View Full Version : Sweet - A convoy without escort, glass sea

Left Brest on start of Patrol No. 38, entered western approches to English Channel, on my way to AE-way-the-heck-99 near Iceland. At the Channel got the "Merchant Schiff Gesichte" call, and they kept coming. A convoy - no escorts in sight. About 15 merchants (C-2, C-3, two troopships and about four small merchants at 6 knots, no zig-zag).

Wow. (About this time, my son called and said he was ready to be picked up across town. I told him I would drive to get him "in a minute.")

Fired all torpedos (submerged) from about 600m to 1,500m, some Fat's. Beautiful. Six merchants are toast. I back out a range to about 2,000m and surface for the deck gun. Expended all my deck gun ammo (that takes a while, doesn't it?), but six more merchants are sunk.

About then, a squadron of (looked like PBY's) show up, so I get to man the Flak. Got only one of them, and then thought I'd better pick up my son. He was impatiently waiting, but understood when I explained.

Life is good, isn't it?

I do wish I have a reasonable kid like that. Try saving next time. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I believe you are allowed to save right in the middle of an encounter.

Yep. Once they have been randomly generated, they won't be erased by a save. Just don't revert back to a save before they generated.
