Default Bernard is back!

Did you notice that the default Captain name when you start a U-boat campaign is Bernard?:rotfl:

Default Sorry Guys

Maybe I'm dumb - but whats the significance of this? I've been plaing the SH series since it first came out and this doesn't ring any bells.

Bernard is just the guy on you boat that messes things up for you and the others.

Since ComSubPac is our double-agent commander person, he gave Bernard command to screw up the campaign, ComSubPac is a double-double-agent...

Reading the Credits, I saw Comedians listed.

Which one came up with the
"HEY! Let's name the Captain Bernard Von Unfal!!"

Now,
I know what Bernard means, and I know what Von means.

But what is Unfal?

Bernard Of ?

Just looked through a German dictionary, looks like Unfal means Mischance/Misfortune/Accidant...

Soz...Bernard of Misfortune?

Alas, i cannot have more Captain-name related misfortune because my Fleet Boat skipper was and always will be named Philip F. Queeg

It is darn funny if you think about it. Looks like Bernard was transfered to the Pacific. It is Germany's only hope to win the Atlantic with Bernard out of the way. :rotfl:

Bernard is the German equivalent of Gilligan.

He is one of the more indispensable members of the crew, because he's the guy you blame for every stupid mistake you make.
