When I was in Port Last. I Promoted A WO To Flak Gunner, And Since I Haven't Been As Hesitant To Take On Planes. Now ,So Far On This Patrol Ive Downed 16 Planes. MY QUESTION Is, Are They Of Any Value On The SCORECARD At The End Of The Patrol??????? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Quite a bit, as I discovered when my Uflak started shipping out in 1943.

What do you do to attract planes, just cruise on the surface during the day? I've been trying to be stealthy during the day and I haven't seen a plane in 10 patrols. My flak gunner is getting tired of just shooting up deck cargo http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I have the same question. I could sail on the sames to London and not meet an enemy aircraft!

Depends on the year and location, obviously.

My favourite hunting grounds are in Marinequadrat AM34 (north of Scotland, where the water is still moderately shallow).

In 1940, there are very few destroyers, but I get attacked often by aircraft - e.g. every day, and several times a day! Unfortunately, I've only a single 2cm Flakzwiling, so not a lot of success in shooting them down... yet.

42 and onwards you get quite busy from cuba and up along the american coast....just go bopping along on the surface and you'll get waves of 4-6 airunits every 10-20 minutes....the helmsmen get rather annoyed with my: go up,no down..oki now you can go up....and now down again....http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It Seems That If You Leave The Radar Running All the Time, They Can Home in on It, And Bah-Da-Bing!!!!!!! Good Luck, Sail On http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif
