I was sent to East China Sea to engage enemy shipping. I did so, but before I could refit and go out again I received new orders to patrol the straight of Formosa and engage enemy shipping. Now with nearly 100,000 tons, mostly from within the straight of Formosa, my orders are still incomplete. How can I get to the end of this mission? I've about worn a groove in the path from Taipei to Midway.

Depending on your timeframe you should be able to end your patrol either at Pearl Harbor or Midway.

You have to stay within a certain distance of the patrol star to complete the mission for a specific time. If you go outside, the timer resets.

How far and long depends on which mod if any you are running. Stock is like within 50 nm for around 48 hours.

I've been to Midway 3 times now to refill with torpedos, but the order sheet still says "incomplete" on the log.
