While on patrol something strange happened today.
I was submerged in my VIIB east of Hartlepool minding my own bussiness and waiting for sunset, when I heard some aircraft flying nearby.
So far so good. However, suddenly I heard an explosion that arose my curiosity (thanks to my state of the art german periscope which, apart of enabling me to see enemies in great detail, also makes it possible to actually HEAR them) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

As I looked through it, I saw this: http://i473.photobucket.com/albums/rr93/ossie1982/Explodingaircraft.jpg

I don't know what really happened (possibly two aircraft colliding with each other) but it looked great. I think I will sent BdU a message claiming the kill of an aircraft .... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

OK, here's a second screenshot confirming the collision of two aircraft: http://i473.photobucket.com/albums/rr93/ossie1982/twoaircraft.jpg

That's two kills I can claim to BdU. Uncle Carl can be proud of me ... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Hmmm... curious!

I've never noticed aircraft sounds from inside my submerged boat before. Not saying it doesn't happen, just never noticed one way or the other. It's been a long time since I played the stock version of SH3 though, so perhaps this is something that's been corrected in GWX.

You did well to capture the event on camera, that's for sure! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I'd say that is a one in a million shot!
Congratulations, bikedancer!

Bikedancer,
Are you sure you didn't accidentally fire those surface-to-air missiles that Socko had been fiddling around with on the Wintergarten?
