This is probably a really dumb question and the answer is probably staring at me, yelling at me to see it but... how do I know if my Sub has the 105mm deck gun so I can get the bonus?

Jeff,

Look at the top of your Type IX's. "10.5 cm status" with a finite number of ammo.

Ahhh the 10.5cm equals 105mm... why not just put 105mm up there

thanks...

If you don't mind a quick off topic second question...

I started Sept-39 therefore at Sept-40 I'm eligible for promotion. If I'm on patrol June-40 the required "p" for the type IXA is during Jul-40 and "r" refit on Aug-40 do I roll for promotion?

The way I read the rule is promotion would not be rolled until after the next patrol because the promotion must occur no less than 12 months after the start of the patrol. Not sure if I explained that very well but read 11.2.3.

That's how I was reading it, thanks for confirming.

Yes, I'm pretty sure the promotion attempt is made during the first Refit month after 12 months. So if you started September of 1939 but were still at sea the month of September 1940 then you would try for a promotion the first month you are back at port for refit (so maybe October 1940 or even November 1940 if you were in a Type IX submarine and September 1940 was the second month of your patrol or you had a 'resupply' patrol month, etc.)

What I'm not so sure about is when your second promotion attempt would be made but I have always played that it should be 24 months after you first started, so it would be in September 1941 - even if your 'promotion' was in October 1940 then your next attempt would still be in September 1941 (if you were in port). I think the main purpose is to prevent being promoted while at sea - I don't think you're supposed to be penalized because you were at sea on a patrol when you would have normally been promoted...

That's the simplicity of the decimal system.

Because I believe that's not the naming system used by the Germans. Yes, that means it's the table that should say 10.5cm.

Having been in the US navy, the promotion review comes up 1 year (or more depending on grade) from the last promotion - so it would be from whenever the promotion was made in my mind. That is how I play it.

Correct, the Germans never referred to their weapon calibers in millimeters. Always centimeters. 2 cm, 3.7cm, 8.8cm and so forth..
