So every time I get given AN55 for my patrol area I'll be pottering along at 512x time compression, I'll get a funny clanking noise and the next thing I know I'm on the death splash screen and 'U-boat destroyed due to flooding' message. There's a picture of my boat slipping under the waves. While I know a mine detonation would be pretty catastrophic for a u-boat I'd appreciate some idea of what happened.

It happens mostly in the southern half of the area and I'm running realuboat 1.43 by the way...

Well since upgrading to RUB 1.45 i always receive a little damage when trying to get into Loch Ewe. I always sneak in at 2knots and at periscope depht. I have betwee 2 and 4meters under the keel and every time I receive damage I raise the scope to look around. I have never seen any ships around when it has happened.

Maybe it is "killer whales" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

It must be a British submarine

Just had another run in with one of those... Though in this case I managed to get a glimpse of it. I was setting up for a convoy attack when it suddenly began to rain and visibility dropped to zero (well almost). Shortly afterwards I heard enginenoise at 9 o'clock and too late I saw the bugger. It looked like a C3 but I am sure it was that pesky Invisible again http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif. Sadly U-51 was lost with all hands after rubbing its hull against it... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

Or, you may be running into something like this:

Nah... not in my case. When I hit a subnet I either get stuck and have to surface to get out or I take some damage and ultimately die...

Yes AN55 does have minefields, as does the entire East Coast and Dover

These minefields have been done as close to historical as is practical. That is, the implementation dates, sizes and locations. If we don't know, it wasn't put in.

Um, if they are in Scuba gear, they aren't naked.
