Does anyone know what the "J" key "Release Decoy" actually does on later boats? I guess it releases a giant inflatable Marlene Deitrich which floats into the sky and distracts the British sex starved sailors long enough for you to sneak away unnoticed http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

No it isn't. All it says is "This order launches a decoy astern of the U Boat". What kind of decoy? An inflatable U boat? A hundred rubber ducks? What?

Its the Bold decoy it releases a canister to confuse the enemy so you can get away

It's an inflatable sub that surfaces and gives you a chance to run. By the time they've shot it full of holes and all the air is out, you should hopefully be long gone.

hehe... joke.. seriously though.

it's a noise maker thing. When deployed it makes a noise like a sub. Visually ingame it looks like a tin can with lots of bubbles coming out of it.

YOu deploy it and it fools the sonar of DD's etc.

It releases a metalic canister filled with chemicals.
It's basicly a noise maker that provides the destroyers with a second target for their ASDIC and hydrophones. Dempending on what type, it works for 2 to 15 minutes

Excellent. Cheers Guys. Haven't got them in my sub yet so, for the moment, I'll just keep dangling the sonarman on a long lead out the back. Gotta be good for something, let's try drowning!
