So I've been playing Silent Hunter III again. After a campaign mission where I sank 3 British destroyers with one of my favorite "feint retreat" maneuvers, I found myself depth charged by a destroyer I didn't account for before it was too late. At around 200 meters I realized my U-boat was not going to come out of it so I blew the ballast in attempt to get to the surface. No luck. The rest of the way down (about 350 meters) I felt chills going down my spine as I could hear the hull crushing slowly around me. It truly would be a horrible way to die >_>The Pic:
So after that fate, I tried one of the "historical missions", where it was me and the Bismarck against a British Nelson Battleship, an anti-sub destroyer, and the ship pictured here, the King George V Battleship. I immediately sank the Nelson with four torpedoes to the starboard side. It sank in seconds. Then the anti-sub destroyer had a go at me so I had to submerge and the Bismarck sank =/ I managed to creep up to periscope depth and launched 2 torpedoes into the George's starboard side, crippling it, but not sinking it. I dove again as the anti-sub destroyer tried to have another go at me and snuck around to the George's port side. I crept up again and fired 2 torpedoes into the George's port side and one torpedo into the anti-sub destroyer's bow while it was looking for me. The destroyer sank quickly and the George was STILL floating after 2 torpedoes to the port side and 2 torpedoes to the starboard side! This screen shot here is the 5th torpedo, 3rd to the port side, which ended the George in only a few seconds after impact.
King George V, I salute you!
Aha, victory was mine--I triumphed over the crafty Brits!
