Wow...many thanks for this awesome award!

I want to dedicate this award to Lurker first, with his hard work creating Operation Monsun.
Then, i want to salute the work from S7rikeback, Propbeanie and KaleunMarco my friends who helped me to enhance the original Lurker’s creation.

SH4 is a great platform for U-Boats, at least as good as for US submarines.
Many things remains to be done, each day a little bit more, to raise this platform beyond the iconic SH3 level.
I still believe SH4 can get best of both world SH3 & 5!

Many thanks again guys, and long live U-Boats in SH4!

This post went through a half-dozen iterations in an attempt to seem irreverent or humorous. In the end though, the PM from Onkel Neal was one of the nicest surprises I have had in quite some time.

Thank you to the entire SubSim Family: I am humbled and honoured.

I had no idea I was considered at any time. Thank you so much for the support. It was Subsim that gave me the knowledge, that I hopefully gave back to a newer generation of subsimmers! Thank you very much. Most honored.
