I was patroling in this lovely weather on ED91, crew taking sun on deck. Radio operator gave radar contact warning, closing fast. Ordered men below deck and dived using snorkel. Still contact closing up fast. Rised observation scope and take peak, it was yank destroyer steaming full speed, i had spotted me. Lowerer scope and gave order to silent running. Now happens the weird stuff!!

Destroyer slowed down, pinged couple of times. Next event viewer popup windows opens, and the destroyer where diving to depths... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif WTF !!! i didnt shoot, it just sunked itself...

SH3's ships have very vulnerable hulls, even an Illustrious class carrier sank (went down slowly by the bow), after ramming my sub and having it drag all the way from the carrier's bow to stern, like a can opener.

It is not always possible to figure out why some enemy ships sink "by themselves" or why you sometimes see a torpedo strike and your crew cheer when you haven't open fire yet and there are no aircraft around and no other subs in the game (so they say). There is a mysterious "higher power" at work in the game, just be thankful this "entity" is on your side. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thats allso the funny part, i was over 500m away. Destroyer was searching the area where it had last contact on me. It dropped couple of depthcharges.

Sorry i dont have screencapture, because i was myself so surprised what happened. But im 100% sure i didnt ram me. Because i checked my hull int was 100%.

believe me http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

I've seen a destroyer sunk by it's own depth charges when sailing too slow to get out the way, as well as a destroyer cruising across the wake of another and and being blown up by that one's charges. Soooooo many reasons for it! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
