Yesterday I watch "Das Boot" for X+1 times !!! I have noticed that the observation periscope is not implemented in the same position in the movie in comparison with the game.

In the game, looking forward, it is placed AFTER the tunnel to go into the conning tower. In the movie, it is BEFORE the conning tower tunnel.

Does somebody knows who is right, the movie or the game ?

Were you operating the same sub as in the movie? Possible it changes on different subs? Dont know.

Yes, I take care of that.

It was The VIIC of the single mission "Gibraltar", which is, I believe, an eye-blink to the movie, because it is the U-96 and the date is December 1941.

I am no expert, not even a layman, but if you stand on your bridge and activate your periscopes (in game), the obs scope is always forward and the attack scope is always behind.

I first noticed this with the command room in the type IIa and d. the obs persicope is far to the rear of the hatch to the conning tower, and moving to the tower the attack scope seems to be forward of that. The interior layouts seem to be a bit askew. No big deal, but it's sure to bug some.

As for Das Boot, I have no idea how accurate it is. I would like to compare the interiors with the Type VII's in the game, but I loaned my copy to a guy at work and never got it back. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

the observation scope is in the spot where the holder of the attack scope should be whicj isent modeld . the obs scope should behind the helsman . das boots interieur is realistic becuase the makers copy,d it from the last still existing tpye viic.
