Ok,ive been playing this game since it came out,and one of the things i didnt like is that you cant have your AA guns,deck guns manned and have a lookout crew. I havent been attacked by planes much before because i mostly play the early war,for kicks however i jumped into April 1943. Planes every two seconds.


One of them jumped me,and in the confusion im not quite sure what happened.anyway after one flak crew got killed,i sent up another one,but somehow i also had a lookout crew? Is it a glitch or have i just not been doing something right? the crew roster shows them both at full efficiency,

I've always wondered this too. Why not man the guns and a have a full watch? My guess is, if you have to man the AA guns in real life you dont want a conning tower full of targets. Usually if they had to man the AA guns it was because the sub was stuck on the surface. Diving is the best defense against aircraft.

My theory is that if you have at least one 2 cm cannon firing at the sky - you certainly do not want more people around it than you have to!

I successfully and easily managed to evade military service, but common sense tells me that a situation where you man the FLAK and aim it (loaded or unloaded) at the watch officer (or any other member of the crew) would be completely unrealistic, unacceptable, and probably result in the gunner being ordered to clean the head for a week.

IRL, I'd expect the WO to be standing next to, or behind the gunner, and with no one else being allowed on the bridge.

A weapon is only a toy when it's found in a game.

Cause the guys manning the AA guns are the ones that was on watch?

I don't think subs normally was sailing around knowing aircraft would attack them, so that they could wage war on RAF having everything manned on deck.

It was either quickly man the guns and shoot or it they had time enough to dive they did so instead ...

But this is a sim, a piece of software and it uses standard routines and when manning a section it takes men from the resting compartments and then takes away the other guys. watch crew -&gt; flack, watch -&gt; gun, electric &lt;-&gt; diesel. weird things seem to happen from time to time if a compartment is damaged.

Like diving and having the watch crew still up there, and when you surface they die or, you have a severely damaged watch tower, you send a repair crew there, they repair the damage, and when they are done and everything is fine they throw themselves on the floor and die.

There is like a mile long list of examples of wierd things happening when the sub is damaged.
