I know that it's historically correct but very frustrating to have your Kristalldrehbasisgerat (KDB) broken every time you have to dive below a 120 meters. Kind of like a parachute that's designed to work for only the first half of the trip! I imagine that they would have had box full of spare KDB units onboard.... surely!

You can modify Crash Depth=140 to a higher value in the zones.cfg file C:\Ubisoft\Silent Hunter 5\data\Zones.cfg as per Vdr's post below or just add a semicolon in front of this line to make it indestructible.

Find this in zone.cfg file and change marked line to something like 200-220 meters...
