For those of you who don't know who Gunther Prien is, First, a little 
history;
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
GUNTHER PRIEN
On 17th December 1938 a German U-boat was completed at the Germania dockyard 
in Kiel. The vessel was U 47, serial number 583, and it was destined to 
become probably the most famous German submarine ever commissioned. Under 
the captaincy of Lieutenant Günther Prien, U 47 was to become the most 
feared Grey Wolf operating in the Atlantic for a period of two and a half 
years, sinking a total gross tonnage of over 200,000 BRT. These figures made 
U 47 one of the most successful German U-boats of the 2nd World War. Even 
today the sub’s former enemies acknowledge Prien’s outstanding achievement 
when, on 13th October 1939, he penetrated the powerful defences of the main 
anchorage of the British Home Fleet at Scapa Flow in the Orkney Islands. 
There the U-boat sank the battleship Royal Oak and seriously damaged a 
second ship, the Pegasus, before making her way home undamaged.

On 7th March 1941 U 47 was sunk by the British destroyer Wolverine during an 
attack on a convoy to the south of Ireland; there were no survivors.

I figured the guy deserved some sort of mention in MOHAA, so i made a skin 
of him. To install it, simply put it in MOHAA/Main, and Bob's yer Uncle ;).
(Note: This works with both AA and SH)

If anyone has any other ideas concerning historical figures in MOHAA, drop 
me a line at l008455@hotmail.com, or leave a thread on the M/M/S forum at

Later, Chaps
