Warning: The following is a walkthrough of Silent Steel. It contains information necessary to complete the game. Please - DO NOT READ FROM START TO FINISH. The guys who made the game worked hard on it. So should you.
SILENT STEEL WALKTHROUGH
-- means this is the answer you are to click on for a reply.
--This is the Captain.
--Okay, Read it to me.
--Have someone bring it to me.
--Stand by, Lieutenant.
--Have the XO report to my Stateroom right away. Dismissed Lieuentenant.
--A kilo Class Submarine is believed to have exited the Med. It may be
or may not be headed into our patrol area.
--How she got out is anybodys guess. I want a full tactical dump on
the kilo class Subs, and let's brief Sonar right away.
--I want you supervising sonar, Mr. Foster drag a cot in here if you
--We were liaison-authorized to talk to the Carrier Group. Let's get
them on the horn.
--I received the message from COMSUBLANT., sir. Do you have additional
information about the compromise of my patrol area?
--At best speed, what are the probable positions of a submarine that
exited the Mediterranean 72 hours ago?
--Kilo class submarine, export type. Possibly with a performance upgrade.
--Standard speed will be sufficient, but let's go deep. see that the
sonar watches are doubled as well.
AT THIS POINT THE CAPTAIN SHOULD AUTOMATICALLY LEAD THE
XO TO WEPS.
--I'd like to load all tubes make each ready to fire.
--was it a malfunction in your gear?
--Best guess, Ensign, What is it?
--This buzz at 5 hz. It doesn't interfere with your processing abilities?
--How long would a hull search take?
NOTE: USUALLY, THE XO SAYS "WE'D
HAVE TO BRING THE SHIP TO 150 FEET MINIMUM..."BUT THIS TIME HE SAID ..."WE'D
HAVE TO LOCK OUT A SWIMMER MR. FOSTER , AND WITH SOMEONE OUT THERE LOOKING
FOR US , THE SURFACE LAYER ISN'T THE PLACE TO PLAY HIDE AND SEEK."
--I want to lock out a diver XO. I want a thorough hull search.
(The XO say's insert Disc #4)
After a few cut sceans you'll see a diver coming down the ladder with
a device in his hand.
--Get it back to the Cheif Engineer. I want to know what it is, what
it does, and what it is doing on my ship.
--I'm willing to listen to a list of suspects. Who had the opportunity,
or the motive to stick that thing on the hull.
--What about you wheeler? Did you pass by the fairwater before we submerged?
--Everyone's a suspect, Mr. Wheeler, untill I find out who put that
whistle on the hull of my sub.
[ICE CREAM 27 VIDEO]
Here, the XO and Master Cheif bring in the line handling party. Little
by little, they remove people untill only Bubba Holland is left. Master
Cheif brings him into the ward room.
--I think I have a grasp of the tacical situation. I'd like to hear
--You mean the Akula's deliberately trying to give away her location?
Master Chief offers a "weird" suggestion.
--I don't need weird, Master Chief. Let's rig for silent running. Our
best course of action is to make like a hole in the water.
Mr. Wheeler reports a request to contact the battle group.
--Very well, My intentions are to come to periscope depth. Sonar, do
you hold any contacts at this time?
Ms. Matthews appears and says "Admiral Plaskett?"
--This is the commanding officer of the USS Idaho, and who might you
--I've got some questions, hope you've got some answers. Why is a Libyan
submarine a threat to us?
--Why would the Russian Navy be trying to sink us?
Ms. Matthews says " I'll have to review your clearance information Captain,
before I can continue this brief."
The Kilo fires a torpedo at you.
--Get me a firing solution.
--Fire tube one.
--Prepare to fire second torpedo.
--Fire tube two.
The Kilo will change it's acoustic signature to duplicate you, and the
torpedo will automatically disengage.
--Place a Mk48 into command mode. Order the torpedo to kill Sierra 25.
--I gave you an order, XO. Put the Mk48 into command mode, order it
to kill Sierra 25.
That will sink the Kilo boat.
( TIME TO SWITCH TO DISK 4 AGAIN )
THE MASTER CHEIF AND XO MEET IN THE GALLEY, AND DISCOVER SOME EVIDENCE
POINTING TO MR. WHEELER. ONCE THEY CONFIRM IT'S PART OF THE DEVICE, THEY
REPORT TO THE CONN, AND INFORM YOU ABOUT THEIR DISCOVERY.
--Place him under arrest, XO.
--Put the gun down Wheeler, You don't really want to hurt anyone.
(Ice Cream 27)
Sonar operator reports contact with Akula submarine.
--Get me a firing solution.
--Match bearings and shoot.
--Mr. Foster, what's the time to Mk48 impact?
(Ice Cream 27)
In an effort to help, Ice Cream comes up with an ingenious diversion
for the Akula's torpedo.
--Come to periscope depth. Give him a nav fix.
--Ready tube two.
(Ice Cream 27 landing)
