This is a very good idea. One of my complaints about most simulators is perfect intelligence - how you are always guaranteed 100% credit for every kill, even when there are no friendly witnesses.

It's a lot like the kill confirmation feature for "Over Flanders Fields", which is one of my favorite flight sims.

Crazy idea - is there a way to make BDU more likely to accept claims early in the war? As late as 1940 American newspapers would publish lists of vessel sinkings, based on distress calls picked up by neutral radio operators. Presumably, German intelligence would have access to them, and could confirm that U-47 did, indeed, sink the tanker "Suzie Snowflake" on the date a claim was made for her. As the war went on, censorship became more strict and it became harder to confirm kills.
