I've played the game for sometime now and i'm just wondering where you guys usually encounter taskforces....i've come across alot of convoys but never seen any large warships at sea, in scapa flow or in any other port. when are there capital ships in scapa and where on the map is there a higher chance of comming across a taskforce?

And by the way, what about the arctic convoys that english warships from scapa escorted from the orkneys to russia? i've been lurking in the north on different occasions but never gotten any reports of convoys in the area from the orkneys to the north of norway. I thought these convoys were a regular prey for the u-boats during WWII...

Take a look at the campaign in the editor and you can see where the ships are or at least could be. I remember seeing a taskforce running around in the GIUK passage.

If you go to AM area such as am68 off of Ireland you will find huge convoys with carriers battlewagons Etc.

I found a few taskforces north-east of my favorite hunting grounds for single merchants, Scapa Flow.

I caught a small task force in the channel once, looked to be heading toward london from one of the southern ports. Two light cruisers and 3 destroyers. Actually sent a hail mary spread of torps, all type 1's, but at the closer destroyer. I figured there was no way I'd sneak two type 1's past the DD, and into the CLs. The entire convoy started an evasive turn, INTO the torpedos which missed the destroyer. I went into my own evade, didnt pay any more attention to the "wasted" torps. A minute later, BOOM BOOM!

One light cruiser evaded right into both torps of the spread aimed at the DD escort http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

That's my best warship kill so far.
