I've been sinking Frenchies in my campaign, since the beggining... now its 1940. Are you ever penalized for sinking french ships in SHIII ?

One way of telling is by looking at the map. The cities of belligerent nations will be red.

I drove an old Citroen once. That explained everything to me. I have no doubts.

France and England declared war against Germany at virtually the same time. The both become enemies right away.

They both declared war on Germany on the 3rd of September. Prior to that, both GB and France are neutral. So check your date before attacking. You don't want to create a dispute by sinking a British 30000 ton transatlantic steamer on the 2nd! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

LOL...

I knew that. Obviously France became enemies with Germany right off the bat. -What sparked my question about the 'neutrality' of France (in the game) is that in my first missions I found french Merchant Ships (with French Flags) that showed up as Neutral Color (orange) on the maps. So... why are they showing up orange -aka- Neutral in 1939 ??? Seriously. In my game the french are orange in 1939.

In my game, reported enemy ships are red, axis are blue, and neutral green.
And I have god's view off.
