Bordeaux has it... i think it is the 12th Flotilla. But stay away from the IXD2. Due to a bug it's stuck in the bunker wall in Bordeaux.

The problem with the typeIX/D2 being stuck into the rear wall at Bordeaux,can be rectified by changing the longitude and latitude of the naval base.

Open up file;
SilentHunterIII/data/Campaigns/Campaign/Campaign_LND.MIS
This can be opened up using notepad'look for

[Unit 36]
Name=Bordeaux
Class=NavalBase
Type=407

Long=_103695.000000
Lat= 5447206.000000
Heading= 0.000000

do the the changes as is.

The Flotillas change their bases throughout the war. I transferred to the 12th Flotilla in early 1943 and there i was: in Bordeaux finally getting a precious IX-type U-Boat!

Thanks at HW3 for the hint! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

And something else: i'm in April 1944 now. Where can i get one of the even bigger boats, like the XXI? *drools*

Nope, not unless you switch back to a VIIC for good. I don't think there is renown refund for the IX...

I think i already told you which Flotilla has the IX (12th). http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I don't know about any other because i change Flotillas as few times as possible, because every transfer steals precious time that i could use to sink ships.

If i recall correctly a IX costs about 25,000 of renown. I don't know exactly and can't check atm.

You can't specifically call in the Luftwaffe, but you can send a contact report when you've spotted a ship. For this you need to be surfaced and you can select it in the options of the radio operator. This may or may not call in Luftwaffe support... it just informs other units of the ship being there and where it's headed. What you allies do with this information is up to them.
