I've taken 8 hours of pounding from these 2 - I assume 'elite' DD's, and am starting to really get peeved http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif.
Not sure how much damage to my hull, so I tell the CE to set depth = 180 (currently at 160) and head east at 2 knots. He gives me this wierd look, so I look back at him and nod my head.
So down we go .. once again.. 170 and the CE Now really complains about safety depth.. I spin around and glare at him - "Do you want to die up there, or take your chances down here ???" I say to him - "Continue as ordered".

There is and immediate effect on the Pings at 180. They're much softer and only last on or 2x. I had them ping around me for at least 10 pings and did not pick me up. Up at 160m they'd get me within 6 pings.

Heading East and the DD's 'search-circle' is getting much smaller on my hydrophones http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif AT LAST.. I live to fight another day.

I on the other hand didn't get away again.

I started a new career. (I start way too many.) Anyway, its 1939 and I have a bran new type VIIB Uboat. Just upgraded from a type II.

There I was in AN something not far from the british coast, where I had already sunk 3 C2's and a Armed Trawler. All without using a single torp.

I had even shot down an aircraft.

But then another aircraft comes and manages to actually get me with his bomb. IN 1939!

Dammit, I had all my crew out trying to control flooding in two compartments but I couldn't outrun the flooding. I was hopeful but alas after about 3 minutes I lost the race.

Ahh well, at least I didn't have too much time to get attached to the new captain.

That makes 2 Kaluns lost and one dead crewman since I started playing. (My flack gunner died before I sank.)

a U-boat made out of BRAN, what will those crazy german engineers think of next!

Well, at least your crew was regular every morning...

...yes another (p)otty thread!
