Default SS-200 USS Thresher

Since I am playing SH4 , i decided to read about My current boat USS Thresher SS-200. Here are pictures and a brief history of this Boat I am simulating to be Captain of.

'Tis a fine boat too, with an eager crew and a fine skipper to guide her!

Happy hunting!

Hey Prop-beannie I just got my 5th kill on my fourth patrol .. I wish we could mod fleet oiliers for a re-fuel at sea much like SH5 .. As far as skill is concerned. it is becoming to easy to use the zero method , which by the way is very effective when the weather is poor .. I love sub simming , reminds me when I was in the US Navy , happy hunting back to you

I understand about the too easy part, that is why I started playing with no map contacts. I mean, CapnScurvy made that beautiful Optical Targeting Correction and you really give it a work out with no map contacts!

Plus with no sonar lines, it's wild because it's a great why to get range, but with no black lines, you really have to be mindful of destroyers.

Radar it kind of a pain, and not seeing aircraft on the map is time consuming, but nothing is perfect, and all in all it's quite fun imho.

It would be very interesting if we could have a mult-play scheme were historically we could form wolfpacks ,and find our targets as a wolf pack . this was done In ww2 with the US Submarine service IN ww2.
