View Full Version : countermeasure?

how about adding the ability to load oil and other things into the torpedo tube to fool pursuit vehicles....?

Yes please! (http://www.uboatwar.net/equipment.htm#Bold%20Decoy)

Another great idea for a full-priced add-on pack. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

No, No, and.. NO with the current oil prices. I refuse to pay for an add-on the current Brent price

I agree with you flekr (thus I don't know anything about petrol rationing in Germany at those times).

Explanation for those who may need it: Another Corto's weird humor. I was refering to Zig's post... trying to associate the possible cost (magnified of course) of an add-on to the current oil prices

I'm sure the oil used is quite old, black, and sticky to make the limeys on the surface feel really good about themselves.

Would you also be shoving dead crewmen into the tube? :P

You can always throw Mylo42's neighbours from the tubes ..dead or alive http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

No need to have to shoot oil out of the tubes. Just add an option to pump engine bilge to sea. In addition to the fuel oil subs carried they also carried mucho lubricating oil for the deisels that had to be changed out every so often to keep sea water from diluting the oil and causing engine seizures at sea. Couldnt think of a better way to reuse the sludge myself http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif well except maybe getting desperate when out of torps and hosing a flaming stream at some poor fishermans boat.

Perhaps the diluted lubrication was used to grease up the torpedoes.
