Just wanted to know whether you can sink ships that are in dock.
I had success in one try of sinking two ships at Gibralta but the third [a tanker] took 3 torpeedoes and would not go down.

Is there a reason why some sink and not others, or was I just unlucky?

many thanks


ps, is the anti sonar paint worth aquiring, lol

yes, you can sink the ships in dock (you can sink friendlies too! just don't do that http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif)

Assuming you're using GW, or GWX, the ship damage is based on flooding, do try to hit in different places around the ship to make it go down.

PS. The antisonar stuff should get better over time.

1)Sure it is possible, all your hits might not be on critical spots after all. Check out part of this patrol (http://www.huntny.us/sh3/u49_8/page3.html) 3 steamers on impact pistol running 2m due to harbor depth took out a large cargo.

2)Can't help with the sonar question, never made it into late war yet. Someone else should be able to answer that. However I hear on a good ear grab the snorkel & radar detection as soon as you can.

Thanks fellas
I probably needed to spread my shots better from what you say . . .



BTW, what does GW & GWX stand for? Just a newbie http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/touche.gif

Don't worry... I asked myself the same question a while back.

GW : Grey Wolves
GWX : Grey Wolves Expansion

Get the Grey Wolves Expansion (http://www.users.on.net/%7Ejscones/GWX/) , it is worth every second of your download time...

Is this something I can add now, mid campagne, or would I have to start over?

What does it add?

Thanks Michael

I think you would have to start a new campaign with GWX so unless you want to do that finish your current campaign before installing GWX... but you can download it now and install it later http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I love heading into harbors. This ships just sit there! When they are in docks, I usually do a magnetic attack straight down the middle. It takes some time, but they usually go down. Just watch out for shore batteries.
