It all depends on what year you're planning on starting. 1 Flotilla is based in Wilhemshaven, so you exit directly into the area of the English Channel/North Sea. I'm pretty sure you get assigned a type II boat if you go there in 1939. 7 Flotilla is based in Kiel, which is on the back side of Denmark. So, sailing out involves a trip northeast out of the harbor, east till you get to the main channel, north to the tip of Denmark, and then back west. It takes about 3 days to make the trip. But, you start with a type VIIB boat. I started in 7 Flotilla. It's 4 Dec now, I've completed two patrols, and sunk about 60,000 tons of allied shipping. The Halifax/Liverpool convoy route seems to be very active. I've found two large unescorted convoys there so far.

good luck bob! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I personally started with the 1st flotilla. with a type IIA boat. I like the type II, limited range, but makes up for it in dive speed and agility underwater.. plus, this way u get to experience most of the subs throughout the war as time goes on http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
