My 5th war patrol out of Kiel in a VIIB assigned to sector AM54. I gun down a couple of C2s west of Scapa Flow, but get attacked by aircraft on the second one and receive hull damage down to 75%.

On the way to my sector I found several more large cargo ships and was routed to several large convoys NE of the Irish coast, but only got two ships out of convoys. All other ships were singles I found on the way and was able to get with my gun. Final tally:

1x Coastal Merchant
2x Small Merchant
6x C2 Cargo
1x T2 Tanker
3x C3 Cargo
-----
13 ships, total points 79797 (primes and nines). http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hell no! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

54%. I have the extra views available and don't want anything to do with manual TDC (in real-life the captain said "mark" and someone read off the mark on the periscope and someone else fed it into the TDC, so having a computer do it isn't unrealistic, imo).

But like I said, it was a lucky patrol. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Too bad the patrol with the best potential was ruined by my wastage of torpedos before learning the wonders of the magnetic exploder. In that, my 2nd patrol, I ran into TWO unescorted convoys of 16 ships each. (about 1/3 neutral).

I had already wasted 1/3 of my torps and half my gun ammo by the time I came across the first convoy. Not knowing better I remained submerged and wasted a few shots with impact exploders. But I got all the UK ships out of the 1st convoy, but only damaged a couple of ships out of the 2nd convoy.

This game rocks!
