but it did not fire back. I've had tugboats fire on me in mid 1940, but not so far in 39. I also encountered an unarmed trawler, which did not attempt to fire on me, so I'm guessing it's just the fishing boats that got beefed up.
