View Full Version : How Hokum Escaped From Half of the British Fleet

Well not half, but more than I have before. I have no idea how I survived. I'm not using the harbor mod, just some of the eye-candy ones.

I like to go into ports and poke around and knock off a few docked ships. I went into Freetown, Gibraltar, and Portland with no problems. I thought I'd go into Halifax and see what's up, maybe catch some hockey or something.

Well, I was almost in, when I must have hit a net or something, cause a Trawler nearby came charging at me. Then all of the sudden 5 C-Class destroyers and some more trawlers swooped down on me like Gary Coleman on a $5 bill.

Next thing I know I'm running for my life, and my whole world looking like an underwater 4th of July. (I see the thread about C-Classes not having DC, but I swear these did, or maybe it was the trawlers ... who knows, it was chaos).

So I popped up my periscope and made a decision ...

CE: We've analyzed their attack, sir, and there is a danger. Should I have your ship standing by?
Hokum: Evacuate? In our moment of triumph? I think you overestimate their chances!

Hokum: Fire at will Commander.

I noticed this DD got a little too close, and he paid for it:

Meanwhile, the rest of his friends show up

€œHey, what did you do to my friend!?€

€œThe same thing I€m going to do to you, big boy!€

Funny thing on this one, the DD is STILL moving forward while half submerged on starboard

Then all these planes start showing up and blowing they heck out of everything around me. They must have dropped 474,000 bombs.

Strange thing is, during all this mess, the ships couldn€t find me. I€m scraping the bottom and tossing off decoys while they circle me and ping pong me to death. Here is a cool shot of me circling a sunken DD.

I somehow got away with 63% hull integrity and no lives lost. Completely lost the rear torpedo department sometime during the battle.
