Default Action off France, October 1939

WW2 has just started. U-Boats prowl the Atlantic for merchant shipping.
One such boat, U-27, is bombed and strafed by a SuperMarine Stanraer Bi-Plane Bomber on Oct. 4 1939. The uboat suffers only minor damage, but the bomber radios in to a trio of old destroyers about 18 miles away. About 25 minutes later, U-27, after having crash dived, surfaces to periscope depth to look for the meandering bomber they thought would be there. Instead, THIS is what they see:


A trio of old I and E class destroyers rapidly approaching at only 2000 yards away.
U-27 fires three torpedoes at the leading destroyer, which is just 1,500 yards from her now. Steam powered Mk 1 torpedoes enter the frigid English Channel water. The torpedoes hit home.

The target is obliterated. The British, now aware of a Uboat in the vicinity, pick speed and search.
The 2nd destroyer, now leading the force, fired at a periscope. I-27 quickly fires her last readily available torpedo, which does its job and still explodes.


The remaining destroyer, on which the crews were a mix of frightened and furious, try and try to pick up a decent ASDIC of the submarine. But before this, U-27 slips away to the West.

Default Hunting and Destroying U-53

1943

The war is turning to the allies side. Less merchant shipping is being sunk, and more escorts are becoming available. So much, that, Anerican shipyards were building ships faster than the Germans could sink them. Two Liberty ships in a dock on the east coast took just four days from keel to complete. Somewhere, 300 miles off Newfoundland, Canada, German Submarine U-53 was lurking. A few days later, a Canadian merchantman stumbled upon her and was attacked. U-53 surfaced and manned the deck gun. But her captain made a fatal mistake: He thought this merchantman was an actual merchant : in reality, it was an armed tugboat. And it was not Canadian. U-53s men could make out the titles of the ship: USS Apache. She was so close to the submarine she had no time to dive. Apache goes in for a ram, but at the last second U-53's skipper orders hard to port and just misses Apaches dangerous spinning propeller. Apache fires a single shot from her 3/50" gun before U-53 crash dives. Apache makes a hasty run for it, and radios in that a German sub is near her position. 3 days later, a task group containing USS Bogue rushes in. A routine F4F wildcat patrol is launched to search for anything. It spots nothing. An hour later, it's deployed again to where they think the uboat may be hiding. The wildcats catch a glimpse of what looked like a metal broom bobbing up and down. The wildcats zoom in, fire their guns, and drop 100 lb bombs. This does nothing to the object. There is silence for another 3 hours. U-53 surfaces and sees 3 small flat tops dead ahead.
The battle is about to begin.


U-53 fires a spread of 4 torpedoes at the lead flattop: the famous USS Bogue. The experienced watchman onboard Bogue spot the torpedo trail and take evasive action.


Canadian escort HMCS Acanthus spots the scope and fires. The Germans now catch the attention of the escort. The escorts just 1000 meters away. But the skipper, wants to see his torpedoes hit home.

Only one of the four torpedoes fired hits the Bogue, but it's enough to have the crew working day and night to patch it up. The angry Americans now launch all their bombs with an assortment of mixed wildcat fighters as well.



One TBM avenger pinpoints the location of the uboat and drops its depth charges. Unfortunately they all miss.

Another avenger sweeps in, dempth charges ready. The pilot drops, and, sure enough, they hit and penetrate the thin hull of the submarine.

U-53 shudders, then her hull implodes with water, killing all men onboard.
The task force returns home for repairs, having claimed their 6th uboat kill.

Default The Sinking of Tigris in the Baltic Seas

Two new state of the art T-Class submarines are on routine patrol around Norway, hunting for enemy uboats that were patrolling the area.



Unknown to the submarines, a Zerstorër 30 miles to the East was attacked and moderately damaged by a Sunderland Mark III of the 1st Coastal Command based in Britain. The destroyer responded back with 20mm and 37mm anti aircraft fire, but the seaplane remained unscathed as it sent out a radio report. The destroyer was the Z1 Leberecht Maas, and she took a 15 degree list to port.






The radio report is recieved by two surfaced Tclass submarines 28 miles from the scene.
However, a FW 200 is instantly called to the scene to check for enemy surface warships. It spots a submarine, HMS Tigris. It makes a strafing pass over as its gunners/men riddle it with 7.92 bullets. Tigris sounds the ALARM and crash dives frantically. The FW 200 swings around and drops half its bombload, just as Tigris submerges.


An hour later Tigris returns to periscope dempth detecting a destroyer.

Just as Tigris launches her attack, an He 115 seaplane dives out of the sun and drops a huge 550lb bomb, shaking Tigris and splitting her hull. She sinks with all hands, after what was definetly going to be the first kill for the Royal Navy. The Z1 had no chance of escaping at such a low speed. After all the near misses of the bombs disabled one of her engines thereby slowing the ship.
