In my fourth patrol I was assigned to a sector in the north sea near the british coast. I decided to go around the UK instead of through the english channel. On my way I found a big convoy and I managed to sing two tankers (T2 and T3) and a coastal freighter for 27k tons. Still having to patrol my sector I decided to save my remaining 7 torpedoes. Boy! Near Scapa Flow, I found two small freighters which I sunk using my deck gun. After the first one, I think he radioed my location because I have been harrassed constantly by planes and destroyers. I have been depth charged repeatedly but my alert crew has managed to spot the enemy before they could do lots damage. I have been sprinting when I get depth charge explosions to get some distance between the tin cans and my boat. Depth and low speeds are your friends...
I am returning from my patrol sector, with 55% hull integrity and 2 casualties, looking for trouble so that I can spend the rest of my torps. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif

This game has a great AI!!! I don't think I will get tired of this sim any time soon since it keeps coming up with new surprises and challenges.
Great program Ubi. Thanks http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
