While on patrol in the English channel, I was just fine tuning my target solution on a Class C Destroyer that had no idea I was lurking beneath the surface. I was on target for a kill. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Suddenly !!!!......... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

The sound of aircraft.........scope down.....did they see me ? They were close. ****....my hydrophone operator tells me the target is changing course. The planes must have ratted me out. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Scope up, let's see where that Destroyer is going. Within seconds I see what looks like gunfire from the deck. My first thought was that the planes radioed my position and the destroyer was firing at my periscope (I was probably about 2000 metres at this point). I decided to leave the scope up to confirm as it didn't look like he was on an attack run. What I saw next was really cool. The airplanes I heard seconds earlier were attacking the destroyer. They landed a couple hits, she caught fire, and sunk, while I watched from the scope. The aircraft then returned from the direction they came and I was able to confirm at that time that is was the Luftwaffe in a couple Me109s (I'm not sure if in real they attacked shipping like this but they do in SHIII). Only thing is, I was a little disappointed that they killed my target that I had lined up so nicely... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Just a little story for those that wonder if anything goes on in the SHIII world.

I had a similar incident happen to me last night.

On my way back to base, I run into a small merchant ship. So, I proceed to blast it with the deck gun. The ship was maybe two or three more shots from sinking when a squadron of German planes sweep in, and steal my kill !
I was so aggravated, I was thinking about shooting the bums out of the sky myself.

I just left the iceland area on one mission and seen several ships heading into the area but was low on ammo and was a long trek home so I sent in a contact report. A day later I seen two german warships pop up on the map heading in that direction. Why cant that happen all the time?
