Anyone else witnessed anything like this?. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif
There I was sailing along on the suraface in the habitual force ridiculous go on forever gale one evening when I get a submarine spotted.
Intercept course plotted on an on and off contact, waves often 3 foot over the watchcrew and a mix of visual/sound contacts.
Well blow me down............. its a type V11C. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
Could this be Thompsen? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif.....nah, surely not but it was a fully manned flak boote sailing merrily along http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/inlove.gif.
I went close and waved my regards but the stiff upper lipped sods didn't wave back http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif.
Stuck around for a bit before resuming course, still no waved goodbye's and thought that was cool!
Next thing I know up comes a radar warning, moving quite fast so I think its obviously an aircraft and then instantly think Flak Boote 500 metres away, all guns manned?. could be interesting http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif.
I dived to ensure my safety - as you do - went to external cam and tracked over to said flak boote who as I arrive gets lit up like a rabbit in the headlights. Its guns instantly open up, 2 seconds later it explodes. All the guns/crew are gone as it slows then go's down by the stern http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif.
I pan around and find a Sunderland turning away which I avoid by staying at 50metres for an hour on ahead slow while I ponder what I've just seen.
The Flak boote was fully manned including bridge, not sure I've seen that before.
When I got close it did the lets not hit each other shimmy to avoid impact with me including going backwards.
It engaged the aircraft with all guns albeit very briefly, if it had been a dived AI boat couldn't it 'fire' torps at an enemy contact?.
I was amazed at the whole incident to be honest.....didn't know the AI could do this never having seen it or anything like it before.
I went snappy happy with the screenshots, just need to learn how to post them.

Please post them if you can. We'd like to see 'em.

To post screenshots, you need to upload them to an image host such as Photobucket or Image Shack. You will find a link under the pic you uploaded that starts with [IMG]. Copy it, and them paste it directly to your post.

definitely a V11C.
Wer Da!.....

Hope these work.......
From time of illumination of the UBoat to bomb impact no more than 2 seconds, as soon as it was lit up it opened fire with everything. No AI radar then and the watch crew got caught napping or they'd have known or seen it coming despite the heavy weather.
Still stunned at having watched it..

Oh well, nearly!.......
Texts a bit awry from the images but I'm sure you get the gist of it and 1 Image missing...

Nice pics. They posted well. Kind of sad seeing the end of a Kamerad and his boat. If you hadn't submerged, you might have suffered the same fate, and the Sunderland would have two kills instead of one. That was close.

Hey Mottie, what mods do you have running? Thanks.

09-17-2007, 04:01 AM
Wow your game is really really dark http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Stock GWX night time? I modded a little bit more light into my GWX

09-17-2007, 02:02 PM
I'm running GWX through Commander, I've got Flavoured to taste final, type 9 open hatch, reduced positive bouyancy and just installed racerboys SH4 effects for SH3.
Not proficient enough to start playing with light settings etc and no time to learn.

Now I know - screenshot of the month here I come!.
