View Full Version : Any chance I will get Type IX?

05-29-2007, 10:54 PM
I'm playing the stock campaign and it's March 1943 (32 patrols completed) and I haven't been offered a type IX to command yet. Is it because I'm in the 1st Flotilla and other flotillas have it while mine doesn't?

Yes, that is the issue.

Transfer to Second Flotilla (Out of Lorient harbour) and you will be provided with an array of Type IX boats.

Do you think that boat is any good?

does it cost you renown to do this? And how exactly do you transfer?

Type IX cost at most 9000. As the end of the war it is down to 2000.
Transfers can be done using your desk phone.

And yes, I prefer the IX boats to the VII because of a relatively enormous range (IX/D2 especially) and a superior torpedo loadout. And the flak battery, which is a lot of fun in the stock game http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif If you do not like L'Orient harbor, you can always either a) trnasfer out of it elsewhere, you'll keep your boat, or b)change time compression near land to 64x either in cfg files or with commander. Hope that helps

Regarding the different boats; is it possible to upgrade from VIIB to VIIC just by changing the conning tower etc? And likewise, upgrading from a IXB to lets say IX/D2 when that becomes available? Or do you have to "buy" the entire boat? This would be nice to know, cause I dont want to spend renown on small upgrades on my VIIB, just to find the VIIC available next time in base, and then loose all my previous small upgrades.

When you upgrade to a new boat, all available updates are transfered/fitted.
