Submerging as I fired, neither reacted until the torps hit.
yeah, those are really interesting conditions.
how can I get those?
there are only two things in the world: submarines and targets.

I wish I remembered the details better, but it's been couple of careers ago or more. IIRC the lead carriers were Akagi and Kaga, moving east, so it may have been one of the Single Missions or a random pre-Midway encounter.

I had a similar situation on the last career in the SBS against Ozawa, but in very heavy weather. I closed on Zuikaku in a surface attack, paralleling until I could get into position, staying just far enough away that I wasn't detected until just before turn-in. Taiho loomed out of the gloom ahead just then and all bow tubes were open, so...

David McCampbell had a quiet June 19th in that reality.

Unrealistic, but fun the first time or two.

Let me know if more details would help fix this.
2nd patrol, Tambor from Pearl started Feb. 24 1942.
Zone 4, patrol for 5 days, saved after getting in zone and also about 1 day later(saves OK)

3 days in zone, first targets A midget sub and a Sentaka-Dai Sub. sank the big one, midget acted like DD, circling etc.
Saved, didn't check save at that time, found out later that it comes up with gauges at high noon.
2 days later sank Passenger-cargo freighter, saved.
Next time I played this save and prior save came back with gauges at high noon.
previous saves OK.
Fortsu v1.26p no other mods, Win 7 64 bit. LAA.

Any comments?

I spent the cold war under water.
