View Full Version : U-123 MIA

07-01-2005, 09:19 PM
Last transmission received by U-123 indicated she was ready to engage a huge convoy in grid BF 14. No news since then.

The same day Bristish Navy reported the sinking of a U-Boat south of Ireland by a destroyer escorting convoy OB 16. Intelligence reported that around same time also, convoy OB 16 lost 2 tankers at dusk from u-boat attacks.

We assume that the u-boat involved was U-123 as all u-boats in that area have since then reported or returned to base.

Well my U-123 didnt come close the career of the real historical U-123 who had a much better fate.

Funny thing is last career was with U-53 and did 20 missions without a scratch while the real U-53 was sunk in 1941 without achieving great success.

Now on to 5th career!

I had U-123 my first campaign

First mission, returned to base, maneuvering around the docks a little too fast, ran into the pier and sunk my boat, campaign over, no ships sunk... I bet Reinhard Hardegan rolled over in his grave =D

Not likely, since he is still alive. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
