I noticed that the Japanese lifeboats have a starnge bouncing action on the ocean. Maybe patch1.2 fixes this?

Just guessing here, but it looks like the lifeboats are just scaled-down versions of the bigger ships without their own "small craft" hydrodynamic model, so the motion in waves (especially big waves) looks weird. I've seen them flying through the air, or flooded, but they don't sink.

I've also seen lifeboats zoom away at 15 kts. after a kill, which is probably a bug.

Hmm well I've had great success and a lot of morbid laughing as I roll up in my sub and use the deck gun to sink the survivors of every ship that goes down.

However I have noticed, it's harder than **** to hit them unless you're close, it can take 2-3 deck gun blasts to sink them. And they take FOREVER to sink, they slowly flood with water then the crew disappears once the boat goes under.

Leave no survivors!!
