Mission Introduction: "May 1941. The rise in the sinking of the allied ships by the hand of the German submarines continue to increase, reaching the record sum of 700,000 tonnes. The frigid waters of the North Sea are the most dangerous for the allied vessels. The area is under constant patrol of German destroyers and submarines, which also count on the aerial support of units stationed in Norway, Denmark and Northern Germany. The Reich zealously protect these waters, the doorway to their most important shipyards, ports and industrial installations in northern Germany. The British Navy imposing its superiority in the Atlantic and other European seas at the cost of the loss of hundreds of ships dares not venture into this deadly area. The enormous blocks of ice, and the minefields, as well as the continuous patrols by the German U-boats and destroyers make this area the nightmare of British seamen."

This mission is set somewhere on the North Pole. The main objective is to escape with the enigma machine. This mission is related to 'Night of the Wolves' and 'Das Boot, Silent Killers' It continues some time after you have taken the captured Allied submarine and escaped the German U-Boat base.
