There is smoke escaping from the u-boat when diesel motoren is engaged ?

In fact,I think this is a detail more acurated in U-571 than Das Boot.

Thats the indoor BBQ grill smoke stack they have for all those sausages they have to cook for the crew. Everyone knows that. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Remember that normally the exhaust is below the waterline iirc.

In "Das Boot" (the book) diesel's smoke was reported: when the u-boat was in front of convoy, the captain used this smoke as a sort of fog shield against detection.
A strange trick, that he used in poor visibility.

Hi there Dinamic. The DevTeam hasn't ever mentioned that, and I don't think that it is a very important fact. But it's still a nice detail.

By the way, have you joined the 24th Flotilla yet? You will see it as a very useful place and even a good forum to meet new and good comrades/friends.

Thanks for your answers.

I will post this discussion in the new developers questions.

-Mix-Martes, Yes I will pass to the 24th flotilla someday. Thanks

Bye Comrades
