Admiral Halsey 02-07-15 03:48 PM

28th of September 1939 and sending complaints to BdU about the torpedoes. Was just north of Scotland when I came across a TF consisting of 4 destroyers surrounding a lovely Courageous class aircraft carrier heading on the perfect interception course. Got into firing positizon and fired a spread of 4 that headed straight and true towards the carrier from no more the 700 yards away. Every single one of them ran deep even though I set them to run shallow! Dönitz better get my messages about the torps or heads will roll!

You misunderstand the situation. Your thinking is that sinking enemy ships is good, but living to fight another day and protecting your crew is better.

Somewhere in BdU's structure is a petty bureaucrat whose thinking is that if you don't die in combat you weren't being aggressive enough.

All clear now?

I'm in between a dead career and restarting a new one so lets just stay studying so when ship selection day comes I can be on one of those shiny new Zerstroyers

Just got a reminder to respect even early war destroyers.

December 23rd, 1939.

I'm about 800 miles due west of Gibraltar when I encounter a convoy at night escorted by two destroyers. I slip past the destroyers and sink a Medium Oiler, Old Merchant, and Medium Merchant before I get bracketed by the destroyers and i'm forced to dive. Well once under water I could not shake either of the two and no matter how deep I went the kept finding me. Then lucky hit by a depth charge ends up destroying both periscopes and the radio antenna so if I survived i'd have to RTB. Eventually after going to 180 meters I was eventually able to shake them off and soon surfaced wondering if one of the captains name was Frederic John Walker.

Maybe so but they mistaken it for sound of seagull drops or something.

16000 BRT to my account.

They never knew what hit'em :)

Oct-39 U-45 reporting.
 
U-45 TypeVII B
Hanging around AN16 area. I've sunk ten ships so far for 42,000 tons.
I took a tour of Scapa Flow and put three eels into a battle ship. Royal Oak?
I have two eels left and 40 rounds in the deck gun.
When this patrol ends I'm going to install the no Vampire night vision mod.
I'm having a blast! And so is my crew, but I think it's time for them to go back to port for some partying. LOL.

No, Walker at the moment, still a Commander and not yet a Capitain, is scheduled for early retirement... :D

April 10th, 1942

Disaster heading out of Lorient as my crew were getting ready for a Caribbean trip. I ran into the escort(you turn away for 5 seconds...) and ended up with the sub dead in the water and barely afloat. I aborted the patrol at once and ended up having a tense talking with the Flotilla commander.

Hey, Admiral Halsey, have you recently intalled the "Flux Capacitor" upgrade on your uboat? How much renown does it cost?! :)
