Ok. So I'm thinking im a tough guy a few minutes ago. Just sunk about 30000 tons. Heading back to base. I spot a destroyer. (being tough) Ill take that motha out with the deck gun at 4500 meter. Get a few shots in, took out its front guns. Then i start thinking wow im dead in the water. The destroyer is heading right toward me less that 500 meters full spead. I kick it hard to starboard, ahead flank. Too late, the destroyer rams the hell out of me, killing all aboard instantly. R.I.P. Ill have to start a new career. So fun.

I almost did 40000 in enemy merchants, it would actually be about 43000 counting the neutral merchant that I accidentally sunk http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif, sorry I have no exterior cam.

The last torpedo was in the stern, and I couldn't find any way to transfer it to the bow, so I found a Cargo during the night and missed the torpedo....shame on me.

Also, I would reccomend not to take on a destroyer with a deck gun. The 2 main reasons are: 1. It outguns you. and 2. It has a harder hull and will take longer to sink than a cargo.
I learned this the hard way, so you're not alone.

It could be worse you were on the bridge,commander of u-100 Joachim Schepke was killed when he was crushed by a bow of destroyer and his periscope shears.What you call nasty!

What was he Schepke thinking??. I was on the bridge seconds before. Then I jumped down in to the control room. BAM! lights flicked...game over.

Apparently the last thing he said to his crew was he`s going to past us by.He was in control room at the time and the last thing that went though his mind was the bow of an enemy destroyer,like I said nasty!

What an ****!

Near as dammit same thing happened to me, ******* watch officer did even see a huge dd pointing at us, apparently.

Had a really good patrol up the irish channel aswell.

Sunk one c2, one destroyer, one elco and shot down two aircraft.

I feel so abused....sigh!

I be back tomorrow though.

I sink an average of 15-20 merchants per patrol...

But i never ever take on a destroyer with torpedoes or deck gun unless its night, he is escorting a convoy and is travelling a perfect straight line. Otherwise its just not worth it.
