Why all you do is add a little bit of weight on the end that sinking of course!! Im up to my traditional bad deeds..lol...

On the serious note...i waited like 5 minutes and this ship wouldnt sink for anything even with the back deck going under in the waves...so i got tired of waiting and added a little weight...(not recommeneded early in your patrol as it does do quite a bit of hull damage lol)

Come here you!

Now that im wedged in there full power to engines! if your not gonna sink imma spin you till your dizzy and hope you run into shore cause you cant see straight..

whahah i knew that extra weight would help.

that is a lovely sight..too bad im covered in oil now.. lol..

You're just lucky you didn't get caught in the rigging. What a revoltin' developement that would have been.

Waiting for the storm to pass could take days, even weeks!!! I vote for the weight-adding tactic!

funny, I rammed a Costal merchent at ahead full in my VIIC and took no damage, neither did it.
Weird. I have realistic damage checked in realism settings too.

Also, here is the bill for the damage done to said U-Boat. Please make you payment on your way out.

I was out of bow torpedos after shooting a C2 with my last one, he kept going and only rode a little low in the water, so i pull up next to him, about 200 meters away parallel to him, and decide to cut in front of him to get an aft shot at him.

Big mistake.

I thought i was going to make it at first, but then his bow nailed me right at my midsection, i was going 20 knots, but i ended up going 3 when he hit me, and that was sideways. I was stuck for a good 5-6 minutes and finally it made sense to dive, so i dove, and got away from that murderous cargo ship.

I ended up sinking him with an aft torpedo, but he almost had me good, was gonna bring me to britain with him.

lol, I used all my torps from the IIA to sink a merchant and I got rid of its propellers but when I tried torpedoing it again all my torps bounced. So I moved my crew to the back of the ship and full speeded ahead and I bounced off of the ship. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif
