So far the S-Boat is a Fine vessal to fight with. The deck gun has better hitting power than the deck gun on the U-boats. Also she has fairly good speed and manoeuvrability... maybe not the best... but enough to get the job done. About the biggest drawback so far... would be the lacking of stern torpedo's.

But then... I enjoy the cr*p planes in IL-2 the Best. Give me a Hurricane or Mig-1 anyday!



A kill with torpedo's.



A kill with the deck gun.

I think thats why the navy gave you torpedoes son

Now spill the beans, what game are you playing it cant be SH4, looks nothing like my game. Yours is clean and crisp, mine is fuzzy and a pain to look at for any lenght of time, same goes for the other screenies in this thread, they are just totally different from what I see, sharp and bright, can you at least say what your ingame setting are

I had a good go at a task force earlier, sunk two Kongo Battleships, one Yamato class ship (she took 5 fish before going down to meet david jones!)...was pretty intense with a friendly task force and air attacks battering them...











Was cool watching the crew get in the lifleboats and seeing the Yamato slowly sink. That destroyer caught my eye...wouldn't like to be the captain on the bridge of that one lol..."my thats a nice tan you got there sir!"

Default 1st Post Ever/1st Patrol Ever

Ahoy Mates,

I've been lurking and patrolling these waters undetected since I first launched my VII on the Atlantic brine. Now that the powers that be have turned me loose in the Pacific, I thought I'd launch my first fish into these waters.

It's 1941 and I've been given command of a nice new Gar class sub and re assigned to Pearl Harbour. I was very impressed with the efficiency of this fine navy I am proud to serve with. Only 2 days since the devastating attack and this place is as clean and operational as ever. Way to go boys! You are a credit to your country.

I would have liked to stayed in port and looked around more, but alas, my orders came quickly. Patrol and engage merchant shipping in the Marshall Islands. "All right crew, cast off! Ahead 2/3rds. Follow plotted course."

Well it's days later and boy not much happening west of the Marshalls. Took a look at the map and there's a nice chain of islands just up north. The Mariachis, Martinis or something like that. Set course!!!

I was off the west coast of Guam and it was very exciting. I'd splashed 5 planes sporting red polka dots. Silly of the Japanese to paint a bulls eye on their craft if you ask me. Unfortunately my flak gunner seemed to be tiring out for when I looked at him, he had a orange hue to him so I sent him off duty. His near sighted replacement couldn't hit a brick wall at 2 feet or even find the trigger most of the time, so when 2 planes came in at once I ordered "CRASH DIVE!" Well as it turns out, it was more like a "Scratch paint in fender bender dive." But we got down relatively unscathed.

A few hours of submerged running and I felt it safe to surface. Not really, but we needed fresh air. I'm gonna have some harsh words for that supply officer who stocked our galley with all those cans of beans!

Running a northern route, I was fortunate to encounter 5 large cargo vessels. Both Old Split and Modern Composite. I would have thought a modern stealth carbon composite ship harder to spot on air search radar???????? Each of these vessels where unescorted and I was able to allow Boomer my deck gunner to handle 4.5 of these. In the end, I fired a single fish at number 5.

After clearing these waters out, we set off on a north western tack on a hunch that a shipping lane was in this area. Little did I realize it was a military shipping lane and I just about rammed 2 enemy destroyers while napping at my post. Passing between them, I decided I was the meat in a death sandwich so I again ordered the highly effective "CRASH DIVE!" I think the destroyer captains must have been napping too for they didn't come at me with the might and aggressiveness I would have thought fitting of the Imperial Japanese Navy.

It was this point, I thought I'd go on the offensive. This was unfortunately my demise for my helmsman confused "Level the boat." with "Pull the plug."

So as I sit here in heaven waiting to be reincarnated as a US Navy submarine commander. I'll just make a mental note, key "A" equals "Pull the plug."

Happy Hunting,
Lost@Sea

Default Dud Depth Charges!!!

We've experienced dud torpedos, but I was diving to get away from the destroyers and happened to forget to lower my scope. I don't know my depth but I had a depth charge land on the bow of my sub and didn't go off. It swayed back and forth and finally rolled off! I thought it was so cool, wish I would have taken a screen shot of it. I didn't know where else to post this and wasn't sure if I should start a new topic.
