Why are the U-boats roaring?

The first truly good subsim was Aces of the Deep. Then there was Silent Hunter III. Now Subsim presents: Wolfpack.
Good hunting and don't forget to close the hatch!

They aren't. It's clearly part of the film score edited to the rhythm of the trailer. It's about creating a mood to help market the film. For all we know that may not be the films actual score. It sounds very Dunkirk-esque.

Pretty sure I never read about that part of the Battle of the Atlantic where U-boats with goofy conning tower emblems were doing Age-of-Sail style drive-bys on American destroyers which massively outgunned them.


Yes, I know I'm an idiot for expecting slow-burn tension or realism in a modern war movie.

That's obviously because it was so effective no Ally commander survived to tell about it. And the submariners don't talk about it to this day because it's a highly classified and effective tactic even using nuclear submarines.

Duh.

Hanks is involved. The movie will be good. Embellished a bit? Perhaps. Some oddities? Certainly. However, the movie gets the events that occurred in the Atlantic during the war out there for all to see and remember. If the movie spurns interest to look deeper into the events for just one individual then it has done it's job.

I am really looking forward to this one. I have just bought today the book it is based on.

I have high hopes. About time we got a modern movie based on WWII tim cans.

Once again, the moral of the story is to get off the boat/plane if you ever see Tom Hanks aboard. Be it a plane, a ship or whatever, it's going to be a rough ride

They left the part out of the trailer where the Somali pirates climb out of the conning tower.

Looks to me that they were using the 'Turms Your Way' mod.
