Default 3" Gun on S-Boat

Driving the S-18 in January 1942, ran across unescorted convoy of two large passenger carriers (9500 tons each) and one European Ocean Liner (18500 tons) north of Luzon.

Had no torpedoes. Decided to use deck gun. Allowed crew to man and fire gun. Sank all three and had 70 rounds of HE left. Odd, that. Surface raider!

Complaining, not bragging.

Copy that... the shells are a "pinch" on the H of the E scale... A detail we have not tried to correct (yet). Same with the fact that you had a 3" gun on an S-Boat. The problem of course, being that players years ago complained about how "weak" the 3" pea-shooter gun was...

Ran across a Fuso in a Task Force. One torpedo sank it. Hit under the aft turret.

While traveling from Hong Kong towards Formosa at 150 feet to avoid the planes I was struck by something. Instant 73% hull damage and wide spread flooding. I manage to get to the surface and travel on scared to go under 100 from that point on due to the damage but made it home to Brisbane.

I recall reading other stories of deep hits but I do not recall what caused them. Water was around 600 feet deep.

There are mines around all sides of Formosa. The later the date, the more of them there are. Pulling one down by its anchoring cable is not unheard of. However, a mine strike usually results in the screen of death shortly thereafter, the deeper the worser... While working on the Yamashiro, several issues have been discovered in it, the Fuso and the Ise. I can make them ~not~ sink on one or two torpedoes, actually making it to where you have to give them 6-8 torps without exception. However, all of the smoke, fire and secondary explosions quit, so I was trying a different tact. Most of the BB have two "glass jaws" that simulate the magazines, one fore and one aft, while the CA and CL usually only have the one up front. They are perhaps a pinch too easy to hit, so we'll experiment some more on them.

ive noticed that the subs have little to no movement in medium to heavy seas. slight forward and backwards but seems very stiff in the way of rolling with the seas and such.

True. I observed the same.
