    A new first for me.

    Today I attacked a convoy. A little bit differently then I normally do. I usually shoot and run, this time I shot and moved to reposition myself for a second shot. I managed to hit three ships. two broke up and sank, the third was burning on the surface. I could not get a lock on it, checked the map andsaw that it "sunk" as well. I got credit for all three with one still on the surface.

    Has anyone else ever sunk a ship that did not sink? The water depth is over 1000 feet so it is not aground on anything.

    Nice shooting......Yes I have Momoyama's sometimes that don't sink (forgot what they're called in stock). They just sit there even though I get credit in my log, but no 'sunk ship' icon on the map. They don't show on radar either but it's more than just a visual bug as I have seen other Japanese ships change course to avoid them. They were always in deep water as well, I just have to pay attention when I stay near one so there is no collision.

    It happens to me on occasion. I never noticed the ship class. After getting the sink confirmation, I normally don't stick around long enough to see if it eventually sinks.

    It was one of the small coastal freighters. I got the sunk ship icon. The last time I saw it, it was still on fire with decks awash. Normally a DD or two will hang around a damaged ship for a while, but everyone just sailed away from it. I thought about going back and using the deck gun on it, but I already got credit, so I continued on my end around for another attack, but the convoy had slipped away.

    Most of the time they have a camouflaged skin.

    The Hog Island freighter. I hate those things. Half the time when i kill them they don't sink. Quite a common occurrence.

    It usually only happens when I let my xo take the scope for the attack.....The fire control party don't help much either.
