    Did you possibly have friendly air cover ? If so, they may have robbed you of a good sink .I thought friendly air craft was cool at first, until they started sinking my targets.

    Can i ask a question, are you saving in between hits? Like are you firing one/two torpedo's and then saving, and then exiting the game and reloading?
    Recently, when in the middle of a large convoy battle, i noticed that after crippling a couple of ships(they did the usual, took a hit and then carried on) i then saved and returned to the game later. I noticed that they both started taking on water etc etc, they both went down some 10mins later but i never got the credit. So i loaded the same patrol again at the point of initial convoy contact, to test my theory, i did a similar thing, crippled a ship, saved, exited and reloaded. The same, it later sank and i never got the credit.
    This is probably not the case with you as you sound like you watched her go down in one sitting, but it is handy to know especially for those long convoy chases that can go on for hours........

    Ummm, thats really odd, it sounds like a glitch in the program....very annoying i know, the only thing i suggest is to save before any attack on a large liner/carrier/battleship etc etc, that way if you don't get the credit you could reload and see what happens the next time... i expect you do that now anyway after that experience!

    One other possibility from reading above. It has been noted by some that on your first campaign mission, if you mod the boat prior to completing the first mission, there is a bug which then causes your tonnage not to be recorded. I've never had that happen myself, but GW readme files cover the issue pretty well. I'm not sure if it is related to the game itself, or the mod.
