This is one of the most enjoyable games I've ever played. No, really. Back to the days of commanding a B-17 squadron, but this time, a Submarine for the US Navy in the Pacific. My first encounter did take sometime. One hour to even find anything, but when I did, I wasn't letting him get away. A Japanese Destroyer, I didn't even check what class from the handy ship encyclopedia they give you for ID'ing ship classes and faction ownership.
There was a problem though... it was faster than me! I wasn't letting it escape, so I surfaced, manned the gun and fired at it like. 'Yeah! You! Come and fight!' Needless to say, they did. Unfortunately for them, I was a lot more accurate. I hit him twice, causing two fires on his outer section. When he came straight for me, I dived and evaded. It was then he made the fatal mistake of turning east. I had escaped to the West and cut my engines. Twenty minutes passed as I kept a low profile, watching it limp around, looking for me in all the wrong places, but then.... *woosh* 'Torpedo in the water.' ....and another... He tried to turn, cut his speed, but it was too late and my shots were true. A massive explosion rocked the aft of the Japanese destroyer, causing it to slump into the Pacific ocean. The second, smashed into the front, at first, apparently causing little damage, however fifteen seconds later, she was submerged and rolled into a watery grave. A massive explosion erupted a large wave into the air several moments after she went under with all hands on board.
Love it. Learned a lot from my first encounter, and have a lot more to learn. Bring it on!
