Note to self: If you hit a target with a torpedo at close range, turn away instead of continuing toward him with your mind in neutral. If a fire sets off a secondary explosion you don't want to be too close. Also (same patrol!) if you're doing a night surface attack and pass a large tanker (that might be full of avgas) within 300 yards, it's an incredibly bad idea to open up with the deck gun at that range. Sometimes I do more damage to me than the enemy does.

Default First Patrol

So i chose the Tambor class sub USS Trout for my first career patrol, after sinking 5 merchant ships, and down to only 4 torpedoes, came across a huge taskforce of 3 Ise-Class Battleships, 4 Cruisers and 4-5 Destroyers, fired a salvo of 4 torpedoes (2 contact, 2 magnetic charge). Contacts were duds, but the two magnetic charge torpedoes were enough to sink this beast. Sank in seconds after listing to port and rolled over like a barrel.

Then i dived to 80 meters and got out of there as discreetly as possible.

Default USS Barb - Trains and Rockets

Here is the story of the USS Barb performing the only ground based attack on Japan home islands of all of WWII.
Know as the only time a US Submarine sank a Freight Train.



Neat story.


Also describes their addition of the only rocket launcher on a US sub in WWII.
