Its 1941 i had the mission to patrol with my IX-C a area in the carribean sea weather was ok when i left port and i were just cruising slowly through the atlantic,because of fuel conservation.

Near the spanish coast the weather got really bad...storm,rain and fog..visibility 300-500 meters. I continued and a day later i got the report that the we are picking up radar signals.
I saw nothing because of the bad weather and normally merchants dont have rader,so i went to 20 meters and then stoppd to listen if soemthing is going on.

But before i went to the hydrophone,i checked the tactical map..mabye my sonarman already had them caught.
Then the adrenaline rushed in..around 10 contacts some obviosuly escort destroyer,becasue of their position in the convoy. But then i checked the convoy and it was odd,that only a small convoy was that much protected.I then rushed to the hydrophone,to listen myself.Then it hit me,that i stumbled over a taskforce. There were three contats,which loud and fast propeller sound,but much deeper.

This was real exiting,becasue i never met a warship (exept destroyer e.g.) in the game and i just knew (fro other older sub games) that these suckers are too fast for me...but i had luck and they had to pass by my position.

i went lower and made schleichfahrt to the position,i gueessed ,i would have a good shot. The destroyer were thrownig bombs,but not even close. I dont know how they got me,but they really were n danger at all. But the big ships were runngin zick zack,whcih really made it hard to intercept them in the soup i was in.

Some minutes later,they finally got very close..to i went back to periscope depth,to check whats coming at me.

It was a infiltrator carrier ( forgot the name..but it was the bigger of the british ones)..i wanted to set my torpedos,wehn i saw soemthing coming out of the fog behind left from the carrier. It was the King George V Battleship..even better i thought and i was totally exited now. I aimed at it and went to the tactical card. I manually corrected the automated settings and shot for eels onto the ship....not in a salve though,because i have bad experience ,that one or more blow up too early.

Anyways...some seconds later (the ship was only 350 meter away ) the first explosion hit midships....then the 3 other came in and the ship blew up in a fireball! My crew and i cheered...unfortunaly i forgot tha i have headphone on,because my wife was sleeping..so i had to pause the war,to improve the domestic diplomatic relation we have...i can handle all kind of natins in my sub,but my sub will sink really fast when my wife goes ballistic ....and she doesnt even need a deckgun. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

Well back to the war and i watched the ship sink...when the other contact came in..the Battleship Revenge..i think it was the same class then the King George...anyways,my front tubes were empty,so i turnd around As fast and quit as possible ,to maybe hit the propeller of thi ship. I made it into a acepptabel possiotn ald let the 2 rear torps find their way to the ships rear.
This time i had no luck ,the other exploded under the propellers ,the other ones missed.

Well still, i was happy and went to 100 meter schleichfahrt,to get away from the destroyers,which really werent any danger at all. Probably the bad weather.

I made it out without problems and went on with my patrol...not in the carribean but instead between spain and the UK. The weather was terrible all the time...soemthimes ti was that ahrd,that waves pushed me 13 meters deep....but my watch never left their positions. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Unfortunaly nothing happend for a long time. The weather was very bad and i barely made speed.

Eventually,i stumbled over a sitting C" and sunk it with 2 eels.

Later the month near the UK i made radar conact ..again...with a convoy /thats what it showed me ,wehn i clicke don the contact). But it was only 3 three Destroyer and 1 slightyly bigger ship..cruising along in star formation.

One Destroyer sunk suddenly...dont know why,but i guess the storm. They didnt noticed me and so we all went our ways.

Mayn days alter,still terrible storm and fog ..at the end of my patrol i sunk a coastship..but thats it. Had to go back to port,becaue the Diesel was low.

Never had so bad and long weather. Too bad,my tonnage wasnt higer,but still i got a final of 46k.

Was my weirdest patrol ever..and even though the weather was terrible and hunting was nearly impossible ,the meeting with the impressive ships are reward enough..especially the kill http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Even though the game still has alot of bugs ,i love it to death and since weeks ,i only play SH3.

(offtopic: even though i did all ,what ppl and tech suport recommended.like new install of direct X,closing all background programms,i still get this gfx errors. But i noticed,that you just have to click the windows key,and then go back to the game and the error is gone. But will come back sooner or later.Thought let you know that there is a better way then to resart the game.)

Thanks for reading.
