I love the game,but I experimented a bit by compressing to 8 or 16 and watched the Jap destroyers for a while,well!!!I didnt know they had disc brakes in WW11,can turn on a dime!!Stop and reverse at full steam etc,etc.I have noticed a couple of times how the destroyers turn ridiculously sharp at the last minute before a torp hits them.But of course I realise its just a game and cannot be perfect,but it isnt far off perfect...I love it:>http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gifAnother weird thing was I got sunk by a destroyer the other day,and it was a long way away from me as I sank a small tanker.But Hey!!its a game....Im off to take some GRAVOL now as Im feeling a bit sea-sick:>http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

try messing up a TF in bad weather. Carriers like to floor it and occasionaly they or a CL or CA will actualy run over a DD. Sometimes there's an explosion. Other times they roll over so fast they just make a splash and that's the end of'em. Not that you'll ever hear me complain about self sinking enemies..

The Japs can call in air support if there's an airbase or land nearby. If you were submerged, as I suppose, you probably never saw the plane that got you. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
I read a book by a Japanese destroyer captain. In his book he says that his destroyer took approximately 30 minutes to reach top speed, 15 to 20 minutes under combat conditions.

someone should do a mod that updates stock so the american subs can use tactical support, rather than only the germans. Hopefully it's something they will preserve in the jap capaign mod, because it's a cool feature to be able to attack with a allied force.
