WAR DECLARED!
US ATTACKED BY JAPAN


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrAuIMk9KPU

8 DEC 1941

America is about to embark on a fateful mission to drive the evil forces of the Japanese Empire back across the Pacific and teach them the lesson they deserve for attacking our country! Sure, you want to get involved. I understand that. But do you really want to be a Marine, dug into some sand hole on a stinkin' island with people shooting at you constantly? We've got the real secret weapon that's gonna win the war right here:

That's right, buddy. I'm here recruiting submariners. Never been on a sub? You'll love it. Nice and cozy. You get to sail the open sea and if anyone comes along to bother you, just dive and they can't do anything about it.

Best thing, we're going after their merchants that will be hauling food and guns to their troops. You think a bunch of traders are going to stand up to the U.S. Navy? And think of how much of a hero you'll be. Can't shoot your buddies if they are hungry and out of ammo, right?

I'll tell you what. Sign up and I'll even let you vote for what you think our boat should be named.


What do we do on a sub? Well we do this:

and this

silent-hunter-wolves-of-the-pacific-20070321010330041_640w.jpg



Oh, you mean what kind of job. Well, the Captain, he's in charge. He'll need a few officers too, but mostly the positions are the following:
  • Mechanics to work in the engine rooms, keeps us running nice and smooth
  • Deck watchmen to keep an eye out for any Japanese convoys
  • Helmsmen, they keep the sub pointed in the right direction
  • Torpedo crew, that sounds like fun but you better make sure you don't drop one of those things on your foot
  • Radar and hydrophone operators in the conning tower, these guys have to have great ears and stay alert for their whole shift
  • Also on the deck I'll need a few guys who can man the deck guns. Sometimes you don't want to waste the torpedo, you know?
There's three shifts, so there's plenty to go around. Just sign here and you'll be cruising the calm waters of the sunny Pacific in no time!






In this LP, I'll be playing the campaign mode of Silent Hunter IV with the Trigger Maru Overhaul mod installed and the Run Silent, Run Deep campaign mode, just to make it challenging. Anyone who wants to be a peon on my boat can let me know with the classic !Sign Up. It won't be as glamorous as X-Com, but you get to help blow up the Japanese, so there's that.

Also, taking suggestions on what to name my sub.

    Okay, here's my guess as to what will happen:

    I will fail to spot the Japanese battleship 30 feet from my left

    Bogey will target a friendly

    while Blankspace loads the torpedo to destroy our allied ship, he will drop it and we will explode

    Seriously, as much as I love this game, I'm really rusty at it. I'll probably get us sunk on the first patrol.

    Crew Briefing 1
    0800 09 DEC 1941



    ATTEN'HUT!

    STAND AT ATTENTION, I HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT TO MAKE.

    Men, it pains me greatly to deliver this news to you. While we initially believed Captain Ramius was on vacation in Ohio, we have discovered that his flight was delayed and he was indeed at Pearl Harbor during the attack.

    His body was discovered at 0300 hours last night in a charred and twisted love dance with three hula girls in the collapsed remains of a cheap brothel near Hickam Field.



    *clears throat*


    In the aftermath of this unfortunate turn of events, Pacific Command has seen fit to deliver to us Lieutenant Commander NotACrook to command this crew. Captain Ramius had 26 years of experience and once captured a German destroyer bare-assed and drunk.

    As for the Commander, we'll have to ask about his experience when he arrives.

    In the meanwhile, the fleet has also made decisions regarding the remainder of the crew. I will present these in the Commander's stead.


    BOGEY, the United States Navy has commissioned you to the rank of Ensign and assigned you command of Sensor services.

    ZOMBOMAMBO, I hereby promote you to the rank of Lieutenant (Junior Grade) with all the duties and responsibilities of the rank, and assign you command of the Deck Watch.

    SNOWBEAT, I hereby promote you to the rank of Lieutenant with all the duties and responsibilities of the rank, and assign you command of the Engineering section.

    I have been just given this memo forwarded ahead of the Commander, and I am also to present the following, as much as it disgusts me.




    sigh.

    DRUHIM, I hereby promote you to the rank of Lieutenant, and assign you to the position of Ship's Navigator and Executive Officer.


    Crew assignments will follow as the rest of the ship's roster is filled out.

    XO, dismiss the troops.
