USS Sailfish SS-192 Asiatic Fleet

Finished second patrol. Sank one battleship, one heavy cruiser and eight marus.

All torpedoes expended. Broom flag flying high.

Docked in Surabaya 14 January 1942.

NOTE: Using contact exploder with slow speed settings and shallow angles of impact (60 degrees or lower) removed a lot of the dud torpedo problems. Still had a few deep runners passing under targets.

Awesome. What mod do you use that puts those flags on the sub? And the emblem? It looks great!

I'm going to try that. I didn't even know that the "crushed firing pin" was modeled.

Thanks for the tip

Default there she goes...

Early 1945, off the coast of the Chiba Peninsula.
Driving the USS Crevalle (SS-291)

Caught a small TF leaving Tokyo Bay.
Got a couple of hits, created a bit of havoc.
Dove and eluded the Escort-Swarm, then doubled back and hit 'em again.
Observe the effects of the last hit on the Big Y.

Wanna say, I believe those are baked into the mod, itself & NOT a separate mod, I do believe...

But... don't shoot Me out a tube, if I'm wrong...

I'll have to take a hard look into Maru. I need to finish up my current campaign. One month at sea and I've tallied 32,000 GRT!

What mod are you using to for the flag and 'sunk ship' on the conning tower?
