Goofs

Near the end, the recon aircraft overflying the ship is a Grumman S2 ASW aircraft. The S2 went into service in the US Navy in the early 1950s, and was retired from the US Navy in 1976. Major clues are the Magnetic Anomaly Detector probe protruding from the aircraft tail, the ESM pod behind the pilot's position, and the floodlight on the outboard on the leading edge of the starboard wing.

A different view of war at sea, and should be on vhs.
19 March 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is truly a classic! It portrays war at sea, as a deadly game of hide and seek. Cause as much havoc and destruction, without being identified or located. In this movie, the enemy(the British) has no idea what kind of ship(s) or submarine(s)are sinking vital merchant ships. It is a raider ship,with a clever Captain that can change the appearance of his ship as quickly as changing clothes! Nationalities were no obstacle. It also showed that all German officers were not followers of Hitler. This one, in real life, went on to serve as a NATO naval officer. This ship's crew should have lots of war stories for the grandchildren.
