Deafened by the nearby explosions the crew had to resort to sign language to communicate.

Here we see the international sign for "enemy aircaft spotted!"

Actually, it's quite a common graphics bug, I've seen it numerous times. There is no hard and fast rule as to when it occurs but I think it may be linked to pausing the game immediately after the bridge crew appears on the conning tower, or when you come out of TC, and switch to bridge view. The first thing the crew does is make "raise binoculars" move when they start to get rendered; if you pause before that move is complete they may be "frozen" once you re-start the time running. Once or twice I even saw it on the "end patrol" sumary screen when the camera does a fly-past of the boat, after hitting Esc at high TC from the Nav map..<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

The last thing I heard as the British boarded my boat, "Boot hoch halten sonst wird keiner gerettet!"....Keep the boat afloat or no one will be rescued! My war was over....

Nah... when you come out of TC and head up to the bridge, the watch is acting as if they've been alert this whole time. The sound of the dogs being loosened on the hatch leading to the bridge was the alarm for the watch crew to spring up and stick their binoculars in their face! It's a time honored Naval tradition to act busy when brass is around, but then skate-off when they leave.

I've been caught sleeping during a General Quarter's (Battle Stations) drill back when I was a young sailor. Half of my division was down in the magazines when the Command Master Chief decided to check on the old Weapon's Department to see if we were playing along with the rest of the team (ship). What he saw was me, almost all of my fellow junior sailors from my division, my Leading Petty Officer (LPO), my division Chief (E-7) and my Division Officer (DIVO) sacked out on top of our bomb stacks. I didn't get in trouble, but my DIVO got the butt chewing of his life from the Weapons Department Head (WEPS).<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

What were you Senior, part of the Air Wing? If you were ship's company, then certainly your GQ station was aft in AM4 divisions jet tunnel?

Otherwise, you're right... all the Air Wing did was get in the way of the ship's company folks and it was best just to stay inside their shops... snoozing the drill away. They ONLY thing they were good for was to help rig the barricade.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Yeah, part of the airwing. Flight Deck Coordinator for the detachment.

Oh, and incidentally, we also did a bang up job of FOD walkdown. Sheeesh, rigging the barricade indeed. Some of my guys could even have been used as chocks... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Here's to the uninitiated about FOD. It stands for Foreign Object Damage. It's anything and everything that can be sucked up into a jet's intake and it must be picked up. What they do on an Aircraft Carrier is gather everyone who's not currently undertaking essential maintenance duties and anyone from below decks who wants a breath of fresh air.

They all gather at the bow of the flight deck in a straight line and walk slowly back towards aft, looking at the deck for anything loose (ie: ball bearings, cotter pins, coins, ect.). Otherwise those items could damage/destroy millions of dollars with of equipment, let alone be a missile hazard to personnel.


Here's my short list and categories of what I found while partaking in various FOD walkdowns:

Funniest: Fish (from a waterspout)
Gross/Sickening: A used condom
Interesting: A tooth
Scariest: Lead mercury from an AIM-9M sidewinder that fell off it's wingtip station
Weirdest: A dog's foot on a necklace chain<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I've got this a couple of times on screenies, on both occasions the message "She's going down" had just been given - I think you'll find the spread arms is the signal for ship sunk.
