My first trip out with U-441 (mid 1943) and I got 2 big U.S. destroyers in the worst fog I have seen in-game ever, 1 troop ship, and a few tankers.

The mission is still in-progress and I have 2 torpedos left so hopefully I'll find another ship on the way home.

I'm heading home on the surface and the weather is beginning to clear so hopefully some weenie Sunderland will come cruising by. I have 3 Quads that want to say hello.

I LOVE my U-Flak. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Haha some weenie sunderland ... lmao Ark. I thought about getting a VIIC or VIIC/41 and upgrading it to a U-flak... i too am in 1943, Oct 1943 to be exact on my 30th patrol. I decided against it because the old U-51 VIIB is still running great. One question I had for you though... have you noticed any decrease in submerged performance with all those flak guns.. especially the one in the front?? You'd think it would slow the boat down underwater a little?? I love the U-flak though, it is like an armored fortress against planes.

I had a VIIC/42 in a previous campaign setup as a U-flak, no measurable performance loss either surfaced or submerged occured.

Hey, its Ark buddy! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif Long time no see. Dominico has a really nice forum setup. You should check it out. No flame wars over there. Plus, last saturday we setup for a wolf pack muliplayer game that was a blast. I'm thinking that we will do it again this coming up saturday. Would be nice to see you there!

Hmm... I've had a fair amount of success with my original 20mm machine gun, so 3 x Quads sounds very interesting. What sort of U-Boot can you get that sort of setup? (I'd like to start working towards it, and so am interested in ensuring I can get the right sort of U-Boot type for it.) Thanks, and good hunting...

Ah, It`s been lonely here without stormtroopers.
Good to hear from you Ark.

I had a flak U-boat but i changed it. I found quad`s not quite up to a job (too slow rate of fire).
I exchanged them for two twin fast firing 20 mm and one twin 37.
If I could have this configuration plus one twin 37 at the front, that would make an awesome
punch!
