So there I was, happily sailing out of Kiel in the VIIb in september 1st, 1939. Somewhere between Norway and Britain, the watch crew spotted a merchant, a nice C2. So there we are,

plotting an underwater attack. The flag on the ship seems to be red enough to look like British. So after my first torpedo shot of the war races towards the engine room, I follow it

with the external cam, with gauges turned off. As we get closer to the ship, i'm able to make out the flag. It has a nice big red double-headed eagle on it. Now, the double headed

eagle is the Russian emblem. As long as I know, USSR was "neutral" in 1939. After the first torpedo successfully destroys the ship, I

turn on the gauges. Hmmm, enemy unit destroyed... I then went into community help, and found out that the flag was Polish. Phew. Saved the captain the first embarassment of the war http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Yeah, I hate those predominantly red flags with small markings in low visibility. You have to get really close to positively identify them.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Violating the Hitler-Stalin pact ?

You would have spend the rest of the war scrubbing all kinds of little sea creatures from the hull of ships http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

hmm, I have a feeling that Hitler would have wondered what to do with you when he invaded the soviet union, two choises, 1: Hitler has to scrape off little sea critters from the bottom of a boat, or 2: give yer boat back. I'm guessing 2??<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
