Ok, so while doing my history project, I found out that after U-47 sank the Royal Oak, the

east entrance to Scapa flow was sealed off with a concrete wall. Just out of curiosity, I

went to Google Earth and zoomed in on the area.. Tell me if this is what i think it is:

It certainly looks like a dam.

I went to scapa flow on google earth also after forum member "doug.d" was talking and showing pictures of how he was using his deckgun FROM OUTSIDE of Scapa Flow to hit moored battleships...

I measured the across ground distance to see if it was feasable. But I didn't know the max range of his deckgun,....SOoooo?

Do you think that's why in SH3 you can't use this entrance? The developers saw the wall as well.

No.

Maybe.

But if you look at the south enterance, you will notice there is a second way on the west side. That is the island "flotta" is an island.

In the game it isn't an island of its own and you have to pass it on the east. If they mapped scappa flow off sat pix you would think that they would have made that an island.

If you use Grey wolves mod, the east channel enterences to Scapa flow are open complete with sunken block ships. They are very impressive, its worth a trip to scapa just seem them and re-live the Prien experience.

If you think it is the Churchill Barriers (http://www.simontreasure.name/html/burray_.html) then yes.

Yes, I have seen them, even took a couple screens. Unfortunately, I had to uninstall the GW mod, since it bogs down quite abit, my computer can't handle it. But yes, they made a very nice passage there.
