Ok now this is downright wierd. Last patrol I had to go around Scapa Flow to get the atlantic and in doing so I got attacked continuously from about 200km out until I gave up and went at flank speed due north to try to escape. I was attacked by mostly Swordfish but there were a few hurricanes in there as well. In the end my flak gunners shot down 17 swordfish and 1 Hurricane. I lost 5 seamen, all of which were manning the flak gun. I was first attacked with 100% hull integrity, after my last attack I had only 17%. BTW I'm only in December 1940 and all airkills were by the AI, I tried some but didn't hit a thing.

That'll show the RAF who's boss!!!

I bow to you -- my gunners can't even hit the roof of the sub pen. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

pfft, they never going to hit me. "flank speed, hard to port, hard to starboard... don't just stand there, use the 88mm too" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif.

I was heading towards Scapa Flow in 1940 and kept getting attacked by swordfish aircraft. This had not happened on previous patrols. I figured that there was a carrier around. I dived to avoid the aircraft and approached by darkness, infiltrated scapa flow and sure enough there was an illustrious carrier anchored there. Once I sunk that the swordfish were gone. I infiltrated scapa on my next patrol and found nothing. I have since opened the campaign in mission edior and found that the scripted layer puts capital ships in scapa at certain dates. For example in early oct 1939 the royal oak is there.

USA - If you not in a fight from the start then your not in a fight at all

USSR - Switched sides so they don't count

Partisans - Hackers

My first patrol I was assigned the area just to the right of Scapa Flow, so I figured I'd run up through the Channel and go up the east coast of Britain to save time. I got harassed by Hurricanes so much I had to alter course farther out, since they obviously knew where I was heading as I never once turned off course to avoid them. I got sick of diving one time and had my piss-poor flak gunner have a go at a lone Hurricane that had found me, and he drove him off! Half an hour later he came back with his mates and got me down to 80% integrity before I got under. They're like wasps! I stick to the west coast now, much safer in 1940/41.

I think the plane AI needs tweaked. At one point I killed 6 sunderlands with my flak gunner for no loss.

Done the mad zig zag and they all missed with bombs and depth charges.

Shooting down 6 of them tho? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_redface.gif

Well they must of Hit you, you said you only had 17% hull when it was all over!!

Sounds like you should be a Destroyer Captain not a sub captain. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
