I have Steel Wolves Operational/Strategic game about U-boats though I would like to also have a tactical level game that focuses on patrols for one U-Boat only. I know that "The Hunters..." game is not out yet though I'm wondering which of the two "The Hunters..." or "U-Boat Leader" will be a better U-Boat tactical game/simulation. Ultimately I prefer a game that will tell me a better story, kind of like what ASL does for me for land warfare. Any thoughts....? I'm not sure at this point if I really want to buy both, I would prefer to just get one tactical U-Boat game.

Thanks!

According to each game's description, The Hunters: German U-Boats at War, 1939-43 is a single (one) submarine game, while U-Boat Leader has you control several submarines at a time. Might make the difference for you...

I think Hunters will be a game with less complexity if it's anything like B-17.

True, I have decided to pre-order Hunters...

I have not played B-17 or any of the "Leader" games from DVG. However it seems Hunters will be 2 games (Volume 1: 39 -43, Volume 2: 43-45) this was one of key decisions for me to get the Hunters instead. Though I might in the future get the U-Boat Leader as well. I just want to make sure that I don't necessarily waste money buying two different games on the same subject and scope and only end up playing one game only. I would like to avoid this if I can...
