Wait till you see them scanning the skies for German bombers while listing.. One side would be doing the searchlight function, and another what it does in your pic. Works great with battleships

And Neptune said 'let there be light' and low and behold there was a beam of light beneath the waves.

Let this be a lesson to you...do not hide BENEATH a listing ship.....

I had encountered a convoy and managed to sink a few ships before the escorts found me. So I dove and slowly made my way toward one of the ships I had struck, but hadn't sunk (yet). Figuring that the escorts can't depth charge me if I was sitting beneath a stranded merchant...

Not a good idea. Oh, sure, the escorts couldn't reach me...they were circling and pinging away like mad, probably frustrated that their prey was so close, but yet untouchable. Hmm, now that I think of it, they probably sunk that merchant with gunfire to make it sink on me. Anyway, next thing I know is hearing the sounds of collision, so I raise the periscope to see what's going on, and what I see is the merchant right in front of my scope, grinding and banging against my uboat hull.

Then messages start coming in...Men down on deck....critical flooding....a quick check of the depth meter, and I am going past 70 meters and dropping fast. Next moment I am informed that my uboat was destroyed by flooding....

Actually, it was rather funny when I thought about it...having a merchant sink on top of you, and pull you down at the same time with it...

And that wasn't the only time something like that happened to me. Another time I had torpedoed a DD that was racing toward me at 30 knots. In desperation, I fired an acoustic torpedoe and dove. I had barely cleared 20 meters when I learn the torpedo had hit, so I slowed, and maintained my current depth, figuring the DD was done for. Yup, it was done for, and sinking fast bow first...next thing I know is I'm hitting it as its making its death plunge and being pushed down by its weight...

I know this is a little off topic, but I once hid under a disabled Bogue to get away from the escorts... it didnt work. The bastards waited me out. They just didn't wanna let that Bogue go.
