LTJG Fryatt's depth bombs straddle U-118. Splashes from his turret guns can be seen as the Avenger pulls away after the attack. Two crewmen can be seen seeking shelter behind the conning tower. U-118 is trailing oil after previous attacks by LTJG Stearns and LTJG Fowler.

View the site while you can! It seems to have only so much bandwidth available, so it may not work later in the month(it wasn't up yesterday or the day before or even last week! But it was up a couple of weeks ago).

God that last pic is chilling. Just think, there are crew men aboard trying to escape a fast sinking hunk of steel. (unless it was abandoned before... I hope so)

Great pics! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Maybe a mute point , but in that 1st picutre of the UBoats you see a guy in one tower with his back to the camera.

Now I don't know what height he is , but looking at him standing there and seeing him from just above waist height against the tower.

When looking a the storm video and other screenshots the crew are either small or the tower is higher than the one in the above post, and looking at the video it looks like if you took a picture of that crew from the same angle as the one in the post. All you would see of the crew would be head and shoulders..

Higher tower/Smaller men , or is the scale out?
