Default U-51 and historically correct U-69 Tower Emblem for TWoS


today I released a merge of my two graphic mods U-51 tower skin "Atje and Bambo" ( and historically correct tower skin of U-69 ( for TWoS.

U-51 tower skin "Atje and Bambo" is in this release not an exchange of a present skin. It is a new one to choise in upgrade menu of Type VIIB. The emblem "Atje and Bambo" can be also used just as tower emblem only.

The download can be found here:

I change next the skin the following files and add this lines:

At the moment I have to change only two things in future for U-51:
1. exception to use U-51 tower skin for standard tower of Type VIIB (without flag gun)
2. working preview image in upgrade window

I hope someone can help me to do this two things.

v1.0 - tower skin "Atje and Bambo" of U-51 for TWoS
v1.1 - add my mod of historically correct flags of Tower Emblem of U-69
v1.2 - add preview picture for U-51 in upgrade screen
v1.3 - add "Atje and Bambo" of U-51 as tower emblem only
v1.4 - extended explanation text of U-51 tower emblem only
