John was manning the RPS periscope when he spotted what appeared to be a Youtube video bobbing about in the ocean. Upon closer inspection, we discovered that the sodden flotsam was a development diary that explains fleet management in Silent Hunter Online. The specific submarines in a fleet can be chosen, repaired customised and crewed, which I kind of assumed would be the case but it's nice to have confirmation, I suppose. The man sounds terribly bored as he tells us these things. There was a previous diary too and a quick glance into the murky depths suggests we neglected to post it. It's also below and contains a more excitable man and some (distant) explosions. Signups for the closed beta are open now.
That, in case you couldn't tell, was the excitable man. Now, captains, prepare for fleet management.
