Beginning a second and third Patrol, this time in Scapa Flow.

Oktober 1939 2nd Week
B-Dienst: Special Scenario no roll needed
Weather: Rolls 6,4,5 (fine Weather)

Setup:
Place U-47 on TF-Display, enemy ships count as @ Port
Place BB Royal Oak 35t 7-0, random TDC -3
Place CL Arethusa 7t 4-0, random TDC -2

Combat Round 1:
U-47 attack vs BB Royal Oak 35t 7-0 (Torpedo)
Att: 4 - 1 (Torpedo) = 3
Def: 7 - 2 (@Port) - 3 (TDC) = 2
Roll = 6 (Miss)

Counterattack:
2 (Red Boxes) - 2 Sub Defence = 0
Roll = 8 (luckily nothing)

Combat Round 2:
BB new TDC = -2
CL new TDC = +2
U-47 attack vs BB Royal Oak 35t 7-0 (Torpedo)
Att: 4 - 1 (Torpedo) = 3
Def: 7 - 2 (@Port) - 2 (TDC) - 1 (2nd Attack) = 2
Roll = 2 (Miss)

Counterattack:
2 (Red Boxes) - 2 (Sub Defence) + 1 (2nd Attack) = +1
Roll = 2 (nothing)

Since i didn't sink any ship i just restarted over... whistle

Oktober 1939 2nd Week
B-Dienst: Special Scenario no roll needed
Weather: Rolls 7,9,7 (fine Weather)

Setup:
Place U-47 on TF-Display, enemy ships count as @ Port
Place BB Royal Oak 35t 7-0, random TDC 0 (no hit Chance)
Place CL Arethusa 7t 4-0, random TDC 0

Combat Round 1:
U-47 attack vs CL Arethusa 7t 4-0 (Torpedo)
Att: 4 - 1 (Torpedo) = 3
Def: 4 - 2 (@Port) = 2
Roll = 0 (Hit) Dmg Roll = 5 - 1 (Torpedo) = 4 (sunk)

Counterattack:
2 (Red Boxes) - 2 Sub Defence = 0
Roll = 4 (nothing)

Combat Round 2:
BB new TDC = +2 (no hit Chance)
U-47 no attack
Can't skip Counterattack on 2nd Round, either retreat before new TDC or fear the consequences ;-)

Counterattack:
2 (Red Boxes) - 2 Sub Defence + 1 (2nd Attack) = +1
Roll = 7 + 1 (luckily nothing)

So on my second try i did peform better and again the ship crew got unharmed away. The second run shows how hard it is to even hit a BB at all, since the 7 Defence is hard to break.

1 Ship sunk, with a total Tonnage of 7t
11

Yeah, I played the U-47 scenario a couple times myself tonight. It's just statistically unlikely. More unlikely I feel than it was for Prien.

First time I played this scenario I even didn't reach the Scapa Flow SMZ. A transit event made my sub damaged and RTB. cry

By the way question about transit to SMZ:
Do you do:
- Arrive in the SpecOp do a transit event check then place your sub in the SMZ and do another transit event check with +2 (due to enterring a SMZ) ?
- Arrive in the SpecOp, place your sub in the SMZ linked to it and then do a single transit event check with the +2 DRM ?

Thanks if anyone answer my question ^^ !

You only do one single transit event check with the +2 DRM.
