Are there Q ships in SH3?

I have not run into any after ~25 patrols throughout the 1939-45 period.

Q ships really were a WWI (I think) thing and not very common in WWII.
The US had like 5 for a short time. Only one Q ship in WWII ever met a U-boat, the U-boat won.
That U-Boat was U-123 with Reinhard Hardegen in his second (and last) Operation Drumbeat patrol.

ok thanks. Shame though as I think that they would have made a nice extra thing to watch out for.
Who needs Q-ships when you have these.....
much more effective Uboat killers.

Yes there were only a few but one of them played quite a role in ww-2.

Take special note of the "History of Atlantis"
It played an important role in the breaking of the british cypher codes. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
Schiff 16 or Raider-C (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlantis_auxiliary_cruiser)

Agreed JU88, but Q-Ships were a desperate plan b4 them plane arrived in-mass.
