Attacks on U-202 during this patrol

29 Sep 1942
While attacking a large tanker off Trinidad U-202 was attacked by a US Catalina flying boat (Sqdn VP-53, USN). The two depth charges dropped damaged the air compressor, severely limiting the boats ability to dive. She nonetheless continued on patrol, and sank two ships before returning to base at Brest.
