The whole depth charge thing seems odd to me. When a torpedo boat sallies along side an enemy DD and drops depth charges.
Such a large explosion should probably take the torpedo boat with it, no?

I don't play ships but are you playing arcade or realistic?
Realistic all the way. Why don’t you play ships?

50% of the time you are alive and fighting the battle.  Not rage quitting in the middle.  Or dying too early, I guess.  Activity stats are shown in the end.

I always like a good docu-drama. This one was made in 1945 and is about a British motor torpedo boat crew. Very propaganda-ish and stiffly acted. Which I really don't mind. Such a contrast to hollywood where everybody broods and each individual has personality problems. Also good footage of the boats themselves. I love the deep growl of these engines. The song also has me hooked "well, you'll ne'er get to eaven in an MTB"... The only detractor is that combat looks to have been simulated with models from what I can tell.

Oh and does anybody know where to find the song in this clip "you'll never get to eaven in an MTB" ?
