KTB - U 112

Tuesday, 3 September 1940 - Rockall Bank

0530 - Qu.1937AM - "Battle Stations!"

0539 - Changing course to 175°, commencing attack run. Target ships are a Standard Tanker in Pos.1 of the middle column and HMS Furious in Pos.2 behind the tanker.

(Note: This convoy has pretty much the same composition as the one before, also, with HMS Ark Royal in it. Naming the aircraft carrier HMS Furious, is merely my attempt to simulate a different aircraft carrier running in the convoy.).

0550 - Tubes I & II, G7a, K-a/Contact Fuse, running depth 4.5m, Vt30, on the Standard Tanker, Shooter: Ltnt.z.S. & I.W.O. Emmo MARBACH.

Both torpedoes are misses, as the convoy begins zig-zagging. Either, the torpedo wakes or the boat itself must have been sighted, even though, no star shells are fired.

0551 - Tubes III & IV, G7a, K-a/Contact Fuse, running depth 4.5m, Vt44, on HMS Furious, Shooter: Ltnt.z.S. & I.W.O. Emmo MARBACH.

Both are hits in the forecastle. HMS Furious explodes and sinks immediately. Must have hit the forward magazine.

Cmdr.: "I'm altering course to 50° and running off at high speed. Approximate distance to the nearest ship is 1000m. The forward sweeper - a V&W destroyer - detects the boat and opens fire with its deck guns but the shells are way off. Showing the destroyer our stern and going to flank speed. The destroyer is gaining on us fast."

0556 - At a distance of 1000m, "ALARM!". - Crash diving to A+70. Wabos (Depth Charges) above the boat and astern during further course.

0642 - Surfaced the boat after 46min. and 2.3sm. The destroyer is still searching for us in the distance and dropping Wabos. "Dismissed from Battle Stations!"

- to be continued -


Started a new career in August 2019, to commemorate the beginning of WWII, 80 years ago ...


- continued from 3 Sept., 0642h -


0700 - After about 1h of ASW action, the destroyer runs back to the convoy.

0715 - About 1.5h after the first attack, the convoy stops zig-zagging.

0745 - Qu.1938AM - Boat in position for a surface attack with the stern tubes, off the port beam of the convoy, course 355°, 50rpm ahead. "Battle Stations!".

0801 - Tubes V & VI, G7a, K-a/Contact Fuse, running depth 5m, Vt44, on a large tanker in Pos.3 of the middle column, Shooter: Ltnt.z.S. & I.W.O. Emmo MARBACH.

Both torpedoes are hits. The tanker breaks in two, explodes and sinks immediately in a horrific fireball.

Running off, first on a northerly course and then changing to 85°. The convoy is zig-zagging but the escorts make no attempt for a ASW search. "Dismissed from Battle Stations!".

0850 - Diving to A-50 for torpedo loading. 300rpm, 7kn.

0921 - Tubes I & II re-loaded. Battery 7900Ah.

Boat is diving to periscope depth right after launching the torpedoes, altering course away from the convoy, to 310°. Both torpedoes are hits after 156sec. The tanker explodes and sinks within seconds.

Cmdr.: "Just before the first torpedo impact, the forward sweeper shoots off a star shell. After the attack, the forward sweeper is running around the ships of the outer port column and shooting off star shells, suspecting us within the convoy. The rear corvette, is covering a possible escape behind the convoy."

1116 - Surfaced the boat after 1h 04min. and 3.2sm. Altering course to 180°.

Going to be a bit lazy with this as I have been playing a lot and not really posting. So U-94 has been a lot of fun was getting a ton of tonnage off the English and Irish coasts it was absolute bedlam. Would end up butchering a bunch of merchants and then duck out just as ASW assets showed up it was a grand ole' time through 40 to summer of 41.

Then near the end of 41 some big wig obviously started noting our success started shifting us way south along the Spanish coast. Then while we were still having success they tasked us for Gibraltar every. Single. Time. It was touch and go a lot with destroyers absolutely smothering us with depth charges and other fun toys. After last patrol on which we sank 6 merchants causing absolute pandemonium I decided it was time to fold before BdU got us all killed.

So with the Americans entering the war I put in a transfer to 2. Flotille in Lorient and received command of a Type IXC U-802. First patrol has been good so far. Oddly enough they tasked us for just west of Ireland for some reason. Sank two merchants en route and got to try out the massive deck gun. It was fun. Just finished marking time off Ireland and we are steaming towards Canada for more lucrative hunting grounds.
