U-Boat Type VII "Gray Wolf"

No Decal and Low Part Versions Here

Unterseeboot Type VIIC

After a period of only making Japanese Sports Cars I finally made the Type 7 U-Boat after all this time, I decided to make it extra special by trying some advanced decal making! The result isn't fully perfect, but it adds a lot to the visuals! I love the Greyhound movie, even despite a historical hiccup here and there, and I'm happy to honor it with this build!

Can we get this past the old Type IX? It's high time that old build got surpassed! If not though, I'll probably make a new updated type IX (I'll make one either way anyway).

    @TMach5 Well I use the Ocean mod, which doubles as a great underwater camera mod since it doesn't force you into orbit camera unlike WNP's underwater camera mod. I chose a blue color for the ocean from its underwater color option. (since it has that and the default color is an odd grey, at least it was for me)

    Action: Gameplay recording was used to record short clips before going to ezgif to convert them into Gifs. I then post those Gifs onto discord (since Imgur, and seemingly all image host sites are unreliable for images here), open original, copy that link for use on the post.

    Perfect U-boat, I think I'll just add an automatic stabiliser for perscopic depth. Congrats !
