on tenth patrol in 1941, first flotilla, only corvettes, destroyer, and merchants on my books.Any idea on where the battle groups are? do you find them only by radio reports? and, are there ever any ships in ports (anchored), I havent found any.

If your using the stock game they are not that easy to find, but they are there. If you patch sh3 with either WAC/GWX, they are more common out there.

Try near Gibraltar, as well as between England and Scotland. It took me 5 campaigns to find a task force. Be patient

Or try the Med. I encounter multiple taskforces every patrol (around Alexandria mostly)

"Found" in the Med. Nice place, but beware of radarequiped Mosquitos at night!

...And remember, no U-Boat that entered the Med through the Straits of Gibraltar... ever returned!

bill268, you should try SH3Gen. It will help you to locate warships and tasks forces.

Maybe they were lost to the Ansons? or Beaufighters? Walrus'es? Now that I think about it and remember the damage done to our boat, maybe it's not that good an idea to join us in the Med?

Everytime I hind a battle group I get my sub handed to me on a silver platter. They move too quick to get into position. When I try, the escorts are all over me. Just give me a few troop transports and tankers!

I often hit and run, try to sink some ship inside the convoy and crash dive before all of them come searching for me, when I m sure I go up and go on firing.Its no easy !!!!!

I does depend on where you patrol, even in War Ace where Task foce reports are semi-ferquent.
