Starting off a campaign in '40 on a VIIB. The option to get the sonarman to give ranging info on a target, precise or estimated are grayed out, so I cant get any information http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

Any ideas why?

Oh, and yes I am submerged http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Sorry if this is a stupid question, search yeilded no results.

All I have is a guess. Prior to patch 1.2, those options were there, but unrealistic. Uboats didn't have active sonar at that point. I got the SGerat active sonar added to my VIIB in the campaign around June of 42, and while I have the SENDE button back, I still can't use the "Estimate/Precise Range to Target" options. I have a suspicion that those are passive functions releated to the Niebelung sonar, which won't be out until 1944 or so.
