Those rascals on the Garvaton; dodging two attacks. Still dodging torpedoes in 1944 from my U-2501. Pandias sunk again. I guess the Pandias I sank was the Pandias II. Yeah, that must be it..

Wish I hadn't had that horrendous luck at the end of 1940-1941. Didn't see a thing for months!

An my hull was apparently a depth charge magnet there at the end...4 straight hull rolls. And one of them the Hull x2.

I'm always amazed at how quickly things can go bad in this game B-17 QOtS was the same way!
