The only thing you can do is get the engine upgrades, and i suppose loose the deck gun to reduce drag.

Whatever you do you won't be going anywhere fast underwater without a typeXXI.
I think the most you'll get with anything else is 7 knotts max, and then you'll be making a lot of noise and you'll attract unwanted attention if it's close enough to hear you.

Yes Mr Torpedo. A red boat will always be faster too.

Sorry.. dont know about loosing the deck gun, or new towers and such.. or even painting your boat read.. but the most youll get underwater is 9 knots I believe with the typeix. Type xxi ya.. maybe 18 but not sure.. but does that matter? never saw action. Type vii's youll get 7-8. Type ii's 7. Thats it. No more. Never.

You are in error. I have been to 10 knots in most boats and more for a VIIB.

I am not going to tell you how I did it. Only that in stock game at 100% (I have been to 13+ knots at a lower realism.) realism you can do it.

Let me tell you that you can't do it for long and it isn't that much of a tactical boost. But other then that I will let you try to figure out how.


As for the original poster.

No addons affect you underwater speed in game. In WWII U-boats didn't go faster then they could on the surface. (Besides the XXI and other late ware superboats.)

Of course different conning towers and the presense of a deck gun really did make a difference of a handful of knots, this difference isn't in the game. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

There are a few valves around the boat with the same label - 'wasser'.
You need to open these together to get a rapid crash dive. This is an excellent DD avoidance tactic

I find that by ordering a crash dive, then openning all torpedo tubes (both outer and inner doors) and hatches gives me a real quick descent speed. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
