While I manned 20mm anti-aircraft gun, as I keep tracking Short Sunderland as get gun reload as it flew right overhead, sudden see other Short Sunderland crash into it. My first reaction http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif as see both spinning down above my u-boat was "Will they crash on us" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif Lucky, as both of them were crash on both side of u-boat. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif I can not get that event out my head all day what I saw. I wish I can save screenshots. I want to post that story to see if anyone had see like that while playing SHIII?

I was escaping the Med in my XXI boat with the entire RN looking for me, Since I had Bold 4s I was able to get them distracted with those while I slipped away at 80m. Anyway, about 5 KM later I come to periscope and raise the Observation scope and start a 360 sweep, when I hit 180 I see a giant fireball, so I pause. Go to outside view and run over to where the explosion came from. Roughly what happened is two Catalinas (I think) crashed into each other, since there was one still falling out of the sky. When I unpause I see it smash right into a Flower escort, bounce up, go about 20 yards through the air and crash down on an Elco.

I didn`t see a mid-air but on one engagement i came acros a small convoy with two escorts i torpedoed a c2 and dived under the convoy and came to periscope depth on the far side to see the two escorts attacking each other the dd sunk the flower and the went off on a huge circle leaving me enough time to surface, finish off the c2 and sink two others before it came back

Hi MrHoward

Thank you for post that screenshots.

Hi archer49d

Oh that's funny. I hadn't see damage effect when plane crash into ship or u-boat...Does it cause serious damage? I think I saw one of post talked about plane crash into u-boat cause serious damaged.

I had a plane crash into my boat during the Naval Academy mission. It did some serious damage.

Happy hunting!
