...while chancing the Dover straits...I beheld a tempting C3...I was spotted!( how they saw my scope at night is beyond me) My sonar man told of rapidly approaching destroyers....

But I knew that they would not arrive before I put 2 torpedos into the beasts hide. I was lurking only 700 meters away when I let loose!

Well I fired my salvo...and the C3 took a slow plunge into Davy Jones lockers..

Next thing I know my sonar man is yelling destroyer approaching fast!( still at long range and still out of visual)


Ok...no problem..just dive and go silent...so I thought I would try the crash dive thingee...

Here's where it went all wrong...as before I hit the C key I had plotted my course and speed.
So I thought I would just get down faster...and still be on course..

Well the first thing happened was I went to flank...ok that's not so bad...but I didn't realize it reset the rudder to zero.

So guess where I crash dived to?
You got it! I ended up right underneath that slowly sinking ship...at first I thought that maybe a destroyer had warp engines and those intially impacts were depth charges...

But alas...my sub ended up getting crushed by it's last victim...so is that irony or justice?

Wheres my cat when I need her?!

I think this shows the value of pausing the game whilst answering the telephone. The thing was a sitting duck and I was going to finish her off.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v683/justinacarter/Oops.jpg

The closest thing to those that I've had was beeing too close to the merchant I was shelling with the deckgun and thus blew up together with my victim.... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

I learned the hard way to check my 3 o'clock and my 9 o'clock when doing periscope depth attacks in the middle of a convoy.

Oh, and guess it's only a matter of time before I get sunk by my own kill. My fave tactic at the moment, when I exfiltrate, is to steer into the convoy at flank when I go deep, then go silent, do a 90 degree turn and sneak out. It brings you fast down to safe speed, and the hunters can't do a thing with all those merchants panicking on top.

I've already been hit by my own torpedo !

fast steering just after firing an acoustic torpedo. Don't try this kids http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

The torpedo course had already an angle due to the gyro setting, and it locked on a ship of the convoy. Unfortunately, my manoeuvre brought me a bit too close of it, and the torpedo preferred my engine sound than the cargos ones http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif
