View Full Version : My first XXI kill :)

Bought the Type XXI today, which left me poor- 29 renown left http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif But MAN is it different from the IXb i had most of my career. Today I scored my first hit with it, right beside Bergen


That's too bad that it only has 2 AA machine guns.. I loved the U-Flak configuration of the old trysty IXb. Hopefully i find some convoys, it's May of 1944, the war is almost over

May '44? Or is that a typo and you meant May '45? If you're in May '44 you've got a year to play with that new toy.

No, no typo, its may of 1944. My meaning is, its less than a year left, and with the long patrols i'm having and stay-in-port time, its not gonna be many patrols with the new toy http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Have you tried the Nibelung sonar to track and attack your target? How does it work?

Can't wait to drive an electoboot....but it will be many years since I started with a "einbaum" in 1939. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Congrats I'm impressed that you we're able to afford that sub it's so expensive!! you must have really racked up the renown or a least saved most of it! Enjoy and Happy hunting! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Yes there is a whole world between the VIIC and the XXI. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

LOL when i bought the boat, i had 30029 renown http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif dead on. So it left me quite poor after that purchase. So i didnt have time or money to buy the Nibelung sonar yet. I'm currently tracking a convoy in HUUGE waves, heavy rain and medium fog, in hopes of getting enough renown from kills. Doesn't work that well. All i was able to do is sink 2 DD's, 3 small merchants and a C3, all with 2 ZaukonungI torpedoes and 8 pattern torpedoes. I guess i should've let the weather clear up a bit, but i was too anxious. Besides, that boat can follow the convoy in the MIDDLE of it underwater. Gotta love it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I played around with them in single missions. The advances it made were astounding.

I love the XXI, but I've only used it in single missions.
Yesterday I sank all tree Revenge class battleschips in the Barham mission.
