Run it in compatibility mode by right clicking on SH3.exe, go into properties and click the "compatibility" tab, here there is a drop box where you can select the version of windows to run it in compatability mode with.

I haven't had a loading save crash since.
So, I tried playing career today and it crashed everytime at the start, but making the game in compatibility mode, it actually loaded, thank you very much ^^

It won't 100% stop crashes but it at least lets you play the game! Now I only get crashes if I go anywhere on the map with heavy activity (Dunkirk in May 1940 and the English Channel in June 1944), or randomly late in campaigns. It's workable though, after a year or two in game I usually just start a new campaign and name my character whatever my 1WO's name was on my previous sub.
