Mystery Subsim #21
Just 20 MSs and we already have an Ace. Gotta make this harder. Well, here goes nothing...
Here is the initial shot of Mystery Subsim #21

If you guess, and you are wrong, then you have only two wrong guesses left in the whole contest before your participation ends, so guess wisely (if you are really sure). If you don't know, don't waste a guess! :) You can only guess incorrectly three times in the contest.

You cannot EDIT your post in this contest. An edited or deleted post counts as a guess.

Remember the rules!!

If no one tries to guess this shot, or no one guesses correctly, there will be an expanded shot to follow.

Good hunting!

From the review:


The games I played in Fast Attack were very enjoyable. You get a sense of authenticity playing this sim. There is no real time "map view" to allow you to cheat and locate targets. The only map view available is generated from the satellite intelligence and your sonar bearings, which could be accurate or not, depending on your skill in tracking contacts. This is a plus for realism. Your torpedoes are wire-guided and will acquire when they come in sonar contact with a vessel. You better be sure the vessel you target is the enemy, because your ADCAPs have no qualms about taking out friendlies and oil rigs. When you are assigned a long range strike, you access the satellite bearings and launch Tomahawk cruise missiles from your vertical launch tubes. When one of your torpedoes or Harpoons does successfully reach a target, you are given a video cutaway of the action. You wouldn’t be able to witness the demolition of a light cruiser in a real sub, but it’s still pretty neat to see your handiwork. And the quality of the animation; from your torps leaving your boat, to the seconds before they kill a target, even an airport hangar with guys standing around smoking as your Tomahawks come barging in; the scenes are excellent. Unlike Jane's 688(I), you cannot ever see your own sub from the outside, nor enemy vessels. And you cannot fasten a camera to your torpedo and guide it to the target by sight. You see only what a real fast attack sub captain can see, nothing more. Sierra hits the mark in this department: no cheats. You see the 3D views only when your weapons are destined to strike.
So, no one ever won a medal in Fast Attack but ol' Onkel Neal, eh? :lol: Nice! Now, on to Mystery Subsim #22.
